Microsoft Teams Tip: Add Members to a Team

Share on

Members are an important part of any team. Once you have created a new team, you can add members immediately to begin collaborating within the one workplace. Alternatively, you have the option of adding members later, and Microsoft Teams has made this process fast and easy. It should be noted that adding members to a Team is not limited to our UTK organization; you can also add individuals outside of the UTK community as guests.

  1. Select the Teams icon in your left-hand Teams menu.
  2. Select the ellipsis (…) to the right of the Team’s name or the ellipsis in the upper right corner of the Team’s card.
  3. Select Add Member.
  4. Enter and select the name or email of the individual to be added. If you are adding someone outside of your organization, enter their email address.
  5. Select Add. If you are a Member of the Team rather than an Owner, you will select Send Request.

If you are the Owner of the team, the individual will be added immediately.

If you are a Member of the team, your request will be sent to the Owner for approval.
