Hello ladies and gentelemen,

Long time lurker here :) I'm currently trying to do a PoC of Teams in my company but got a few questions regarding some functionalities of MS Teams for Free

Is it possible to sign up for MS Teams for Free using work accounts that are being provided using an on-premise Exchange server or does MS Teams for Free only work with Microsoft Accounts/Office 365 accounts.

Regards !

The account needs to be Microsoft connected! You should be able to connect your on-prem documents with Microsoft!
For an enterprise poc I would start an trial instead so you get all features

Hey Adam,

Thanks for the quick reply. With "connect your on-prem documents with Microsoft!" do you mean connecting the active directory that we have on-prem with Azure AD through AD Connect ?

I think he meant to connect the accounts with a Microsoft Account

But that means that if I'd want to do this for 10 users I'd have to provide them with 10 MS Accounts ... kinda sloppy. I think I'll just set up a new domain and experiment on it using an enterprise trial license.

Yeah! That’s a better idea I believe :)

Cheers, thanks for the responses gentlemen !

No prob
