Hi,

 

Do you have plans to let administrators to control what images people are allowed to upload or share as meeting background? Would be nice if we could setup pictures used in our school and that is all.

 

It is pretty annoying that students can put what ever pictures to their background and make it public.

@Petri X, thanks for your question.  We have released admin policies that allow you to control custom backgrounds.  Learn more here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/meeting-policies-in-teams#meeting-policy-settings---...

Thank you @angelamsft for your reply, and good to see that there is some control. But you are really not giving us possibility to use only customized picture?

 

We could limit the accesses by ACLs to that folder (perhaps users cannot overwrite that?) and having only our own pictures. Or how did you though we could limit it? But we like to get rid of the default pictures as well.

 

I believe I cannot be the first one asking this.

@Petri X, thanks for adding more information.  To clarify, are you wanting the ability for the IT admin to define a custom and fixed set of default backgrounds for their tenant?  I'll make sure your feedback is brought back to the team.

@angelamsft my org limits a users ability to upload their own images, thanks for that policy option... however, as a global enterprise, our marketing team does want to deploy custom branded backgrounds.  With the current policy options, this does not appear to be possible. The ability to display managed custom org-wide backgrounds would be helpful.

Thank you for listening. Yes, would like to offer users the schools/companies brand backgrounds or/and then user's own background (depends of client policy user is granted).

 

We are already looking for how to deliver the branded pictures for users using our own software deployment service. But still the default pictures are always on top of the list and our custom images are on bottom.

 

Just take a short view and looks like lock down the "Uploads" folder could be challenging as user is owner of that folder.
