Why does a Microsoft 365 Application display "Approval required"?

Overview

The University of Idaho automatically blocks all applications which request permissions to access Microsoft 365, previously known as Office 365. This is done to enforce identity and security policies. Users will see an "Approval required" screen that asks for justification to allow permissions to the application.

Example

Resolution

Fill in the reason you are wanting to use the application and click on "Request approval". This will allow admins to review the access required and either approve or deny the request.

Note: Applications which require access to employee account information must go through the IT Governance Process to approve the application can store university owned data and will comply with technical controls to limit data loss. Employee data is subject to eDiscovery, records retention and federal and state law even if stored with third party services.
