As you may already know, you can use Teams with Personal Accounts (aka Microsoft Account) instead of business accounts to communicate with friends and family members (see https://t.co/ycs5PvlUYO).
Well, Teams administrators can now allow (default) or block communication between their business accounts and Teams Personal contact.
This settings does not impact the configuration for Skype accounts.
This settings can be managed with both the Teams administration portal (https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/) or PowerShell (don’t forget you now also have the Cloud Shell experience in Teams administration portal – https://t.co/e3Sytzzo5d)
From the Teams administration portal, access the Users\External Access blade to turn on (default)/off the Teams accounts not managed by an organization section
If you want to use PowerShell you will need to run the below commands to configure both settings
- Manage the communication with Teams Personal
Set-CsTenantFederationConfiguration –AllowTeamsConsumer $true (or $false)
- Manage the communication initiated by Teams Personal
Set-CsTenantFederationConfiguration –AllowTeamsConsumerInbound $true (or $false)
