We are at the point where we want to switch the majority of our users to Teams-Only mode.  I went to the admin console, but Teams Only Mode is not an option listed.

I am not really all that clear on how to get from Skype to Teams.  There are plenty of articles documenting the "journey" but I cannot find anything that tells me how to flip the switch.

Right now, we have users S4B users who have all launched Teams.  So messages FROM Teams end up in TEAMS for most people.  We'd like to get rid of Skype so that they stay in Teams and don't miss messages.

We are only dealing with Chat.  There is no meeting or calling going on.  We just need to get Skype turned off for everyone and the Teams-Only Mode sure seems like the ticket...except I don't seem to have the option to switch to this mode.

Anyone done this yet?  Tips?  Tricks?

For my own instance, I went and removed my Skype license.  I still show up in Skype, but I appear offline and no one can send me a message.  Not really all that smooth.

What options are present? It's possible it might require the newer presence features before that option can activate.

Do you have contact groups in chat inside of Teams yet? Where it shows Recent / Contacts tabs instead of just favorites?

I only show ISLANDS and SKYPE FOR RBUSINESS ONLY as options.

As far as chat contacts, I see:
Favorites
Recent

Yeah, you don't have the latest presence updates to your tenant yet. This might be a prerequisite to turning on Teams only mode, not 100% sure but just a hunch.

Also, you said you removed your Skype for Business license? That's usually not recommended cause some of the back end bits still require that license. Assuming you were trying Teams only mode anyway before removing your license?

Also do you have the option of doing it on a per user basis? I know i did it for myself testing.

Gonna see if i can't find out about the presence updates on the backend being required or not.

Yeah, I just went to my other tenant, which does not have the latest Teams / Skype presence integration and I do not have Teams Only mode. Pretty sure this is a prereq for this option. It'll just be a matter of time for that to roll out, once you get that going, you will see your chat tab update and also start to notice Out of Office status's etc. (it's a great update). Once you get that, go back and check and I bet you will have the option.

Is there any way to tell where we stand in the rollout? 

There are still some scenarios being worked on and tested to make the experience robust, but if you really wat to go Teams only now you can with powershell.

 

Grant-CsTeamsInteropPolicy -PolicyName DisallowOverrideCallingTeamsChatTeams -Identity $SipAddress

 

 

Not currently Todd, I wouldn't think it should be that much longer but it took one of my tenants a long time to get the admin center, but I wouldn't say more than another few weeks at most.

Still struggling with this.  Oddly, if I run the PowerShell script to put myself in TEAMS ONLY mode, it DOES show up that way in the Admin Console.  But all of the other users still don't have the GUI option to select TEAMS ONLY.

Hoping we get this rollout soon.

It looks like we DO have the latest presence update now.  I can create contact groups now...which is nice.

Hey @Todd Purifoy apparently the admin center isn't matching up with actual feature sets since My Teams only mode has been removed from UI for whatever reason, so apparently it's just best to go with good ole, powershell. I have wrote an article with a good link and example how to set Teams Only policy for a user, and then for your entire org. Hopefully this helps if you haven't figured it out yet :).

thanks mate

giving that a whirl now

Thanks for this quick and easy guide. I also don't have the Teams Only option as of yet. Do you know if I can use this command with a list of users as opposed to single individuals?

We're on a targeted release tenant. Although, I still can't chose to move users and/or tenant to Teams only mode.

 

Any ideas/suggestions. Will try the PS variant in the mean time.

This is not releases yet through UI! Only powershell

Hey John, sorry don't get these notifications on old posts unfortunate since I had to switch accounts to job change. You can feed a list of users with an import to a variable object then pipe that to the command. I'm no PS expert but let me see if I can find something close to it :).
There are probably 90 ways of doing this, but you could use this import with a foreach. Get it going so it shows the output, then you can replace the writehosts with the set teams commands for each user using the variable for the usernames.

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15173213/import-csv-and-foreach
Import-CSV $filepath -Header IP1,IP2,IP3,IP4 | Foreach-Object{
Write-Host $_.IP1
Write-Host $_.IP2
...
}
Not exactly true, just not everyone has it for some reason even still. My targeted release tenant at my previous job has had the UI ability over 2 months ago. Not sure what the hold up is on some other tenants. Might be related to certain settings in existing skype infrastructure or something making it take longer or they found issues and quit deploying. Not sure :).
Oh! I though it was in some tenants in UI but later removed! IF some tenants still has it , i was wrong :)
But the conclution is that if you if you
Dont see it - go to PowerShell if necessary

Maybe for those that already did the Teams Only thing it's there for.... My old one still has it set. Odd indeed. But yeah, always my powershell script :P.

It might be because of the fact that we didn't  switch our coexistence mode to a current one until last week. We were still running on the deprecated mode. I just switched us to Island for now. 

I thought that too, but haven't seen a change in my test tenant even thou it's set that way. Also current company tenant I did Teams Only for the whole tenant, still doesn't show in UI, it's just a blank :P. But I know it works cause everyone's Skype for Business disabled :).

I have that same mixed environment experience myself. I.e the Teams only mode was visible early on, "got lost" and now I need to use PS.

 

Although not that difficult to use the PS but much easier to have it in the GUI. There prob are something in the background toggling this. Have not (yet) pushed my whole tenant to Teams Only mode but user/team by user/team are moved (via PS).

When will the coexistence modes and TEAM only mode be available for all tenants? We seem to always be on the tail end of new deployments and, with our Go-Live for TEAMS set for Jan 2019, I'm getting concerned. Is there anyone able/willing to give us a ballpark idea so I know if our project plan is realistic or not?

Thanks!

It should already be live, just not in the UI, did you check my blog about enabling in Powershell?
https://webbtech365.blogspot.com/2018/08/cannot-set-users-or-tenant-to-teams.html

We started Testing through powershell and assigning to users - but we found out the polices are not enforced yet - thus our testing failed... we are waiting for them to Enforce so we can inform our users on what to expect... any idea when this will be done?

 

 

 

Attached is a screenshot from MS 

This document is correct. 

 

If you are trying Teams Only mode it will be enforced but not all of the interop poilicies are fully available yet. 

New post today about presence updates, so we are another step closer to full interop. It's possible some of these updates happened with this they just haven't said anything yet.
