New security measures in place when creating Teams

On July 12, all new teams in the Microsoft Teams app should be created via a secure storage form. To help with this process, a “New Team” button will be added to the left menu, linking directly to the form.

This change helps safeguard new teams and their institutional data, while providing naming conventions and tools for storage owners and the IU community.
