Microsoft Teams/File Storage Request

Drake ITS supports several different tools to allow for shared file storage and collaboration. Please use this request if you need a new Microsoft Team (which combines tools and resources including group chat and file sharing into one location using the Microsoft 365 platform) or if your course requires shared file storage within Drake‚Äôs Virtual Apps and Desktops environment or from Drake computer labs. 

NOTE: If you're a faculty member looking to use collaboration, chat, and file sharing in your online courses, please start by reviewing Preparing for Distance Teaching and Advising (Best Practices). If you need further assistance, please submit a Custom Learning Technology Consultation or Session request.

What to Expect

You will be contacted by ITS staff within two business days to discuss next steps for your request. ITS will help identify the best file storage and collaboration option for your needs.


Depending on your request type, you will be asked to provide the below information:

  • Is this a new Microsoft Team or shared file storage location? Or a change to an existing one?
  • Name/Type of group or shared file storage
  • Purpose of Microsoft Team or shared file storage
