I want to give the Teams setup in my Org a once over.

 

Is there a pdf or website with a specific list of what not to do etc.

 

We are just trying to double check we are set up as far as possible from a Best Practices scenario.

 

Thoughts?

@Jeremy_Heath Hello! I understand what you're looking for but from a "security vs end-user perspective" it's probably up to the business requirements. Such as compliance, regulations and policies as well. Anyway, here's an official best practice for organizing teams in Microsoft Teams https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/best-practices-organizing

 

Probably not what you requested but it's something. I'm sure a search will give you several hits on best practice scenarios.

Hi again, I had already had a look at that.

 

I don't need anything with channels etc as ours is limited to 2 channels which don't really get used our lads tend to just schedule meetings and then do voice calls. 

 

We are a Slack using company for our day-to-day chat.

 

Its mainly just something to read up on what should be turned on/off and why. 

 

Just trying to not have any stupid risks with teams.

 

Thanks again for the help

@Jeremy_Heath Well, I would at least go through the external access and guest settings.

 

External access in Teams

Guest access in Teams

 

File permissions for members and guests reflect whatever the admin has set
