Q. Any idea how folks are managing Teams Phones (desk phones). As the calendar now appears on the desk phone and anyone can walk up and see the calendar (subject line, attendees) is there an option to disable the calendar or you have to add a password/timeout to the desk phone?
A. Set a PIN for the user account on the phone.
Q. Another question about Teams desk phone, does Intune configuration policies take precedence over TAC policies, i.e. screen timeout lock, password requirement, etc?
A. The Intune Configuration Profiles do different things than the TAC Configuration Profiles. Most of the settings in the Intune Configuration Profiles will not work with our Teams devices. We do not recommend using them on the Teams devices. As specially anything having to do with passwords. Intune will try to push a password at the operating system level, which we can’t do on our Teams devices. We can only set a PIN number at the Teams App level on our devices
