Howdy,

 

We would like to force all our users to be creating Teams Meetings when they setup a meeting since we have more and more users who WFH on random days and things like that.  I know I can hide the New Meeting button manually for myself but is there any way to do that and push it down to all our users through Group Policy or anything like that?

 

Local installs of Office 365.

 

Thanks.

You should be able to do it via GPOs by disabling the corresponding UI controls. Here's a sample article that guides you over the process: https://www.slipstick.com/how-to-outlook/group-policy-disable-commands/
