Expect documentation to be reflect this change in the coming days. For more information, please have a look at this article.


After the installation of the application, Powell Governance will make automatically a first health check of your Microsoft Teams environment.  Depending your Microsoft Teams activity (number of teams, conversations , users, ...), the team scan can take few minutes to few hours.

Progressively the tenant health overview data and the reports will be updated but we recommend to wait the end of the full scan (when the progress bar will disappear) to have a complete overview of the tenant.



Note: to access your administrator dashboard you need to be a Powell Governance administrator and you can get access to hit from the homepage of Powell Governance
