Hi everyone,

 

i am just asking if this is a configuration change.

We are allowing employees to create Teams theirselves following a naming policy. If i want  to override the naming policy i create it with my Teams Admin account.

I have done this 20+ times. 

Now an employee of this org created team said that it is not possible to create a planner. 

And i saw that the owner is not added to the members (anymore?!).

Is that new or tried no one of my owner employees of the 20+ teams create a planner before?

 

best regards

Stephan

Good question! It used to be like that, the owner was put in as member as well. That changed since quite long though. Every doc says that the team owner is also a member but can do everything etc etc. But they are missing something as sometimes you have to be in the member field as well, even though you’re the owner. Saw a similiar post yesterday so you’re not alone.
