The team logo you use in Microsoft Teams plays an important role in defining your team’s identity. It can also make or break your team’s professional image.
That’s why you need to be very picky when selecting your team image. The good news is that you could always change it if you added an inappropriate or unprofessional image.
Keep in mind that only team owners are allowed to add a new team picture. Team members can only view the picture, but they can’t change it.
Before you edit anything, check for updates. If there’s a new Teams version available, install it and then change the picture. By making sure you’re running the latest app version, you reduce the chances of encountering technical glitches and bugs.
