How to Enable Join Code Feature in Microsoft Teams

I was at a training and saw where a teacher could get an access code to give to students to join their class in Microsoft Teams. However, I don't see where to enable it in the Office 365 admin center. Has it not been released to everyone yet? It is supposed to found by clicking the ellipses for the team>Manage Team>Settings. Does anyone else have this option? If so, please share how I can make that option available to my organization. It would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you!

It's probably for EDU only? I really hope that comes to business too, would like a way to send out a link to have people request to join private teams.

Yes, it is EDU and our school district has the EDU tenant.

Join codes are not released yet Stephanie.

 

Assignment Analytics, Join Codes, and Reuse a Team as a Template will begin to roll out to Office 365 Education customers enrolled in our Teams for Education beta program today (announced Jan. 21st.). These capabilities will move to worldwide production by Spring 2018.

Mangus, thank you so much! I really appreciate it!

@Magnus Sandtorv My district still does not have the Join Code option in Teams. Is there something I need to do on the backend? I'm really hoping this will be ready for the new school year.

It’s not available for everyone yet, but should light up in your tenant automatically in the coming weeks, definitely before the new school year. When it’s ready you should see it under Manage team - Settings - Team code

Re: How to Enable Join Code Feature in Microsoft Teams

Where will the Team Code be displayed? Currently, in our Teams client, we show the field to join a team by code, but nowhere that displays a code.

Manage Team > Setting tab, section says Code.
