Delete an inviation

Copper Contributor


I invited a user to join my Microsoft Teams via email a few months ago. The collaboration did not happen, so he did not accept the email invitation. However, it is still displayed to me under "pending". Is there any way to delete this invitation?

Thank you very much and best regards

Yes, there is a way to delete the pending invitation in Microsoft Teams. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams and sign in to your account.
  2. In the left sidebar, click on the "Teams" tab to view your teams and channels.
  3. Scroll down to the "Join or create a team" section.
  4. Click on the three-dot menu (...) next to the team name for which you sent the invitation.
  5. From the drop-down menu, select "Manage team."
  6. In the "Manage" tab, click on the "Pending requests" option on the left sidebar.
  7. You should see the pending invitation(s) listed there. Find the invitation you want to delete.
  8. Click on the three-dot menu (...) next to the invitation.
  9. From the options, select "Delete request" or "Remove request" to remove the invitation.

By following these steps, you should be able to delete the pending invitation from your Microsoft Teams account. If you encounter any issues or the invitation doesn't get removed, you can also try reaching out to Microsoft Teams support for further assistance.
