Message Summary

In the SharePoint admin center, the Active sites page will provide new information: 

  • The “Created from” column will show the apps that were used to create sites.
  • The “Teams” column will show which sites are connected to Microsoft Teams.

In addition, you will have a new built-in view, “Sites connected to Teams,” which lists all the sites in your organization that are connected to Microsoft Teams. The “Created from” and “Teams” information will also be available in the details panel when you select an individual site.

We will start rolling out this feature in early June and expect to complete the roll out by the end of June.

How this will affect your organization:

These changes affect the Active sites page of the SharePoint admin center, which is available to global admins, SharePoint admin, and Global Readers in your organization.
