Did you know: Microsoft introduced app setup policies to manage 1st and 3rd party apps and will be enhancing this functionality to now allow users to pin their favorite apps to their Teams app bar beginning at the end of January 2020 with a completion date by the end of February.
How does this affect me?
– Users will be able to customize the left rail App Bar in their Teams clients should you choose to leave the feature enabled.
– This feature applies to all Teams clients, mobile and desktop.
– Your users will be able to override your pinned apps settings, if you have customized the left rail.
Note: that this update does not change any policy setting, only the user experience.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
– This feature ships On by default so you will want to review your settings to ensure they are appropriate for the experience you require.
If you wish to turn this feature Off, visit Teams Setup policies in the Microsoft Teams admin center.
Change the “Allow user pinning” toggle from On to Off.
