Hi,

 

I am developing a provisioning process for MS teams, we can never let users create Teams from within application as it would mean they have rights to create O365 groups. 

 

So that I need to remove or hide the Join or Create Team link from Microsoft Teams.

 

Regards

No, there is currently no way to remove or hide this button!

I’d suggest restricting group creation overall if you are doing a custom provisioning workflow!

If you restrict as per Adam, the button still shows, however, you actually can't create a Team, you can only join as the create option will not show if you have restricted group creation.

Thanks for clarifying Chris!

Keep in mind restricting group creation also applies to other workloads utilizing Office 365 groups like SP Team sites, Planner, Stream etc..
There is also a AAD P1 licensing requirement for those users allowed to create groups (Teams) ! It’s all in the link

@adam deltinger Thank you

Restricting group creation will not providing solution

 

For Example: We create a new Team using workflow and assign one new user as Owner, then the 'Join or create a team' link enabled for him, now the new team owner can able to create any number of new teams without following the workflow process.

When you restrict group creation you have to assign a group that is designated as the people who can assign groups. You create a workflow that will add that user to that group then they will be able to create groups / teams going forward.

Is it still the same behaviour in Teams? Still no possibility to just remove the icon "Join a Team" in the Microsoft Teams user interface? I think there are many customers out there, who just want to remove this little button and thus give the user no opportunity to create a Team like Microsoft thinks is the best way. Do you still have to intervene in the whole groups creation process of O365? Or is there maybe a way to just remove the button.
