Microsoft Teams PowerShell Module 0.9.6


Microsoft has updated the Microsoft Teams PowerShell module to 0.9.6


The available cmdlets themselves remain the same, but three are 3 changes

  • There is a change in how New-Team behaves. The New-Team –AddCreatorAsMember parameter has been removed.  In its place, there is an optional parameter -Owner.  You can use this –Owner parameter to specify the full userid (e.g. of the user you want to have own the team, if it’s not going to be the account running the cmdlets.
  • As an Office 365 global admin or Teams Service Admin, you can now edit settings on all teams, even if you don’t own them
  • The administrator account using this module no longer need to be assigned a Teams license. Which is handy for those that have separate administration accounts.
