Teams Admin Center in Office 365

The new Microsoft Teams Admin Center has arrived.



You can access as an Office 365 Admin the new Teams Admin Center:
https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/dashboard

Best for us is, that we 1st can slowly prepare for the shift from SfB to Teams. Therefore, it is not possible managing policies easily within this new Admin Portal. This portal is under constant development and will further grow over the comming month.

NOTE:

When the migration of these settings is complete, we’ll disable them in the Office 365 Admin center and the Skype for Business Admin center.

Admin Center Features:

  • Microsoft Teams messaging policy: Create policy for user-level management of the Microsoft Teams client experience for Messaging scenarios.
  • Microsoft Teams interop policy: Configure the interoperability experience between Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.
  • Microsoft Teams guest messaging settings: Control the messaging capabilities for guest accounts in Microsoft Teams.
  • Federation settings: Manage the federation between tenants for Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business.
  • User management: Assign policies and configure user accounts.
  • Audio conferencing: Configure dial-in numbers and settings for Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams.

The following table identifies the sections of the current Teams experience that will be migrated and shows the relationship between the current settings and the policies in the new Admin portal.

Manage settings during the migration

We plan to migrate Teams settings in sections in the following sequence: Messaging, Meetings, Calls, and lastly, the sections within the TeamsClient Configuration policy (General, Email integration, and Custom cloud storage).
You can continue to modify settings in the Office 365 Admin center and the Skype for Business Admin center until migration for a section is complete for your tenant.
The following table shows where you can manage features during the migration.

Manage settings after the migration

Microsoft will notify you after migration is complete for a specific section within Teams.
At that time, you’ll be able to see your existing settings for that section in the Office 365 Admin center, but you won’t be able to make any modifications there. Instead, you’ll use the Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center to manage the newly migrated settings.
When the migration of these settings is complete, we’ll disable them in the Office 365 Admin center and the Skype for Business Admin center.
