📢 Update -Microsoft Teams IP Phones and Intune Enrollment

For customers who require desk phones and conference room phones to make and receive audio calls or join meetings, Microsoft Teams provides a growing portfolio of devices that can be purchased from our Teams Marketplace. For Teams phones including the Yealink T56A/T58A/CP960 and the Crestron Flex series IP phones that run on Android 5.x or later, there may be specific configurations that need to be enabled in the customer's tenant for the phones to successfully enroll into Intune.  

 

Allowing successful Intune enrollment for Android versions 5.x and up 

If all the following conditions below are true, you will need to enable a specific configuration setting in the Intune admin console to allow for a successful enrollment: 

  • You are deploying a Teams IP phone with Android OS version 5.x or later. 
  • You have connected your Intune tenant with managed Google Play in order to manage Android Enterprise devices. 
  • You have configured your enrollment restrictions such that Android work profile enrollment restrictions are applied to the end user account that you are using to enroll. 

The recommended deployment configuration is (only one of these two are necessary):  

  • Adjust your enrollment restrictions settings in Intune so that the user you are enrolling the IP phone is not targeted with Android work profile.  This approach is recommended if you are managing Android Enterprise work profile devices in the same Intune tenant as your Teams device. 
  • If you are not actively using Android Enterprise in your Intune tenant, you can remove the connection to managed Google Play following the directions here under "Disconnect your Android enterprise administrative account".  Disconnecting your Intune tenant from managed Google Play will disable Android Enterprise enrollment entirely for your tenant.  Therefore, this option is only recommended if you are not managing any Android Enterprise devices in your Intune tenant.     

We are actively pursuing a fix from the firmware to handle this enrollment flow. Once the fix has been published to the Microsoft Device Management solution and devices have been updated, neither of these workarounds would be necessary regardless of whether the three factors above are all true.

 

Device-based Exception via Intune 

Intune allows creating device compliance policies in the tenant for the Android-based devices accessing organizational data. These policies are applied to user accounts and currently do not provide the ability to distinguish device types on the same operating system (eg: Desk phones vs conventional mobile devices phones). Tenant administrators might need to provide exceptions to user accounts for Teams IP phones to complete sign in.

Turn off/ Hide Details panel/ Information Panel on modern SharePoint lists

Not always we require to show changes done by other which is a mandatory feature in SharePoint online.  What is details pane (aka. Information Pane)? Detail pane/ Information shows information regarding the document if you selected a one or its showing recent changes within a list or library. Follow link to Microsoft documentation about details pane. Bad news: Until Microsoft listen to User Voice , there is no straightforward way to enable disable this even you don't want. Good news: We could write a SharePoint framework extension to hack styles until Microsoft give us a permanent solution. How? I found this sample project (Inject CSS into modern SharePoint pages with React) which could reuse to our purpose.

Eliminate Duplicates in Microsoft Flow and Azure Logic Apps

There is no straight forward method or Microsoft Flow action  to eliminate values in a collection like Microsft Excel (as of March 2019). This little hack will help you to eliminate/ remove duplicates and create a collection of unique values. Sample scenario: Need to send daily summarized notification to assigned approved with pending approval items. Sample workflow: Initialize an array Iterate collection of data and append items that are not there in the filtered array Side note: This won't be an option to consider if you too concerned about the performance of the workflow but for the time being its an option to consider.
