Howdy,

 

In our Global Policy, the setting for Discover Private Teams is Enabled.  I even disabled it, saved, and then re-enabled it, and saved again.

 

However, when I go into any Team and go under Manage Team | Settings  I don't have the Teams Discovery section where I'm supposed to be able to enable the ability for teams to be searchable according to this:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/manage-discovery-of-private-teams

 

Does anyone know why I wouldn't see that area under a team's settings?  Is there something else I need to turn on  in order to make it work?

That feature is not yet enabled! The policy has been there a while but not yet functional..

There’s no ETA for this but hopefully soon

@adam deltingerOh.  Well, that explains it.  I didn't notice the blurb that said it's a preview feature.  :(

 

Is there any way I can get our tenant setup to get preview features?  :)

 

@adam deltinger 

 

Is there any update on this. 

Got this question again today from a customer. 

 

They do not want public teams but private teams. 

But they need to be discoverable so users can request access. 

 

Is there a work around for this?
