Teams - How to add an external Guest to a Team/Channel
Last Updated 3 years ago

Assuming Guest access has not been turned off for the Team, and Team members are allowed to invite Guests, the process is as follows:
  1. In the Teams app, select Teams on the left sidebar and go to the team you want to add a guest to.
  2. Select More options (...) then Add member.
  3. Enter the guest's email address, then click on Edit guest information to give them a friendly user name.
  4. Click Add. Your guest will receive a welcome email invitation.
    1. Guests must have an Office 365 work or school account. If they don't have a Microsoft account associated with their email, they'll be prompted to create one for free.
Also, ensure that Guests only have the appropriate permissions in a Team.
As the Team OWNER:
  1. Select Teams on the left side of the app.
  2. Go to the team name and select More options (...), then Manage team.
  3. Under Settings, click on Guest permissions, then check or un-check the permissions you want to allow.
