Powell Teams allows IT to set up an agile and business-oriented governance, defining criteria for each Team template such as:
    • Naming rule and labels
    • External or internal, public, or private access rights
    • Number of owners and team members
    • Expiration and archiving
    • Approval process
    Powell Teams also enables the automation of many of Microsoft Teams' management tasks: reporting and recurrent review of rules, archiving teams, and improving the creation of teams.
