The most obvious procedure in the departure of employees Is that they are removed from the Active Directory. But what about the teams or Office 365 groups they own? Think about owners of SharePoint pages or of teams within Microsoft Teams.

When an employee leaves the company, you don't want to be left with x-number of partially directionless teams and groups. Unfortunately, participants cannot add team members, let alone make changes, if they only have read rights.

If admin of a Office 365 tenant you want nothing more than the keep track. So when a colleague leaves you, you can easily find out which teams or groups he/she is the owner of. Only then you can take the necessary actions to appoint a new owner.
