We are working to provision company Teams for our users discreetly as we revamp our corporate intranet using a combination of Teams/SharePoint comm sites/hubs. We'd like to turn off the invitation emails while we provision teams and membership until we are ready to fully deploy. Is that possible?

When you create a unified group, you can disable welcome emails using the parameter "UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled" - it's on by default.  So you can first create the unified groups and set that to $false, then convert those groups to teams using the Teams PowerShell cmdlet

 

  • New-Team -Group <GroupId of the group you just created>

Hi @Isabella Lubin 

 

I'm following this steps to disable the initial emails and when I finish the step 6 I'm obtaining a message with somethig like this: "WARNING: The command completed successfully, but no configuration value has been changed from
"mygroup_objectid"" . What can I do in this case?

 

  1. $groupName = "<Replace Group Name>"
  2. Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned
  3. $UserCredential = Get-Credential
  4. $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
  5. Import-PSSession $Session -DisableNameChecking
  6. Set-UnifiedGroup $groupName -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false
