Microsoft Teams now supports dynamic groups but what does this mean? Dynamic groups are an Azure AD Premium (P1) feature that allows group membership to be automatically tied to AD attributes (i.e. users with a location of ‘London, New York or Seattle’) that will continuously sync as the membership changes over time. Dynamic group membership reduces the administrative overhead of adding and removing users.
Which is great for IT Administrator across the group.
How to create a dynamic group
Please follow the steps from here
Once you have created the group, every assigned member will receive an email stating they have joined the defined group
We already have a group (Office or Security) and would like to change its membership type to “Dynamic”
Of course you can do this from the Azure AD admin center. Please follow the steps from here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/users-groups-roles/groups-change-type
How do create a Microsoft Team with a Dynamic Group
Launch Microsoft Teams and click “Join or create a team”
Click “Create a team from an existing Office 365 Group”
Select the dynamic group you are an owner of and the group name will become the Team name.
Does this support syncing Security Groups (SGs)?
No, dynamic membership groups are different from SG/DL
How long does the dynamic group changes take to reflect in Teams?
This can take up to 2 hours after membership changes are reflected in Azure portal.
