We are happy to announce the availability of additional Site Script Actions for SharePoint Online Site Designs and Site Scripts. These new actions will enable you to further configure automatically the newly created site collections for your employees and will reduce the requirements of having external services integrated with the provisioning process. We will keep on introducing new Site Script Actions also in future, so please keep the feedback coming, so that we can address also your requirements.
