My Org has decided to push forward with Teams and looking to do a pretty quick migration. The only available policies in our portal are Skype for business Only and Islands mode. All the documentation I can find shows all the other options but just says they are coming. Some of the commands are available in powershell, but seem to not do anything if we set them. 

 

Can we get a time frame on those being rolled out, or is there a way to request them for an org that wants to aggressively move to teams only but has a large Skype for business presense?

 

Thanks for the help!

Hi! The teams only mode can be used via PowerShell! Please read this earlier thread about this topic:
https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Switching-to-Teams-Only-Mode/td-p/207544

Cheers / Adam

Thanks, Very helpful thread. While hitting it with that sledge hammer is possible, its not ideal. We were hoping that we could use some of the other modes to roll it out in pieces to get people use to it before flipping that Teams only switch. 

 

 

Just had a look in my tenant and you can set the other modes in PowerShell using Grant-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy. You'll need to install the Skype module (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/powershell/manage-skype-for-business-online-wi...) and then take a read of this - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/MicrosoftTeams/migration-interop-guidance-for-teams-with-skype#team....

 

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-CsTeamsUpgradePolicy | select Identity, Mode

Identity Mode

Does anyone have an ETA on when the SfBWithTeamsCollabAndMeetings (with and without notify) will become available on tenants? Those are still missing.

That's the one that we are waiting for really, to get them to already start doing meetings in Teams and then last step voice calling (we have PSTN connectivity as well to consider).
