Ever since I started working with Microsoft Teams, I have missed the opportunity to easily, manually (and without complicated automation and lots of rules) let the owners themselves archive a team when it no longer needs to be active. (It is usually the owners themselves who have the best overview and control of their teams and thus know if and when to archive them.)

 

Today i read a very positive Twitter post from @Anne Michels where she wrote that it is now possible to archive Teams. Many of my customers have asked for this functionality for a long time and it will be a pleasure to inform them that this now will be possible


In order to make it easier for my customers i wrote a short and easy blog post with a step by step instruction and it might be useful for some of you as well. You will find it here: Do you want to archive a Team? This is how you do it!

The original post from Microsoft Support regarding this topic is found here: Archive or restore a team

 

Now I'm going to spend the rest of the day enjoying myself clearing up my list of teams :)

@Magnus Goksøyr,

1. Is this feature available by default to end user(owners)? I see that as owner for Team, I can archive my team and restore it.

2. Can Teams Admin or Global Admin disable this feature for end users, How?

3. Is it possible to Archive Channel?

1. Yes. Only the Owner(s) of the Team can Archive the Team.

2. As far as i know you cannot.

3. Not now. However You can vote for that functionality in this post in UserVoice

 

Regards, Magnus
