Hi,

 

Is there a global setting to prevent users from creating new channels? I can only find a way to disable private channels, but nothing for ordinary channels?

Hi @Magnus Goksøyr,

 

Thank you for replying.

 

I knew about the local disable from within the Teams themselves, but I am looking for a global way to do this, so I don't have to go through every single Team.

@miclarsen1 Hi! I believe you're looking for 'Set-Team' and the -AllowCreateUpdateChannels parameter.
