Teams keeps recovering person I am deleting from my organization, how this can be fixed?

 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Click Gear icon next to "Join or create a team"

2. Click on "People" on team I want to remove someone from

3. Navigate to person, click delete to remove

4. There is a confirmation message that "[my name] removed [user name] from the team" 

 

Bug is that user will be back in few days and I would have to do it again and again.

Last occurrences:

I removed 2 users on April 1

on April 4 they joined back

I removed 2 users on April 5

on April 7 those 2 users joined back 

 

Removing of users is critical feature for group chat software, that's a security flow if ex-employees have access to chat and files.

Can you check that the underpaying office 365 group isn’t a dynamic group??

If so, users will be added due to certain attributes automatically!

Also, is this a private or public team?

Open a support case and report this. There have been several similar issues in the past, I thought they'd fix them by now...

@Ssh78 I'm relatively new to Microsoft Teams and use the free version to communicate with colleagues in my Teams.  I have experimented with sending org links and Team links to investigate who can access the various Teams and I found a similar difficulty in trying to remove them. 

 

I find that although I can remove members from the organisation they can still be located in the search bar and might appear in Chat. I wonder if this is because once they're in the system they're hard to get rid of simply because they could have made previous contributions to the Chat conversations or uploaded files and therefore still need to be referenced. 

 

There also seems to be a difference between 1) members who I, as owner, added to a Team and then immediately removed (they remain as 'Unknown User') and 2) members who were added by me and who also followed invite links to join a Team (they remain listed as initially named by me) even if they didn't previously contribute to any chat conversations or upload any files/content.  

 

@Ssh78 I don't see any "X", nor in the app, and in the web version.....
