Can Whole Site Admin Access All Private Team?

 Can Whole Site Admin View All Private Team? The scenario is that one user creates a private team, but doesn't invite the Whole Site Admin. Can the Admin access or view this private team?

Not by default, but being admins they can add themselves as members of any Team, including Private ones.

Thanks. I just tried it, but the admin can't see the private teams created by others. Where could I find it?

O365 Admin Center -> Groups, or via PowerShell.

Hi Vasil,

 

I have added myself as an owner and member of a private Team, but still after a couple of minutes I am not seeing the team in my Web App and when going to the site I am still getting an access denied. Is there a time lag? (note: I am seeing the Team in my Outlook Web App under the groups section. but when opening the site from there i am also getting an access denied).

 

Kind regards,

Jacco Weijers

Yes, it might take a while to syncrhonize the changes across all the different workloads used by Groups/Teams.
