Restricting users from creating groups / teams

Because it's so easy for users to create Office 365 Groups, you aren't inundated with requests to create them on behalf of other people. Depending on your business, however, you might want to control who has the ability to create groups.

This article explains how to disable the ability to create groups in all Office 365 services that use groups:

  • Outlook

  • SharePoint

  • Yammer

  • Microsoft Teams: Both admins and users won't be able to create teams.

  • StaffHub: Both admins and managers won't be able to create teams.

  • Planner: Users won't be able to create a plan.

  • PowerBI
