If someone creates a new team, users get a message in their activity pane like "Mr. X added you to a new team [Teamname]".

We - however - let people first go through an approval process and in the end the team will be created by an App.

This results in a confusing message for users that looks like this:

 

[AppName] has added you to [TeamName]

I am wondering if there is any option to change this text if a new team/group is created via the GraphAPI in a client credential flow.

 

Any ideas?

Hi @David_Elsner Currently there is no Graph API to change the text of activity message. 
we recommend you to raise a UserVoice here if this needs to be consider as a future request.
