Cannot remove a Guest from a Channel or a Team

Occasional Visitor

Managing the channel and attempting to remove guest members by pushing the X simply results in the X returning after a second or two and the guest member remains.

That isn't how it is supposed to work so that is frustrating.  If you continue to see this, please go to so they can help you troubleshoot.  


If  you are an admin, you can remove them from AD, too - instructions for doing that here:



@MarcPatti380 , if you cannot remove a guest user from a group where you are the owner, then you could try doing that from the mobile phone (that was the only way it worked for me, not having an Azure admin account, but as the owner of the group)
