Morning all, 

 

How do I set it so that teams is pinned on the left hand side? Currently I have to click on the 3 dots to get it open? I didn't have this in a previous business. 

 

Please see screenshot? How do I pin it near teams or calendar?

Hello, simply right-click on it and choose "pin" :)
Hi Christian, it doesn't allow me to do that, when I right click, nothing happens. Seems like a teams admin setting to me or a policy?

Aha, well in that case it could be restricted by policy and then you have to reach out to your IT admin. The option is called "Allow user pinning".

 

"Turn on or turn off Allow user pinning, depending on whether you want to let users personalize their app bar by pinning apps to it."

It's really strange because it's on...

It's on apparently. But is that policy also assigned to the user?
