Powell Teams release April 2024

In our latest update, we're bringing significant enhancements to Powell Teams, focusing on two key areas to complete our SharePoint integration.

The release is planned for the week of the 24nd of April 2024.


Introducing tags for SharePoint sites 

Tags are widely used by our customers to associate metadata on their teams and organize their workspaces based on various scenarii. This feature has been requested a lot for SharePoint sites and will now be available for:

  • SharePoint governance templates
  • SharePoint sites (values visible when editing sites)
  • As refiners in user dashboards, reports, and directories with teams and SharePoint sites

It will help end users to easily find out their workspaces matter it's a team or a SharePoint site.

Administrators gain the ability to filter and organize workspaces in the back office, leveraging tags for a variety of scenarios to streamline tenant management.

API Update: We've updated the API signature for tag endpoints. If you're utilizing current endpoints, please contact us for details on the changes.

Revamped governance dashboard

The back office homepage transforms into a governance dashboard that now includes SharePoint insights.
The page will be arranged around the following key sections:

  • Directories access for teams, SharePoint sites, and users
  • Pending approval banner to highlight approval requests still pending an action
  • Governance scores on Teams and SharePoint sites. Those scores are related to governance recommendations visible on another page describing the best governance practices for each kind of workspace.
  • Tenant health overview with the reports (teams, sites, or users) administrators chose to pin on the page
  • Two cards showing a few metrics about campaigns and the future feature guest review

Other updates

  • Site storage maximum quota: A maximum storage quota will now be configurable at the governance template level to pre-set this information within the sites created with Powell Teams.
