Applies to: Microsoft Teams.
Each member in Teams has a role, and each one has various permissions.
Team owners control specific settings for the team. They append and delete members, create guests, edit team settings, and manage administrative tasks. There can be several owners in a team.
Members are the people in the team. They discuss with other team members in conversations. They can see and normally upload and amend files. They even do the regular forms of collaboration that the team owners have permitted.
Guests are people from beyond your organisation that a team owner invites, including partners or consultants to join the team. Guests have lesser capabilities than team members or team owners, although there’s still plenty they can do.
Note: File permissions for members and guests reflect whatever your admin has set in your SharePoint settings. These can only be changed by your admin.
