In this episode, we discuss Microsoft Teams 5th anniversary, how we got here, and Microsoft Teams' most impactful things.

In this episode, the team discusses upcoming changes in M365 that will break your configuration if you don't act upon them.

  • Microsoft Teams Powershell Cmdlets for number management
  • Microsoft Teams SBC Direct Routing - Changes
  • Microsoft Teams Meeting recording expiration policy
  • IE 11 Expiration
  • Microsoft Exchange - Plus Addressing
  • Microsoft Exchange - API Retirements
  • Microsoft Exchange - Anti-Malware policy - Quarantine notifications for recipient

**Update**

If you have a Direct Routing as a Service (DRaaS) user with a DID for which you need to remove that DID, you must run the Remove-CsPhoneNumberAssignment cmdlet for that user and then renenable them for EnterpriseVoice using Set-CsPhoneNumberAssignment -EnterpriseVoiceEnabled $True

This enables EV without assigning a DID which would be useful for users that don't require a DID or need to be an Agent in a Call Queue for example.

Throttling

Teams:

  • Chat read receipts disabled in some regions, huge load on chat backend service
  • Azure voicemail Service - not playing greetings at times
  • Call Queues and Auto Attendants failing to receive calls
  • To best support our Microsoft 365 customers worldwide and accommodate new growth and demand during these unprecedented times, we're making temporary adjustments to select non-essential capabilities. We do not expect these changes to have a significant impact on the end-users experience but wanted to make you aware.
  • Examples of changes we may make include:
    • How often we check for presence
    • The interval in which we show when the other party is typing
    • Video resolution

OneNote:

  • OneNote in Teams will be read-only for commercial tenants, excluding EDU. Users can go to OneNote for the web for editing.
  • Download size and sync frequency of file attachments has been changed.
  • You can find details on these and other OneNote related updates as http://aka.ms/notesupdates.

SharePoint:

  • We are rescheduling specific backend operations to regional evening and weekend business hours. Impacted capabilities include migration, DLP and delays in file management after uploading a new file, video or image.
  • Reduced video resolution for playback videos.

Stream:

  • People timeline has been disabled for newly uploaded videos. Pre-existing videos will not be impacted.
  • Meeting recording video resolution adjusted to 720p
