M365 Changelog: SharePoint - New List Templates with Approvals

Rabia Noureen


MC525660 – Microsoft is introducing two new list templates with the Approvals app integration. With this change, Microsoft Lists templates, specifically Travel Requests with approvals and Content Scheduler with approvals, will begin to leverage integration with the Approvals app in Microsoft Teams.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 100502

When this will happen:

Targeted Release: Microsoft will begin rolling out in early March 2023 and expect to complete rollout by late March 2023.

Standard Release: Microsoft will begin rolling out in early May 2023 and expect to complete rollout by mid-May 2023.

How this will affect your organization:

In a new list created using either of these two templates, users can create a list item and submit it for approval by creating an approval request and specifying the approver, the request will appear in the Approvals app in Teams or can be approved directly within the list. Once approved, the list item status is updated. 

The new list templates will automatically appear on the Create list from the template screen. This is an optional feature that users can leverage by using one of the two new list templates.
