Is there a firm deadline by which customers need to move from Skype for Business Online to Teams?

The FAQ states to check the Roadmap but it really doesn't say if there is, the roadmap has not been updated in a while.  If we plan to migrate Q3 2019 will that be possible or will we be forced to migrate before then?

There is no current deadline so far except for the newly created tenants under 1000 seats! Those no longer includes S4b

This page, https://blogs.partner.microsoft.com/mpn-newzealand/skype-business-online-microsoft-teams-transition-... , gives another information:

 

Upcoming Key Dates: 

  • Starting Oct. 1st, new Office 365 customers with 500 seats or less will be onboarded to Microsoft Teams and will not have access to Skype for Business Online. Tenants that are already using Skype for Business online will be able to continue doing so (including provisioning new users) until they complete their transition to Microsoft Teams.
  • Microsoft has begun offering automatic upgrades from Skype for Business Online to Teams for Microsoft direct customers. Starting November 1st, we will begin offering partner associated customers automatic upgrades from Skype for Business Online to Teams.  Tenant Administrators will be given advance notification via email and through the Office 365 Message Center.
Thank you! I said the wrong number about the seats! It’s 500 of course!
Thanks for posting additional information about this!!
