We would like users to be able to view groups created via Teams in the GAL. I found the article but cannot find documentation on docs.microsoft.com. Does anyone have a link to Microsoft's advice on this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Still holds true, the command Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "Marketing Team" -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled:$false on any Team you want to appear in the GAL still should work today. By default that is set true on new teams, but you can change it false to show it still. 

 

I can't find any MIcrosoft doc that actually talks about it, but the actual Powershell command documentation has the switches and what they do: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/exchange/users-and-groups/set-unifiedgroup?view=e...

 

Toggling HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled to $false doesn't toggle the value of HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled though, so make sure to check/toggle that one as well.

Ughg, the names are too similar. I meant the Hiddenfromaddresslist one :). Good catch!

Well they should check both anyway :)
