How to Add Students in Microsoft Teams
 

How do I add students? 

We need to add students as guests.

 

Follow these steps: 

 

Add a guest to your team

 

Guests must have an Office 365 work or school account. If the guest doesn’t yet have a Microsoft account associated with their email address, they will be directed to create one for free.

 

To add a guest to your team in Teams:

 

  1. Select Teams  Teams button and go to the team in your team list.

  2. Select More options More options button > Add member.

  3. Enter the guest's email address. Anyone with a business or consumer email account, such as Outlook, Gmail, or others, can join your team as a guest.

    Note: If you receive a "We didn't find any matches" error while trying to add a guest, your organization doesn't allow guests. 
     

  4. Add your guest's name. Select Edit guest information Edit guest name button and type a friendly name for them. Be sure to take the time to do this now—you’ll need the help of an IT admin to do it later.

  5.  Click Add. Guests will receive a welcome email invitation that includes some information about joining Teams and what the guest experience is like


Now that all that's done, the next thing you're going to do is set guest permissions.

 

Note: When you add a guest, only their name gets added to their profile card. To add or change other info (such as phone number or title), you'll need to contact your IT admin.

 

Identify guests on a team

 

To see if a team has any guests, just look below the heading where the team name shows up.

You can tell if someone is a guest by looking anywhere their name appears—the word “Guest” appears after it. You can also see everyone’s roles in the Members tab of a team. Go to the team name and select More options More options button > Manage team and then Members.
