Any way to customize the 'You cannot create a team' text and/or URL Redirect?

John Benak

We're getting ready to lock down Group/Team/etc creation in AAD via the group membership, and rather than present users with a hard stop and no other info when they click the 'create a team' button I'd like to be able to either:

1.  Auto-redirect them to a SPO site that is the entryway to our Team creation request workflow, or

2.  At least customize the text in the error msg to provide a URL to the SPO site where they can go on and complete their Team request.


Haven't seen anything like this in AAD, but am hoping there is something.

No, unfortunately there is no options to customize this at the moment! It would be great though!

Please make a uservoice! I didn’t seem to find any for this!


To follow up on this, I did some testing in my Test tenant for restricting group creation.  Locked group creation down in AAD, & logged in with one 'allowed' acct and one that was not a member & tried to create a team with each.  Of course the 'allowed' worked.  There was a tile to Create a Team, and one to Join a Team


Logging in with the non-allowed acct I was surprised to see that the in 'Join or create a Team' the tile/option to  'Create a Team' was not even there.  Hmm...


This was new to me, and for the good IMHO.  While it eliminates the 'hard-stop' error, we'll still have to make sure users know where to go to create one..  Education/Communication should take care of that.  


Anyone know when this change happened?
