Hello,

A text 'IT' appears in the upper right of my profile picture from yesterday. What does the 'IT' mean ? 

 It is true that I belong to IT (Office 365 team). But how did Teams know it? 

 

Thanks.

That's a designation of the "ring" your Teams client (and organization) is running in, as in the version of the client and the service.

Hello Vasil, 

 

Thanks for the explanation. Could you explain more about it in detail?

I think you guessed my Office 365 knowledge level too high. :)

 

I really appreciate your effort.

Thanks

 

 

Solution

As with most other O365 services, Microsoft releases Teams updates in "rings" in order to get additional validation. Read here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/admin/manage/release-options-in-office-365?view=o365-worl...

 

You as an Microsoft employee are in a "lower" ring compared to the general public, and the "IT" designation signifies that.

Vasil, 

 

My curiosity has been resolved thanks to you.

 

I thank you!
