Hi

 

maybe this is now a stupid question but i haven't found any information on that :(

If you click on "Manage Settings" (as a owner of a team) there is a Tab called "Pending Requests"

 

What is the procedure for a user to request to join a Team in order to show up in that Tab?

 

Via MS teams you can not lookup/search for private teams.  If you discover private groups via outlook then you can request the membership, but this triggers only a mail to the owner --> pending request tab in MS teams remains empty

thank you

It's when someone "Get link" from a conversation etc. in a private Team and shares it with another user via chat etc. It'll then give user request access and then add to that tab. Similar to how SharePoint request access used to work.

@Chris Webb Hi Chris. I have a question about guest access invite...
If Team Owners are the only ones who can add guests to a team, what could be the process or steps in which a member can request to add a guest to a team? Is there a feature in Teams that you can do this or is it just sending a request via chat to Team Owner? Let me know please. Thanks!

Pretty much. If you wanted to get technical with it,, you could create a SharePoint list on the Team site tied to Teams for the request, or a Microsoft Form, make it a tab, where you request some basic info, then it submits to them with a form of tracking. But out of the box right now there isn't anything. The only pending requests are for internal users you can give them a link to content which goes to a pending request inside of Teams that owners can approve, but it doesn't yet work for guest requests.

@Chris Webb @Stefan Fried A member can request another user to join the Team, this creates a request that the owner will need to approve first. Unfortunately it currently only seems to work with internal users, not guests.

Is there a way to manage the pending request programmatically, such as list, update etc. We are looking for a solution to perform auto-approve pending request for a certain group.
