This blog will cover an example of a MS Teams provisioning process that was originally delivered for M365 California Jan ’21. The sessions were 30 minutes which covered enough time to discuss the entire process. This blog will contain a four videos which dive deeper on the steps during that sessions.

Setting up the SharePoint List

Setting up the Power Automate Flow

Extending the Flow with MS Graph & Azure Active Directory

Setting up the Power App custom list form and the SharePoint user interaction

This is just an example of one way to provision MS Teams sites and the steps involved in that process, it’s certainly not the only way. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know.

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ve done 2 more complicated implementations of this in a similar way but there are also products that do the same thing.

      The 2 bigger projects wanted to control how the teams are provisioning so they could be approved by an admin. I used Power Automate in 1 and built a custom SPFx webpart to do the provisioning in another to compare and at the time there were no Preview Flow controls for Teams. Ultimately they wanted to templatize the teams creation process, creating “Project” teams. After provisioning adding members, activating SharePoint features, joining sites to a hub, setting up teams. While most of this would be done in the Power Automate, many steps are done in an Azure Function that can do more. The Power Automate last step is to call the Azure Function to perform some of the site/teams manipulation.
