Remove Watcher Access to Team Rooms

Overview 

Once Team Room Watcher Access is granted to a manager by a Company Administrator or by the team owner, it can be removed by them easily using the Teams app.

There is also a set of Team Watchers that are assigned automatically and cannot be removed at all, those are the ones added because they are company administrators, other managers with direct contractors in the team, or those managers' direct managers.

 

Prerequisites

  • Must be Team Room Owner or Company Administrator

 

Solution

  1. Open the Teams app.
  2. Click on the Team Room name in the left column.

    Please notice that the names that don't have a trash icon next to them are the watchers that are added automatically and cannot be removed manually. They will be removed automatically if the condition is no longer met, that means that the company administrator role is removed, that he no longer had direct contractors on the team or the managers are no longer reporting to that manager.

  5. There will be no message and the manager will be removed immediately.
