A Guide To Using The Microsoft Teams Updates App

Contributor

Microsoft recently released an called the Updates App that is intended to allow organizations to digitize manual and paper-based data collection processes. The app allows users to submit custom forms or to submit one of the several prebuilt template forms. Users can also author their own custom forms and schedule them to post to users as a request for an update. The forms are actually Microsoft Forms that are exposed in Teams directly and can include text, date, and choice type questions. While the app does include workflow capabilities, is it rather basic. Lastly, the app does have a major limitation which is at the time of release you cannot submit attachments to forms which is a bit surprising given the intended user base.

 

If interested in learning how to use the app, I've published an in-depth guide accessible at the link below.
