I saw the deployment documentation but haven't found an answer to my question. If we deploy the msi file and install it on the computer for everybody. Do they need Admin rights afterwards to update it? I have seen that some ppl have installed it into to AppData and they can update. We don't want our users to give admin rights to update it but would let them do itself. What is the best deplyoment method?

Hello, no they don't need admin rights to update when using MSI installer.

You could use either https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install or https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/msi-deployment
