An integral part of Microsoft Teams is the ability to attend meetings and live events. The appointments for these event types are usually planned directly via the personal calendar in a Microsoft Teams client. The calendar also enables quick and easy participation in meetings.
Yes, you read that right. The title is not a question or suggestion, but a statement of fact: Your approach to Microsoft Teams governance is wrong.
Right now, you must be thinking I have some serious chutzpah to make such a statement, and you’d be correct – but that chutzpah is built on real-world experience working with organizations of all sizes and industries.

Hello from the bunker! I assume most of you will be reading this blog post from my future, and hopefully the world has returned to something closer to “normal”. By normal, I mean there isn’t a pandemic going on and people can leave their houses.
