Updated navigation in Microsoft Teams admin center makes it easier to find what you need

Published Oct 01 2021 08:00 AM 6,934 Views

The Microsoft Teams Admin Center gives admins the tools they need to manage the teams used in their organization and finding those tools is important. We reorganized the left navigation bar in the Teams Admin Center to make it easier for you to find the things you are looking for and better navigate through the tools you use most in a more intuitive way based on listening to your needs.

The new left navigation bar organizes the Teams Admin Center into more closely related features, making it easier to find relevant and related tasks to complete set up and deployment within the Teams Admin Center. We’ve updated several sections and added a new "Users" section!

These changes were built on listening to your feedback via user studies and community involvement. We are always looking for ways to improve and excited to learn more from our users. Please continue to send us feedback.

What’s changed?

1. Teams
The Teams section, which allows you to manage Teams general experiences, has been updated to include all the settings related to Teams, channels, templates and clients. We’ve also added the Teams settings page, the Teams update policies page, and the Teams upgrade settings page.



2. Users
We are adding a brand new section called “Manage Users”, which allows admins to easily manage all user needs in one place. The section also includes settings for guest users and external users.



3. Teams devices
The Teams Devices section, formerly known as Devices, will help you manage multiple types of Teams devices from one place . In addition, we have renamed the following pages to ensure consistent naming of Teams settings and capabilities.

  • “Teams Rooms” -> “Teams Rooms on Windows”
  • “Collaboration bars” -> “Teams Rooms on Android”
  • “Teams panels” -> “Panels”
  • “Teams displays” -> “Displays”
  • “IP phones” -> “Phones”



4. Voice
We’ve updated the Voice section to include all the settings related to Teams Telephony, Teams Voice applications and related policies. We’ve also added the Holidays page and the Resources accounts page.



5. Analytics & reports
The Analytics & reports section, provides you an easy access to your web reports and analytics. The Reporting labels page and the Call quality dashboard are now located under the Analytics & reports section as well.

uhm... excuse me, where's the chat?




@Ronit_Ben_Sheffer , will the manage users in the admin center allow us to see a users's Team memberships and roles in the future? 

Currently, if I want to know what Teams a user has access to, I go to the M365 admin center > User> search for the user & see what groups they belong to.  I then go to look up each of those groups individually (either in Teams admin or M365 admin) to see if the user in a member or owner.

I would love to at least be able to go to the users in the Teams admin center, look up an individual, and see all their Teams under their name.

About the Teams devices, do you have plans to give support for these settings also on the PowerShell module? Or has the PS become a sunset platform and nobody use that anymore?


But also, we already can pull the logs from the devices using the TAC. The big question is: when we are able to pull the end-user logs from TAC?


And the final confuses is the reporting labels. Are you really saying that you are unable to use the location information uploaded already into CQD? Or why I need to do this again? Or do you have plans to wipe out CQD in future, and this would be kind of preparation to it?
