New Feature: Teams

MC226759, Plan For Change, Published date: Nov 13, 2020
Feature update, User impact

We will be reorganizing the account and settings shown in the profile menu, in the application’s title bar, to facilitate account and tenant switching for users who have been invited as a Guest in another organization, or who are using Teams with a work/school and a personal account side-by-side.Key Points:

  • Timing:
  • Standard release: Available mid-November
  • GCC: Available early December
  • Roll-out: tenant level
  • Action: review and assess

How this will affect your organization:

We are moving the ability to switch Accounts & Orgs to the second level menu — users can click the Accounts & Orgs menu item to see their accounts or organizations they have access to. 

Note: this change only impacts users who have been invited as a Guest in another organization, or who are using Teams with a work/school and a personal account side-by-side. We are working on more changes in this space which should happen in early Q1 CY21 and will be announced through Message Center.
