With all the hype with video chat and the customization of Teams now I figured a quick blog post of the “How-To” would be cool.
There are two ways you can do this, the first way is if the option has not made it out to your tenant yet. Get your custom picture and upload to %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds then you can create a meet now to test.
Meet now can simply be created by going to the calendar tab –> Meet now in the top right
Once that is done you can click on the 3 … (More Action) Select “show Background effects” In the list you should see you custom background. Select it and you are all set.
Now, If your tenant has the latest update you can do the same as above but simply upload your custom background by selecting the “Upload Image” button.
Get-informationbarrierpolicy to see a list of our policies we defined:
In this example the
Guid from running the above cmdlet is 15912fe7-0dd5-4b90-b3e0-4b94168cb63e so
we will run:
-Identity 15912fe7-0dd5-4b90-b3e0-4b94168cb63e -State Active
Then you must also
run this same cmdlet for the other segment we created using its guid.
Now that we have
defined our two segments you must run
the following cmdlet to “start” the policy:
At this point you should be all setup.
However, After approximately a half hour, policies are applied, user by
user, for your organization. If your organization is large, it can take 24
hours (or more) for this process to complete. (As a general guideline, it takes
about an hour to process 5,000 user accounts.)
