Hi 

 

How do I prevent an Owner (Team/group) deleting a Team ? 

5 Replies
There’s no way of doing this afaik! If you are an owner you will be able to delete the group! It is possible to restore an deleted group for 30 days though! Also by using retention policies etc you can make sure msg and files are kept!

There is a uservoice for this one which is known by Microsoft

@adam deltinger  - Could it be done with a retention policy combined with Teams classification?

 

If classification Confident retain for 10 years ?  

Afaik not supported at the moment but it’s the idea
You could also get notified whenever someone deletes a team, using the teamDeleted event in the audit logs.

@Taen keren you can configure retention for Teams conversations and for the files through SharePoint, it doesn't retain the Team itself but content will be available in content search. You could write powershell to apply retention based on classification.
