MC465912: Manage Surface Hubs as Teams devices from Teams admin center

When this will happen

The feature is going to start rolling out to all the tenants from mid-November and will finish by early-December.

How this will affect your organization

In the Teams admin center, your tenant administrators will find the section – ‘Surface Hubs’ under the ‘Teams devices’ section, in the left navigation panel. This section will display the list of all the Surface Hubs enrolled for the tenant and their key details like – Signed-in user, device health, and IP address. Focused details are available by clicking on the device to navigate to the individual device details page – like software health, OEM serial number, meeting activity of the signed-in user, and list of the operations carried out on the device.

Details present on the individual device page –

  • Health – It shows the Connectivity health and Software health of the device
  • Details – Shows the device related properties like – Device name, IP address, OEM serial number, Tags, etc.
  • Activity – shows the meeting details of the user signed-in on the device
  • History – lists the asynchronous operations carried out on the devices.

There are some navigational tools present to help you manage the inventory –

  • Manage tags – add and remove tags to the users to organize them as needed
  • Filter – filter on the field of your choice to identify the required devices
  • Search – search for specific devices based on their username, display name, device name, or the tags associated with them
  • Export – export the list of devices and their details in a csv file

The administrator managing the devices can carry out a variety of operations on these devices –

  • Restart devices
  • Download device logs
  • Edits settings

What you need to do to prepare

You do not need to do anything to prepare. This change will take effect on its own and Surface Hubs will get enrolled if they are online and signed-in. If you do not see your devices enrolled on the Teams admin center, please try updating them.
