What’s new in managing apps and integration in Microsoft Teams? (03-19)

In this post I’d like to note a recent announcement which improves the admin experience to manage apps and integrations in Microsoft Teams. To keep it short and simple, the following configuration options were announced by Microsoft:

  • Teams App Setup Policies – Who get’s which apps displayed?
  • Teams App Permission Policies – Define who can install which apps
  • Bulk Assignment via PowerShell – Assign the above policies by using a PowerShell (Script and CSV)

Conclusion, opinion and summary

To me, these two options for managing apps and integration will help to enable what Teams users need or don’t need. Plus it’s another step in the right direction towards a more comprehensive and granular management of Microsoft Teams as a hub for modern teamwork.
