Creating Custom Images for Channel Announcement Posts in the New Teams


The new Teams client applies AI to the creation of custom announcement images by invoking Designer to generate images either from scratch or based on your input. The new mechanism generates some nice images that can be extensively customized with Designer. It’s more complex than the way the Teams classic client handled custom announcement images, but the output is nicer.

@Tony Redmond Hi Tony, I am actually looking for a way to disable this feature. It is causing a simple daily task I do take much more time. I am trying to create a simple banner image (image changes daily) with the date overlayed as text “Monday 3/18” with no change to the image. The new forced use of the AI makes this impossible without selecting the closest option, going into designer and editing the text.


do you know of a way I can disable this feature or make it optional?
