As Microsoft mentions Notebook tabs in their documentation, they also outline that configuration for these kind of tabs are not supported by default.

But… Nico wouldn’t be Nico if he didn’t find a solution to this. So we’d love to share this with you. We start by explaining the difficulty, to end with a working Powershell script to add a Notebook tab to your Team.

Microsoft Lists – Your smart information tracking app in Microsoft 365

Build 2020 brought a lot of Microsoft 365 news and announcements for businesses and developers – including the first disclosure of Microsoft Lists. We are pleased to share our vision for Lists – to highlight how you use it to track issues, manage inventory, build out event agendas, report status, manage FAQs, and more.

Microsoft Lists is a Microsoft 365 app that helps you track information and organize your work. Lists are simple, smart, and flexible, so you can stay on top of what matters most to your team. Track issues, assets, routines, contacts, inventory and more using customizable views and smart rules and alerts to keep everyone in sync. With ready-made templates, you can quickly start lists online, on our new mobile app, and directly from within Microsoft Teams. And because it is part of Microsoft 365, you can rely on enterprise-grade security and compliance.

Microsoft Teams – Governance, key to success

Microsoft Teams has been quickly growning from a multifunctional communication platform to an essential tool for today’s modern workplace.

However, managing a Microsoft Teams environment for your entire organisation is far from an easy task. To ensure that you can prevent sprawl, keep internal data safe, and make everything work as efficiently as possible for your end users, some serious control measures are required.
