Provisioning an Office 365 group with an approval flow and Azure functions-part 3

This article describes the workflow for the group provisioning process by using the Azure function from part two in combination with PowerApps, SharePoint Online and Flow to enable a good user experience.

Provisioning an Office 365 group with an approval flow and Azure functions-part 1

Office 365 groups span over various Office 365 services and provide a great way for collaborating. By default, every user can create an Office 365 group.

In real world environments, organizations usually want to restrict the group provisioning so that IT can control the wild growth of groups.
