M365 Changelog: Updates in Microsoft Teams Allows Users to Create, Submit, and Review Employee Updates

MC394514 — Updates in Teams is an out-of-the-box app that enables people to create, submit, and review all their updates, check-ins, and reports in the flow of work. Whether those are recurring processes that happen on a regular basis, like a weekly update, store opening, or facility inspection, or in the moment updates that might be needed at any time, like a shift handoff, maintenance request, or incident report, Updates makes it easy for people to manage them all in one place. People can use the templates in the Updates app to get started and configure them for specific business or team needs.
