Changing from Teams free to the paid version

New Contributor

Hi there,


when I change from Microsoft Teams free to one of the paid versions: is it possible for me to choose, if the currently existing team members become guests or paid members?

Hi @WilliTWRK 


Unfortunately you cannot migrate the Teams from the Free Version to Paid Version. You will have to do the complete new set up of the Teams Paid Services.

these are sad news to read. Does there exist a possibility to export the data from the old and import them in the new Microsoft Teams?


Best regards
