Microsoft Teams: New Naming Policy

Share on

On Thursday, August 17, 2023, OIT will configure a naming policy that will apply to all Microsoft Teams. When introducing Office 365 Groups, OIT set up a naming policy that added a “UT_” in front of the Group name.  This naming convention was done to prevent groups Group names from conflicting with a NetID.

To match the Office 365 Group policy and prevent name conflicts, OIT will implement a new naming policy for Teams that will add the “UT_” prefix to the Team name. This policy will apply to both new and existing Teams. However, for existing Teams, this policy will only be noticeable if you edit the name of an existing Team after the policy is in place.
