How to archive teams using PowerShell

The Set-TeamArchivedState cmdlet helps you to archive a team and effectively freeze all team activities. Team admins and owners will, however, be able to add or remove members and also update their roles. You must unarchive an archived team to resume all the other user activities.


Set-TeamArchivedState -GroupId <String> -Archived <Boolean> [-SetSpoSiteReadOnlyForMembers <Boolean>] [<CommonParameters>]

Eg. PS C:\> Set-TeamArchivedState -GroupId 134r77j6-ol98-6t77-w145-90987i9l567y -Archived:$true

This cmdlet archives the group with the mentioned group ID.

Though PowerShell scripts generally help to get the work done, they can be complex, time-consuming, and error-prone. Looking for small errors like a misplaced colon or hyphen can be challenging. M365 Manager Plus helps simplify Microsoft Teams tasks by providing insightful reports and handy management options that don't require you to type a single PowerShell script.
