📙 Tutorial: How to create and manage Microsoft Teams via PowerShell?

The Microsoft Teams PowerShell-module provides the ability to run scripts or modify policies through the command line interface of the Administrator panel.

Sometimes this is a practical way to quickly make changes all at once or adjust settings not yet available in the graphical interface or through the Teams control panel https://admin.teams.microsoft.com. These bulk changes can be useful if you want to quickly modify large numbers of settings or access settings that are not yet fully available in the graphical interface.

What is PowerShell?

PowerShell is a command-line interpreter and environment developed by Microsoft for configuring and managing systems. It is based on the .NET Framework and provides a comprehensive set of cmdlets (command-line tools) for performing a wide variety of tasks, such as managing user accounts, installing software, and managing network configurations. PowerShell is part of several Microsoft products, including Windows and Office 365, and can be used by system administrators and other advanced users.
