Understanding the Required Permissions
We request the minimum amount of access required for the app to function properly. Some of these permissions may appear excessive, such as Files.ReadWrite, but Microsoft has created specific permissions for all types of data, which is why we require these additional permissions to ensure that the app has the appropriate access.
The permissions related to Groups, Channels, Teams, and profiles are used to access the names and IDs of these properties. This information is used to map our inboxes and send/read messages, as well as allowing customers to map the channels they need. We store this data so that customers can use it to map their inboxes.
The Files.ReadWrite.All permission is required to upload or fetch files and content related to MS Teams. We use it specifically to access or upload pictures (MMS) from or in MS Teams.
