What’s New in Microsoft Teams – November

Microsoft Teams now adding new features, such as, new features like Quiet Hours, Teams based on dynamic group membership, org-wide team, scoped Exchange directory search, view organizational information from anywhere, schedule meeting on the go and know who is calling you via Microsoft Teams.

Quiet Hours, keep your work-life balance with quiet hours. Quiet Hours empowers you to control Team’s push notifications on your mobile device. You can mute push notifications at specific times during any day of the week, including weekends.

You can now create teams backed by Office 365 groups with a dynamic membership rule for which membership is managed dynamically based on user or device properties in Azure Active Directory. If a user or device satisfies a rule for a group, they are added as a member, and when they no longer satisfy the rule, they are removed.

Org-wide teams provides an automatic way for everyone in an organization with no more than 1,000 users to be a part of a single team for collaboration. Global administrators can now easily create a public team that adds every user in the organization and automatically keeps the membership up to date with Active Directory as users join and leave the organization.

You can now leverage Exchange address book policies to create virtual boundaries within your organization and control how users find and communicate with each other in Teams. This is useful if you manage an organization that has multiple entities within a single tenant, or if you manage a school and want to limit chat between faculty and students within the same class or grade.

Microsoft Teams makes it easy for you to understand in which team or department people are. You can now also leverage the Teams mobile app to search for a colleague in the organizational chart or find it directly from their contact card.

You can now schedule Teams meetings from your mobile device and invite people who are part of the organization (including guests) via the Microsoft Teams app for iOS and Android. Additionally, you will also be able to schedule channel meetings soon.

If you have a Teams phone number saved in your device contacts, you will now see their name appear when they call you via Teams. This requires a Phone System license and permission to access your device contacts.
