disable teams notification when a user is added

Copper Contributor

Hello world,

 

Whenever i add somebody as member to a team(Using Graph APIs). A notification is displayed on the screen of the newly added member.

 

The business requirement states that this member is to be added and removed multiple times in a day and I don't want the user to get frustrated by all the notifications he will get.

 

Is there a way i can add a user without him getting a notification on teams?

 

This teams group is security enabled and we are trying to control the access that a user has by adding and removing him from this teams group.

 

Thanks in advance,

Anubhav

Hi @anubhav1987 

Have you tried to disable the Welcome Message on the group level?

You can give it a try using PowerShell but you need an Exchange admin role to be able to do this:

# import module ExchangeOnlineManagement
Import-Module ExchangeOnlineManagement

# connect to Exchnge Online
Connect-ExchangeOnline -UserPrincipalName <UPN> [-ExchangeEnvironmentName <Value>] [-ShowBanner:$false] [-DelegatedOrganization <String>] [-SkipLoadingFormatData]

# check if the WelcomeMessageEnabled is true
Get-UnifiedGroup <group ID>|fl WelcomeMessageEnabled

# set WelcomeMessageEnabled to False
Get-UnifiedGroup <group ID> | Set-UnifiedGroup -UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled:$false 

 

It looks that this works on my side, but I am not sure if this is not yet another option that needs to be set. I haven't found anything in the Teams management settings. 

 

Let me know if this worked or how did you solved if you found another solution.

Same issue here. We have tried disabling the welcome message but that only helps with the welcome email you receive informing you've been added to a 365 group. It does not affect the Teams activity notification.
