Microsoft recently announced a new app that will provide a framework to automate the team provisioning process based on core teams and channel options which are relevant to optimizing usage. This will enable faster response times for team requests and offer a wealth of personalization options for organizations to implement repeatable best practices on team collaboration.
The Request-A-Team app template produces forms for the collection of information such as business justification, access scope, and ownership. End users can then create teams from scratch, reuse existing internal teams, and/or take advantage of publicly available templates published by Microsoft.
Once requests for new teams are submitted, it is important to keep track of progress and to respond to those requests. The Request-a-team app template offers list dashboards (shown below) to keep everyone informed of changes. Approvers respond to requests either from the Approve requests tab or within preferred channels. These dashboards include an extra bonus feature for cloning an existing request and give approvers an alternate place to approve/deny requests.
