Teams and OneDrive Updates for Microsoft 365

Microsoft Teams Approval App:
Microsoft has announced that the Approval Request app is now rolling out.  This app will be automatically installed in Teams for users.

The new app will come in handy for various tasks like obtaining approval for your expense report for example.  To get started, you can simply create an approval request via a chat or channel conversation as well as through the Approvals app. You can then specify the name of the request, assign its approver, insert additional information, add an attachment, and customize the response in accordance with your business requirements.
Teams will notify those who need to approve the request along with the details. For requests submitted via a chat or a channel, a message will be visible to approvers with options to approve or reject them.
All approval requests can be found within the corresponding tab of the Approvals app.  From there, you can see the requests’ status, source, creators, and approvers.
Microsoft Teams Recap
Reviewing what occurred with a Microsoft Teams meeting is about to become a lot easier. A new Meeting recap feature is on the way to Teams that will share a transcript, shared files, shared messages, and a recording of the meeting to participants. The feature is currently set to start rolling out the second half of this month.
Meeting recaps will appear in the Chat tab for participants of the meeting to check out.  People can also find out more about the meeting in the Details tab for each meeting.
OneDrive Shared Library
Microsoft is giving users the ability to create a special Shared Library to make it easier to collaborate.  Driven by Office 365 groups, the new shared library will appear immediately as a new content collaboration space for your team files.
