I'm creating a new Team and I have to add new user to this Team but I don't want that the users receive the welcome email.

had tried to disable this function with a rule filter in Exchange and with this command in PowerShell

 

Set-UnifiedGroup $groupName -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-unifiedGroup | Select-object -Property DisplayName, WelcomeMessageEnabled

DisplayName               WelcomeMessageEnabled
-----------               ---------------------
MyTeam                            False

But nothing of this works fine and the new users are receiving this emails.

How can I do it?

Regards

Hi @Juan Carlos González Martín, thanks for your reply.

 

The problem is that I have used this solution, but it doesn't work:

 

Set-UnifiedGroup MyTeam -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false

PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> Get-unifiedGroup | Select-object -Property DisplayName, WelcomeMessageEnabled

DisplayName               WelcomeMessageEnabled
-----------               ---------------------
MyTeam                            False  

 

After this, when I add a new user, this user receive an invitations.

 

I don't know what can I do to solve this.

 

I have been speaking with Microsoft Teams Support and this is their reply:

 

hope my mail meets you well
 
Thank you for your response.
 
My understanding from the last mail sent by design it is not possible to restrict the email prompt gotten when a guest user is added to a team or channel, this was designed as a security measure to alert members of the teams just in the event of any security posing issues to the tenant/Organization.
 
 

@vcima 
I have found that, if you use PowerShell to add members to the Office 365 Group connected to the Team, it will not send an email...

 

Get-UnifiedGroup -Identity "<Group Name>" | Add-UnifiedGroupLinks -LinkType Members -Links <emailofmember>
