Tell people that swearing isn't conducive to a modern workplace or a learning environment and shouldn't be done! Seriously though nothing built in for this as far as I am aware though I don't know if a 3rd party solution can help at all. It's a feature request - Profanity filters in Teams.

Has anyone figured this out? Is MS working on it? Was just sitting in a meeting with MS Team and they didn't know if you can set this up or not.

I noticed something new on the Microsoft 365 roadmap today that could help with this: Featured ID: 43257
"Supervision is now expanding to include Teams content. In addition supervision review will now take place within the Security & Compliance center directly to improve ease of use and ability to take bulk actions. Also included in this update is the ability to use offensive language classifier to detect communications for monitoring."
So a supervision policy with an offensive language classifier sounds like it could accomplish this but according to the documentation there are licence requirements as follows:
"Users monitored by supervision policies must have either an Office 365 Enterprise E3 license with the Advanced Compliance add-on or be included in an Office 365 Enterprise E5 subscription."
Oh, also this has just been posted on the blog: Use Supervision to monitor email, Microsoft Teams, manage risk, meet regulatory requirement and more
"For example, you could monitor your organization for potential human resources violations such as harassment or the use of inappropriate or offensive language in employee communications."

In addition to Supervision you can now easily configure a DLP policy specific for Teams, import you list of terms/profanities and voila!
Both Supervision and DLP can leverage a custom sensitive type based on a dictionary of terms (up to 100,000 words) so it all depends if you want to proactively block the content and/or be more passive and review it afterwards for repeat violations (not just in Teams but also emails and more).
