Teams: Management

Microsoft is also introducing new management capabilities for Teams meeting rooms at Ignite 2020. The new capabilities, available in the Teams Admin Center, will include an “improved portal experience” when it comes to management of meeting and calling devices--such as Teams phones and displays, as well as Teams Rooms devices.

Among the new management features are secure delegation--which can be provided to Microsoft partner or admin role--and the addition of alerts for device health monitoring to enable faster troubleshooting. Meanwhile, for customers of the Microsoft Teams Rooms Premium service, new monitoring capabilities coming by the end of 2020 will include firmware update management and security monitoring.
