Monitor Microsoft Teams Channel Creation Using Flow

For some organizations, it makes sense to limit who can create Microsoft Teams channels. By default every team member can add as many channels to a team as they want up to the maximum of 200 channels per team. This has the possibility to lead to a lot of content duplication and confusion about where to collaborate. If a team owner chooses to prevent team members from creating channels, it is important that they have a quick way to request a channel or else user adoption will suffer.

This video and these instructions will teach you how to create a Flow that uses SharePoint for team members to request a channel, then sends an approval to the team owner, and creates the channel if it is approved.



For automate request to join a channel, approve them, and add them to the channel.

and I hope it, about guest.


The guest is someone who not in our tenat.


My scenario :

  • Show a join request form with Microsoft Forms,
  • When a new request submit,
  • Send a approve request to owner,
  • and after approve, Add them as Guest member to the channel. 
  • and Send a greeting message to them.
  • and Send a channel statistics to the owner.

Yoshihirok, as of right now you cannot add a person to a channel, you have to add the person to the team that the channel is part of. Access is not set at the channel level.

Thank you @melihubb for your reply.

I hope to add features of Microsoft Flow's Microsoft Teams action.

Microsoft Teams will have some features as Microsoft Graph

So, I hope these features on action of Microsoft Flow also.
