Enable Teams in your organization

Important

The new Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center is here! Starting in March 2018, we've been gradually migrating settings to it from both the current Skype for Business admin center and the Microsoft Teams experience in the Office 365 admin center. If a setting has been migrated, you'll see a notification and then be directed to the setting's location in the new Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center. For more information, see Manage Teams during the transition to the new Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center.

By default, Teams is turned on for all organizations. If you used Teams during the preview period, the setting stays the same as what you set during your Teams preview.

As an administrator for your organization, you can assign user licenses to control individual access to Teams, and you can allow or block what content sources can be used in Teams. See Manage Microsoft Teams features in your Office 365 organization or Admin settings for apps in Microsoft Teams for more information.

To learn more about managing individual licenses, read Office 365 licensing for Microsoft Teams.

Turn Teams on or off for your entire organization

Note

Tenant-level control for Teams has been removed (effective August 2018). Control access to Teams in your organization with user-level licensing. To learn more, see Manage user access to Microsoft Teams.
