Hi All,

As MSP we noticed that all freshly created tenants have already been configured into Teams only mode. So I'm curious now how it will reflect the migration from Skype for Business and implementing Hybrid mode?

According to the documentation, we should still have three modes, but we see only one last stage now when we create a new tenant and open the Teams portal there.

Prior to the retirement of Skype for Business Online, hybrid organizations could consist of three basic types of users:
On-premises users (who may or may not use Teams, but not in Teams Only mode)
Online users with any coexistence mode other than TeamsOnly
TeamsOnly users.

So the question is, how we will proceed with the hybrid mode for S4B in late 2021?
