So is this actually working for anyone yet? It’s has rolled out...
10 Replies

Not yet - and I've enabled myself to be Teams only, set the rest of the Tenant to Islands mode....

It's not working for us either! Would like to hear ETA on this...

First is was supposed to be done before the end of mars (Q1), then we were promised "April update" now it's May and were are apparently waiting for everyone to get the Teams admin center (if that link works and you are admin you have it) before we get the promised features.

 

No clue how much longer this will take as they are still saying the same thing as they did in the beginning of April and it seems they do not want to tell us how much progress they have made or give us their own ETA.

Any update/response Microsoft people?

The Teams developers release things when they are ready and pass the required quality bars, the fact that something has missed its planned quarter is an indication that its had more difficulty than expected. I don't speak for Microsoft, but from what I've seen with the testing this will be getting out to everyone very soon now.

 

I'm sure we wouldn't want them to release with significant issues, or had releases delayed in order to hit a forecast date.

Of course releasing something that isn't working is not acceptable. The problem though is that they are not exactly open about things like this. A deadline just passes and it takes weeks without as much as a peep from Microsoft. We should not have to rely on things like "from what I've seen with the testing this will be getting out to everyone very soon now.".

A lot of people rely on these products and needs to be able to plan around new features (e.g. is a workaround needed or can we wait or when do we need to inform and educate users about this new feature). So rather than possibly telling us weeks after the fact they should be telling us about these things before they happen. This seems like a general pattern for MS as I have seen the same thing with the release notes as well https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Release-Notes/m-p/33319

You have an coexistence option for "Teams Only"? I only have "Islands" and "Skype for Business only" Is it still rolling out to tenants?

What happened when you selected teams only?
Any idea when we can expect this to be delivered now? Q1 was a little while ago...

Well, it works for some time now. I think i have tested this in May. But it is syncing slowly usually. If you change your status in Skype it can take a minute to sync to Teams.

Strange, it's not working for me.
