Applies to: Microsoft Teams.


If you’re a team owner, you can adjoin someone to a team. If you’re not a team owner, you can send a request, and the team owner will accept or deny it.

This topic focuses on appending established members of your team’s organisation. If you want to insert someone who’s beyond your organisation, see Add guests to a team.
