Teams Real Simple with Pictures: Block Folder Creation and File Sync in a team

I'm back. It's been two months. And maybe one day I'll tell you all about it. But today isn't that day and I have about two hours to write this from start to finish given I like to be in and out on a Sunday night. So today I am going to return to files: and two requests I had last week which were reminiscent of my time on the Microsoft Tech Community. These are the ability to block the creation of folders in a Teams Files Tab and the ability to block the option to sync - and to be fair these both legit asks from one admin to another. First, the org admin asked to block folder creation as they only wanted to have one layer of files and didn't want the folder structure becoming too complex, with too many click throughs for their users. Secondly, they asked to block offline sync as they didn't want users to sync the files to their local machines. So, all in all, very reasonable. Of course, like many things I have written about previously on this blog this isn't a socratic exposition of why, or because we can doesn't mean we should. Here I am simply concerned with can we do it? and if so then then the ethics are for you to decide. So as I return to blogging, this isn't going to be the biggest blog you've ever seen, but I kinda need something to get going again after having a long break. Ok?
