Enhancements included in this release:

  • New Teams view that filters the sites list to only sites that are Teams connected.

  • The pivot includes a list of channel sites that are associated to the Teams connected site. This list will only include Private sites as of now and will expend to include other special sites in the future. Channel are view only and inherit properties from Teams that are managed in Teams admin center.
