Criteria for new companies appearing in Microsoft Teams organization list

Iron Contributor


In the last year Microsoft has launched the ability to switch between organizations in the Teams desktop client.  For example, I work with our Microsoft reps, so I see the option to switch to their tenant where I am a guest.


Recently our Help Desk received a call from someone concerned that they see a new company in the list.  After further investigation, they have accepted a meeting invite from this company. What is the process required to add additional organizations to the list?  Is accepting a meeting from another organization enough to add the additional organization into the list of available companies?  Surely that isn't enough, as I've had meeting with multiple companies and only have one additional organization (Microsoft) in my list.  


If anyone can help direct me to the criteria/steps required to add additional organizations, that would be helpful.  We know how to leave the organizations, but I'm trying to better understand the "add" behavior so I can provide guidance within my organization.  Thanks!Untitled.png

The requirement is to be added as a Guest in their tenancy, which is usually done by accepting a guest invitation. Here are the details:

Thank you @Vasil Michev This makes sense to me based on the description of the behavior my colleague took.
