One to watch out for as an admin. Previously “Private” Microsoft Teams did not appear in the Add Team / Suggested Teams / Search here:

Starting March 23, 2018, private teams will be searchable in Microsoft Teams. I think this makes sense, as it makes them more discoverable and Teams sprawl is 100% real. If a user requests to join a private team, the team owner will receive a notification and can approve or deny the request directly in Teams.

However, it might be worth checking that there are no private teams in your tenant with names or descriptions that people do not want to be public. If there is a Team called “Secret Management Buyout of Contso”, now might be a good time to rename that Team Smile

 

If you wish to hide a private team or group, Office 365 admins can use the Set-UnifiedGroup PowerShell cmdlet to hide specific groups or teams (in Outlook, Outlook Web App, and Microsoft Teams). Specifically, use the HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled parameter, which you can apply to individual groups.

Mmm...I have definitively to test this :) and I think this is a must have feature that finally is coming to Teams

I like it. However, I think it should be a different setting to disable the Team from showing up because I don't want Office 365 group e-mails being used for Teams. So if I hide that e-mail they won't be able to search for Teams, so that alone I think needs reconsidered.

Thanks for sharing this. I dont see a problem with this as long as there is a way to keep private teams private.

 

BTW - are these advisories only available to certain groups or MVP's? I did not see this on the roadmap or release notes.

 

Thanks!

It's on our Office 365 admin message center, it's for everyone.

I know this stretches just outside of Teams so please point me to the right place if it cannot be answered.

Private Teams are becoming discoverable in the Teams UI, however I assume that this means that Teams group sites will not be discoverable in SharePoint Online as they will still be security trimmed based on SharePoint permissions?

 

I will test this when it comes out next week but if there is any prior knowledge then this would be good to know. Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure they pulled this change and it’s not happening. Even if it does it will not affect Sharepoint sites they us their own security not group security so you won’t see then listed.
Highlighted
Just as I thought so thanks for the response.

Is it possible to disable private group chats all together for an organization?

Highlighted

@Simeon Grigorovich Yes, you can set a messaging policy to disable -AllowUserChat either by powershell ...

… or through the new Teams Admin Portal at https://admin.teams.microsoft.com

@Steven Collier thanks for inadvertently helping me. Interestingly the Teams Admin Portal is now available to me via the URL but not yet via the Admin Center. Good to have access to this at last! 🙌🏻
Highlighted
yeah, I noticved my admin center earlier this week was working via URL as well, but not yet showing on Teams saettings page.

Ironic that they are afraid of finding really private Teams with this new feature: they are still always visible in the "Discover" option of Office Groups on Outlook Online!

Highlighted

I agree that Teams need to be discoverable in Teams, but hidden as O365 Groups. These are two different modes of visibility.

We are still not able to search for private MS teams, Believe it has been rolled out to all tenants?

And there is nothing we need to setup/configure so as to get private ms teams to be searchable?

Hi Devendra - If you scroll up to Sam Cosby's post, you'll see the info about the change having been pulled. Private teams are not searchable in Teams.

I think it's terrible. A Team is 'private' for a reason.
