I don't know if this is the right forum for this but I have just learned that, while the LookBook website indicates that only tenant admins are to be able to create sites using the templates, an E3 licensed user with no admin roles just created his own Comm site without any issue or assistance and I, as the SharePoint and TEAMS administrator had no idea he did so.
Our company has strict rules about who can create along with naming conventions, etc. to follow when creating and he was able to bypass ALL of it. I'm not faulting the user, I am faulting Microsoft's verbiage and/or security. Either the website is erroneous when it says only admins can create/use the templated or there is a security/management breach going on for this.
I am VERY concerned at what this means for our company: it will be Pandora's Box is a blink of an eye.
Please, would someone please explain what is going on and how I can stop this from being something anyone in my tenant can do? QUICK!
@Lisa Stebbins you are correct that sites created with the Look Book templates need tenant admin permissions(apart from those few education ones that don't). But a standard communications site with the basic sections and web parts can be built by any user, either from the far top left of the SharePoint homepage at https://capita.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/sharepoint.aspx
or by going to the following link: https://capita.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/CreateGroup.aspx
