I'm using the free version of Microsoft Teams. When I registered I enter a company name, but then my colleagues entered another one. The issue is that if they invite me I'm part of their organization. How can I delete on of them? I'm only able to switch between organizations?

 

Another question is: How can I be part of a team of another organization without having to have two organizations?

 

Thanks.

 

P.S.: When I mean organization I mean the popup/name next to my name on the top right.

You can remove yourself from accessing the organizations you have been invited to...if you belong to two teams in different organizations, you have to switch from one organization to another to access the teams. You cannot see both Teams in the Teams App

Each tenant you are invited to will show up as a different organization, and what you are seeing is the current experience to switch between them.  If you no longer want to be part of the other organization, you can leave it and remove it from your view by:

 

  1. Navigate to https://myapps.microsoft.com and logging in with the account you use for Teams.
  2. Click your name in the top right corner
  3. Click the settings cog beside "Organizations"
  4. Find the organization you want to leave and click "Leave organization" link beside it.  (Note: if you see "Sign in to leave organization" instead, clicking the link will sign you in, then you have to repeat steps 2-4 here.)

Now the issue is: I belong to OrgA and I want to collaborate with someone in OrgB and include her in one of my teams/channels. I invite the user in OrgB, but in that case she has to become member of my organization. 

How can I avoid the newcomer to have to be in OrgA? She is not part of my organization. I want to something like creating new teams in Microsoft Teams competence ;) This is a must for us, as we are working with people from many different organizations and otherwise it is imposible to manage as I have to switch between organization for each chat.

As far as I know, there is no way around that.  When you invite a guest to your Team, an account is provisioned for that user in your Azure Active Directory. 

 

The current experience for switching between guest tenants is kind of clunky and will hopefully improve with time though.

I'm just reading this post after participating in my first external Team group. We typically used Teams within our own Org. You would think that you'd be able to see all the Teams that your participating with either internal or external in one view- maybe it's just me. Also, it's a disappointing to see the this post is almost a year old and there's been no changes to the way external collaboration works in Teams. ?? We are just starting to plan our O365 deployment strategy for 2000+ users and Teams is a significant part of our department and team collaboration needs. Hope this changes soon. Non-IT users will be very confused by the way it works.

Totally agree, needs to get closer to how slack works, all teams from all organisations available
