In my last blog post, I showed you how to find inactive Microsoft Teams with GraphAPI and Azure Automation. I’ve blogged about a script that writes all inactive Microsoft 365 groups to a SharePoint Online list. In this blog post, I will show you, how to archive inactive Microsoft Teams with Azure Automation.
My solution uses an approval process by Microsoft Flow and a Azure Automation Account with a scheduled script to archive a Team. The script uses the GraphAPI endpoint.

In many projects I get the question about how to find inactive Microsoft Teams and how to deal with them. In this blog post, I show you how to find inactive Microsoft Teams with Azure Automation and GraphAPI. The script adds all inactive Teams or Microsoft 365 to a SharePoint Online list. In a second blog post, I will describe how to archive these inactive groups. Of course, Microsoft offers a built-in solution for these scenarios. But perhaps the solution doesn’t fit to 100% to your business needs and then an own solution comes into the game.

Microsoft will start soon to rollout the new Microsoft Teams client 2.1 and a lot of customers are asking how to bulk deploy customized background images to their clients. In the past, we could just copy our images to a dedicated Microsoft Teams folder and then we were good to go. However, with the new Teams client, this mechanism no longer seems to work. If you copy your images to the appropriate folder, the images will not appear in Microsoft Teams when you try to select your wallpaper. This blog post will show you a way how to handle and solve it.

I’ve released a blog post about auto dialing with Microsoft Teams in 2020. A user has commented that the tool AutoHotkey in Version 2.0 is not working any longer with my script. The script is written for AutoHotkey Version 1.0 and the publisher of the software changed the script language in the latest version. Therefor the user asked if I could write an updated script. For me, enough reasons to write an updated blog post about how to auto dial a phone number with Microsoft Teams.

In this blog post, I will guide you through the steps to connect an Audiocodes MediaPack to Microsoft Teams. This allows you to use your analoge phones with Microsoft Teams. Of course, it is not the cheapest solution and there are other options. But with Microsoft Teams, you can easily control and manage an analoge phone. For example, you can restrict outbound call destinations by assigning a voice routing policy. Or you can monitor the call quality for analog phone.

In this blog post you will learn how to customize the music on hold in your Microsoft Teams environment. Microsoft announced this feature to be deployed in September 2022 and it allows us to define an own music on hold.
You archive this by configuring the new policy Hold Music in the Microsoft Teams Admin Center. Because it is a Microsoft Teams policy, you have the choice to set a new music on hold globally for all users or to define a music on hold for individual users.

In my first blog post about how to manage ownerless Microsoft Teams, I wrote about the standard tools by Microsoft. In this blog post, I will give you some inputs how to use the Microsoft Graph API in combination with SharePoint Online and Microsoft Flow to find ownerless M365 groups and to stay informed about ownerless teams or Microsoft 365 groups.
I will use the Graph API to get a report about the existing Microsoft Teams. This dataset is filtered on ownerless teams and is written to a SharePoint list. When stored in the SharePoint list, you can extend the solution by triggering a Microsoft Flow to notify the service desk, for example.

In this first blog post of two, I will cover how to manage ownerless Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 groups using board tools from Microsoft. Ownerless Microsoft 365 groups or teams are quite common and often seen in the wild.
A few weeks ago, Martina Grom tweeted about a new feature in the Microsoft Admin Center to find these ownerless Microsoft 365 groups or Microsoft Teams. It allows active members to be notified by mail when the team, or rather the Microsoft 365 group, no longer has an owner. This tweet brought this feature to my attention.
I will show you this option and an alternative way to notify someone about ownerless teams, like the IT staff for example, by a scripted solution in a second post.
