The Skype for Business Online PowerShell module is not well liked. It works differently to other modules and has some oddities, including the ability to disconnect sessions after 60 seconds and fail to reconnect. The new Enable-CsOnlineSessionForReconnection helps to keep sessions going, so that’s one small but irritating oddity off what could be a long list.
The Get-SPOSite PowerShell cmdlet is used to fetch details about SharePoint Online sites. It works well, but some recent functionality upgrades means that script writers need to be more precise about how they use the cmdlet. Most scripts don’t need to process redirect sites or the sites belonging to Teams private channels, so why would you ask Get-SPOSite to fetch these sites?
Everyone’s PowerShell style is different. Here at Office365ITPros, we try and write code to help people understand what’s possible when working with Office 365.

The cmdlets and parameters are pretty straightforward for anyone used to working with Teams through PowerShell. Remember to read up and understand all about private channels before trying to work with them through PowerShell.
