Teams Bot rollout for wider organization

Copper Contributor

Hi All,

I am working on a bot for Teams for my organization that will be pinned to each user's account/app. 

I wanted to confirm the steps for deployment:

  1. Can the bot be pushed by Teams Admin to target accounts in an automated way? If yes, what are the options for smooth deployment?
  2. Can a user uninstall or disable/block this bot? If yes, is there any way to track/monitor/restrict this?                                                                                                                         

 Appreciate your help!

Yes, through a Teams App Setup Policy you can install the app, pin it to the users App Bar, and disable User Pinning so they can't remove it.

Even if you set the app to be pinned, users can still "block" the bot.

Is there a way to restrict users from blocking a bot?
