14 May Microsoft Teams: Custom Banner for Emergency Calling
Admins can now inform their users about emergency calling through a customizable disclaimer banner that will appear in the Calls app. Users will be able to acknowledge the message by clicking on the banner.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 93054
When this will happen:
This feature has been rolled out to Standard, GCC and GCCH
How this will affect your organization:
You will have the ability to add a custom banner in the tenant for users for E911 purposes. Users can dismiss the banner by acknowledging the message, and the banner will reappear when Teams is restarted.
What you need to do to prepare:
To enable this feature, you would set the Emergency service disclaimer under the Teams emergency calling policy and enter a string message to be displayed to users. This field is optional when setting up a custom policy, and the string field is limited to 250 characters.
Admins can enable the custom banner using PowerShell, until the feature is made available in Teams Admin center.
