In certain scenarios, you can end up in a situation when you have a Team or a Microsoft 365 Group without an Owner. For example, when the employee leaves the organization. There is a way to prevent this. In this tutorial, I show you how.
Ownerless teams and Microsoft 365 Groups are a common problem in organizations that have adopted Office 365. These groups can be created by users without any oversight or control, often leading to confusion about who is responsible for managing the group. This can lead to a lack of organization, disorganization, and even security risks if the wrong people have access to sensitive information.
To avoid ownerless teams and Microsoft 365 Groups, it's important for organizations to set up guidelines around group creation and provide training on how to use them properly. Organizations should also establish clear roles and responsibilities with regards to who manages each team or group. Additionally, they should create policies that require certain types of content (such as confidential documents) only be shared within specific groups or channels rather than allowing open sharing across all groups. Finally, IT departments should consider implementing monitoring tools such as Azure Active Directory Audit Logs which can help detect activities related to creating new teams/groups so administrators can intervene when needed.
