Under Manage Profile Service page, in the People section, click Manage Policies. There is a policy "Auto Follow People from team".

May I know what is the definition of "Team" in this policy? In our farm, the users in the same "Division" (which around 100 users) are following each other. This "Division" is a custom properites we added. So I think this policy is not rely on user profile property to define a "team".

So what would be the "team" criteria?


What I have seen in SharePoint 2013 On premise is that you automatically follow people that have the same Manager as you in their User Profiles, so if you use AD sync it would be the reportsTo field from the AD that is used by default.
