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!

Thanks, 

Abhilash

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.
