When creating a Microsoft Teams private channel by default, it creates a brand new SharePoint site which will store all the information related to that private channel. This is a special site that contains a couple of settings. I will leave at reference an article that you can check to check those settings. I will share some PnP PowerShell commands that will help us to get this information.

A few weeks ago, I was playing with the Microsoft Teams creation using Microsoft Graph endpoint and as expected, a couple of teams were created because of that. Using these endpoints can be extremely useful to automate a process on our organization. However, when you’re doing this it will create a lot of “testing” teams. This is also applicable to Teams that are not “testing”.

Do you know you can send email to Microsoft Teams channel? If so you are familiar with this feature, you know it generates an email that is far from being friendly. With this blog post, I will show how you can make some configurations to have a friendly email which will be a lot easier for the end-user.

When a user creates a News Post on a SharePoint site there are a couple of options out-of-box that will send some notifications. However, if an user accesses the Microsoft Teams, for example, he will never know something as been added to the site. So the option shown on this blog post is the most easy and fastest way to get information to Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams allow you to quickly increase your collaboration and creating live events are extremely useful for some scenarios inside your organization. These type of event have some key features that you’ll not be able to get from the regular meetings that are organized on a daily bases. This features can be used for example to share a new product that you’re planning to release, have some training session, webinar, etc.

Often during our daily work, we’ve notification pop-up here and there on our screens, this disturbs our concentration on certain tasks. When that happen you can miss the logic that you’re developing to complete a task. To overcome these situations, modern communication tools allow you to set your availability to “Do-not-Disturb(DND)”. But, I’ll say that it depends. There are some persons that you may want to be disturbed by.

Often I do remote sessions where I need to request control over the other person PC. However, the Microsoft Teams has this option is deactivated by default. That can make this meeting to take longer and in the next blog post, I’ll let you know on how to activate this option on Microsoft Teams.
