As a domain admin you can control who can send IM in a specific team. The choices you have are

  • Any Member of the team can Send IM (default)
  • Domain Admins and Team Admins can Send IM
  • Only Domain Admins can Send IM

This is great feature for admins to share important announcements and news in a team. This team has no reply back capability so there is no distraction and noise caused with everyone replying back in a group chat. This feature is available to domain admins

Admins can set this setting from Admin Portal > Modules > Team > Chat Settings

You will see a message like this in the chat window if you’re a group member who can only receive messages but can’t reply back in the group.
