In Microsoft Teams, is there a way to temporarily close or disable or hide a Team from all its members and owners, and then bring it back a couple months later without losing any content and without having to readmit all the members one by one?
I “own” a Team with over a hundred members and hundreds of files and other items stored in it. For legal reasons we have to make it unavailable until after the Inauguration. One way I can do it is to write down who all the members are, then remove them all, then in a couple months I add them back into the Team one by one. I would like to avoid that because it’s a large number of people to add, but if that’s what I have to do, then that’s what I have to do.
However if there is a way to avoid that, I want to know about it before I go ripping everybody out.
We have an IT department that is supposed to be able to help with this sort of thing, but so far they’re just giving me the runaround. The biggest success I have been able to get is that they created a Team for me named [not applicable]. It’s just been a comedy of errors. Now I’m running out of time; we will be in some legal jeopardy soon, I only have 2 work days left now.
