Create New Microsoft Teams


AgriLife IT requires all Microsoft Teams creation requests to go through AgriLife People for the following reasons:

  1. Microsoft Teams are not limitless and need to be managed within the AgriLife Office 365 tenant
  2. AgriLife People manages and tracks how many Teams are active, who requested them, and the purpose of each Team
  3. Team owners are responsible for managing membership, data, data types, and who has access to data within each Team, and Teams management is easily performed in AgriLife People
  4. AgriLife People allows AgriLife IT to assure IT security and data management requirements are being met to assure your data is protected and IT security is maintained

This task requires approval from the immediate supervisor listed for you in AgriLife People.
While the request process in ALP only takes 4 minutes, the actual time from request submission to the creation of your team will depend on how long it takes your supervisor to approve/deny your request.



Time needed: 4 minutes.
