Did you include teams with office?  and install office first?  I imagine teams needs to see outlook installed to install all the bits it needs for integration.  Another option might be to include office as a prerequiste layer when creating a teams layer.

I did try all of those options. It appears the issue was that we had installed the 64-bit version of Teams with one of the recent updates, but Office was still at 32-bit. When we reinstalled with 32-bit Teams, the functionality returned. Thank you for the assistance!

Follow the citrix doc on installing teams.  There is a specific item in there about portica because you are not installing where there is a vda so look for that in the docs.

Thank you for the reply. Our Teams layer is created and working. However, we do not see presence icons in Outlook. The option to create Teams meeting is there, just no status bubbles next to contacts in email. The option to "Display online status next to name" is checked but greyed out in Outlook.

What Rob said - you need to make sure that your O365 layer is a prerequisite when creating your Teams layer, otherwise that won't work. Kasper Johansen wrote a nice article on Teams in Citrix: https://virtualwarlock.net/microsoft-teams-in-citrix/


For presence to work properly, you need to load Teams and Outlook, close both, and then then load both again (assuming you have Teams set as your IM presence). Painfully stupid, but this is Microsoft.
