Microsoft Teams: Inviting a Guest to a Team

If you want to bring in a guest speaker to your class, see the directions for scheduling a Teams meeting with a guest speaker

  1. Open Microsoft Teams
  2. Click Teams on the menu on the left side of the screen

  3. Click the 3 dots in the upper-right corner of the team where you want to add the guest user

  4. Click Add Member. A pop-up with an address bar will appear 

  5. Type the email address of the guest you want to add in the address bar

  6. Press the 'Enter' key on your keyboard. The Add button will become purple.
  7. Click Add
    The guest will be sent an email notification stating they have been invited to join a Team. Please note that the guest will need to log in with a Microsoft account to have access (but the invitation email does not need to be sent to a Microsoft account).
