Microsoft Teams: Launch of self-service teams creation

1:41PM, 14 April 2021

In Microsoft Teams, teams are groups of people brought together for work, projects, or common interests. From Friday 16 April 2021 staff and post-graduate researchers will be able to create a team via the Microsoft Teams App 

Benefits:  

  • Self-service - create your own team in minutes 
  • Easily manage settings for your team 

Further guidance to consider before creating a team can be found on the Microsoft Teams webpages , this includes: 

  • Loughborough University naming conventions. Prefix your team name with a school, department, programme, project or similar short code: e.g. ITS-Project X 
  • Team types. Loughborough University commonly use Class type teams for teaching and Other for all other cases. Once a team is created this cannot be changed. 
  • Your responsibilities as a team owner  

Note:Module Teams are automatically created and updated based on a data feed from Loughborough University Student Information so care should be taken if using module codes in team names
