Hi all,

I m new to Teams and looking to deploy it in our organisation. We have 10 in our office on DomainA/TenantA and 10 in another office on DomainB/TenantB (for regulatory reasons). We would like to set up a common team to chat, and have a few questions:

 

  1. As I understand, OfficeA can be the 'host' and invite those users from OfficeB into our team (Let your Teams users chat and communicate with users in another Teams organization). Has anyone tried this?
  2. I created a new team as a test, but it has ended up creating a new group, email address, etc. associated with that team. What is the purpose of this? I have not used O365 groups so am not familiar how this ties in with the rest of the ecosystem.
  3. After staff leave, we typically convert their mailboxes to shared mailboxes. They are hidden from the global address books, but for some reason they show up on Microsoft Teams. Is there any way to prevent this? We need to keep the user accounts active in order to maintain the shared mailboxes, but would prefer not to have all these names appear in the user list for teams.

Apologies for lumping a few into one, but very much appreciate anyone who can help.

 

Thanks,

 

Ben

Really appreciate everyone's help with various areas. Unfortunately I can only mark one post as the best response, and Steven's checklist was what finally got it working. Hopefully the likes also make a difference! Thanks again.
