M365 Changelog: SharePoint admin center – Updates for site creation settings
MC427171 – With this update you will have more control over whether users can create sites in your organization. Microsoft is introducing an additional layer of control that will provide more granular decisions over what mechanisms sites can be created from by users.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93427
When this will happen:
Targeted Release: This will begin rolling out in early September.
Standard: will begin rolling out in late-September and complete in early October.
How this will affect your organization:
When configuring the site creation settings, you will have a new option to control creation of sites in addition to the current option of showing the option to create sites. This appears in the site creation settings panel within the SharePoint admin center.
The current default option is ON by default, this will have both checkboxes checked as shown in the above image.
If you have customized your settings to disable site creation in your tenant, the nested checkbox will be unchecked while the top level will remain enabled.
What you need to do to prepare:
You do not need to do anything to prepare. Your changes to any other options in the Site creation panel won’t be affected.
