To get started you wil first need to install the Microsoft Teams Powershell module. You can do this by using the following command:

    Install-Module -Name MicrosoftTeams

install-module MicrosoftTeams

Loading module

Once you have installed a module on your system, you will likely want to import the module in order to use it. Importing is the process that loads the module into active memory, so that a user can access that module in their PowerShell session. You can use the following cmdlet te import the MicrosoftTeams module.

    Import-Module MicrosoftTeams


After installing the module we need to set up a connection to your Office 365 tenant, using the following command:



When you are finished you can use the following command to shut down the connection:


Check module version

Check your Microsoft Teams module version:

Upgrade module

Upgrade your Microsoft Teams module by the following cmdlet:

    Update-Module Microsoft Teams

If this consult in a error message, you can add the -force parameter to install. /
