AZR304 - Provisioning and Templating Automation for Modern Sites, Office 365 Groups, and Teams

Peter Carson 

While Microsoft’s modern experience has really come together, there are so many ways to creates sites, groups, and Teams. In this session we will discuss how to standardize both the approach and the result with a request form (SPFx), approvals (Flow), and provisioning process (PowerShell, PnP, Azure Automation).

In this session we will leverage an open source solution with SPFx, Flow, and PowerShell to create a self-service request and approval process for Teams, Office 365 Groups, and SharePoint Team and Communication sites. You can use this as a starting point, customizing your forms, templates and process.

We're not done by just creating the Office 365 Groups and Teams. We'll show how you can combine the concept of channels across Teams, SharePoint, OneNote, Planner, and Streams to better organize how your staff collaborate. Through automation of tabs in Teams, sections in OneNote, plans in Planner, and channels in Streams, plus navigation in SharePoint to tie it all together, you'll see significant gains in your teams' productivity.
