This article is to explain the reason you have received an email from Microsoft Power Platform PowerPlatfirstname.lastname@example.org stating 'your inactive Dataverse for Teams environment will be disabled', what this actually means and what action you need to take to prevent anything being deactivated.
The email looks like the below picture and states that your inactive Dataverse for Teams environment will be disabled in seven, then in three days.
You have received this email as you are an owner of a Team that has at some point turned on or used an element of the Power Platform from within the Team. This could include a PowerBi report or a Power Automate flow that has been used in the Team or SharePoint site.
The reason for receiving this automated email is because the Power Platform element of your Team has been inactive for a long period of time. Therefore Microsoft are letting you know that the Power Platform environment will be disabled if no action is taken. The Team will not be disabled.
Whilst the email on the surface infers that if you do not take action your Team itself will be disabled, this is not the case. What it is saying is that if you do not take action the Power Platform environment connected to your Team will be disabled. This could be a Power BI report or a Power Automate flow that you have set up from your Teams or SharePoint environment.
