Hi,

I have a private team and recently found out that someone who has the role of "member" is able to add members. As a Owner I get an activity feed that xx have requested to add xx to the team, but the pending request tab is empty and the requested user is already added as a member to team  without any approval from the owner - that shouldn't be the case right

No, this isnt right! I’d suggest testing this out again and see if this is the normal behavior for you and in that case report it to MS!!

I think what you are seeing is the ability of Team Members to request to add new members....they have the option there, but a Team Owner has to approve/deny the request. This is a new feature disclosed las week

Yeah but he Said it was sent a request but the owner didn’t approve it and the member was added anyway..

Try this again and see!
