Need Advice on using KACE SMA to deploy the new Teams desktop application

Looking for some direction on the best way to deploy the New Teams application with KACE. There seems to be multiple bulk deployment options so I'm wondering what Kace users have done successfully?

Hi, as of I know the best would be to use the teamsbootstrapper.exe to deploy teams. The easiest way would be to just add the EXE to the Teams Software record and run it with parameter -p. This downloads Teams from Microsoft and installs it. You can also find the new teams app in the software catalog. You need to go to the uncataloged tab and search for "MSTEAMS_CANARY.EXE" and add it to your software catalog. That would allow you to add the needed installer files to this record and deploy it with a managed install.

If you do not want to download the app to every client you can also download the MSIX file, ZIP both the EXE and MSIX and run the teamsbootstrapper.exe with parameters -p -o MSTeams-x64.MSIX.

Below a link for reference to the Mircosoft learn article that explains how the EXE works.

Hope that helps :)

Cheers Sven
