We have an Office 365 hybrid environment and I’ve already nixed Teams within the admin portal. Our company does not use Teams, and yet it installs for every user on every workstation at every sign-in. The fact that we don’t use it and don’t intend to use it and that it hogs an incredible amount of resources, we want and NEED to prevent/stop Teams from downloading and installing.

So… how do we go about nixing this crippling software on our hybrid environment?

Teams is now part of the Office 365 pro plus suite! To do custom installs and exclude Teams from this please see here:

After briefly skimming that article, it seems to address my question. Thanks, I appreciate it.
