Office 365 Updates

Office 365 Update: Microsoft Teams is now on-by-default

As we communicated last month, in MC93471, we are turning Microsoft Teams on-by-default at the organization level, for all eligible users with the appropriate license assignment. Microsoft Teams is now on-by-default.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 61652.

How does this affect me?

The ‘Turn Microsoft Teams on or off for your entire organization’ setting in ‘Settings > Services and Add-ins > Microsoft Teams’, went from a default value of “off” to a default value of “on”.

Microsoft Teams is now available to all eligible users with the appropriate license assignment. You can continue to manage user access to Microsoft Teams via license assignments.

If you have explicitly removed the Teams license for a specific user, they will not have access to Teams when we make this change.

Microsoft Teams is available in the following Office O365 commercial suites: Business Essentials, Business Premium, and Enterprise E1, E3, and E5 plans. Microsoft Teams will also be available to existing E4 customers who purchased E4 before its retirement. Microsoft Teams is not available to Education and Government customers, at this time.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

If you do not rely on this setting to govern user access to Microsoft Teams, there is no action you need to take. Learn more by going to http://teams.microsoft.com.

If you currently rely on this setting to govern user access to Microsoft Teams, please migrate over to managing access via user licensing.
