The new Approvals app is rolling out now for Microsoft Teams. The app allows people to create, manage, and share approvals for items, such as expense reports and other requests. You can create items for approval from a chat or channel or directly from the Approvals app within Microsoft Teams. The feature is rolling out now, and according to Microsoft, should be generally available by mid-January (via OnMSFT).
When you submit an item for approval, those that need to approve it are notified. They can then read the details that are included as part of the request. If the approval request was sent within a chat or channel, approvers will see a message with boxes to approve or reject the request.
The Approvals app gathers all of the approval requests within one place. The app shows the requests alongside their status, source, requester, and approvers.
Approvals for Teams works with approvals from SharePoint, Power Automate, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and other supported platforms.
To use Approvals, you have to have an F3 license for Microsoft 365. F3 licenses are for frontline workers and include Office web and mobile apps, OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Stream, Microsoft Power Apps, and several other Microsoft services.
