Once enabled, does Teams become an option in your license that can be enabled/disabled per user? Since Teams is deeply integrated with Skype, is a Skype license required?

 

Thank you.

Microsoft Teams is a separate service plan. You will be able to enable/disable it on a per-user basis via the Office 365 admin UI or PowerShell, as with other service plans.

Follow up question to that reply Dan; Does it default on or off for all users once the master Teams switch has been enabled? We'd like to test just within our IT team before letting the rest of the company on but don't know if enabling it globally means we'll be manually disabling it for 1000 people or if we will just have to enable it for the IT team...

Once enabled I see no option under individual user licensing to enable/disable so I suspect Teams would be enabled for the entire tenant. Use Office 365 Group restrictions to control Team creation

Hi Dan.

 

Ians post mentions that he cant see individual license enablement, is this by design?

As i also would like to enable the preview but only for a subset of users.

Is the service leveraging the 'Office First Release' group by any chance?

 

Thanks

Just a note that the per-user service plan capability will come in a future update to the admin portal, during the preview period. So @John Jensen that means that flipping the big tenant-level switch enables it for all users in the company, right now. When we have the per-user service plan switch, you can flip the big tenant switch to on, and then set the per-user switches (service plan setting) on or off as you prefer.

Thanks Dan!  Appreciate the response.

We're an EDU licensed school district.

 

Are there plans to allow us to access Teams in the future?

Highlighted

@Dan Stevenson If we have an EDU tenant, can we purchase and apply commercial licenses for users who want to trail it? Will this work?

Does this work as well, when most of your users only have exchange online licenses?

I don't see the option to enable teams as part of a service plan. Is it named differently?
Highlighted
It’s included in almost all! What do you have?
It should be banned Microsoft teams

Hoping Microsoft chimes in - Teams is enabled for the Tenant and all users have an E5 license. In the License for a user, Plans, everyone has a Skype for Business Online (Plan 2) ON or enabled. When we cut to Teams Only in our Coexistence Mode, will we need this S4B enabled?
