Teams Mobile Feature updates for iOS

There are two handy features for the mobile client coming out quite soon. The first one is a better integration on the file storage integration. File-picker will soon (if not already for you) enable you to select different locations to attach files from. On my personal device, I can now pick from OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. This feature should be rolling out to most tenants already The second feature coming out is the capability to hide (or show) Teams calls in the native iOS call log. I am looking forward to this as I have more than once accidentally called someone back with the wrong modality when I'm not in the office and not on Wi-Fi. Be aware that calls made prior to turning this feature off (removing calls from the call log). Already placed calls will remain in the list. The setting only applies to new calls. This last feature should be rolling out in September .

Sensitivity labels in Teams

A new feature for Sensitivity labels in Azure AD will soon be available to Teams, and can really ensure guests are not invited accidentally into a team with internal or sensitive information.

The feature behind this is currently in preview and can be found described on this page. After the preview has been enabled, a new option appears when labels are created (I have not discovered a way to update existing labels, but I'm hoping this will be a possibility once the feature goes into GA).

By not selecting the highlighted option, it suddenly becomes "impossible" to invite guests to the Team, the site or the group in question.

Please note the current defaults on the image was to not to allow any guests, and the section on managed devices was to block all non-compliant. Be careful not to set policies that could possibly block users from doing their job.

Once the label has been created, it can must be published before group creators have the labels available to them. Existing groups and teams can also have this label added once it is available.

This addition, described as road-map item 57275, is a most welcomed one for my customers who are concerned about the accidental addition of guests into groups or teams where they have sensitive information stored.

The feature requires Azure AD P1 licenses. It is already rolling out, and should be completed by the end of this year according to a message in the O365 admin portal last week.
