** Be specific when naming your team to avoid duplication and confusion across teams and departments. Some names may be reserved for central departments for this reason. Adding a prefix or suffix related to your department or finding another pattern to help differentiate your team is recommended (e.g., ITS-Comm and Marketing).
All teams will automatically have a “-GRP” extension in their name. This cannot be changed.
