Groups Not visible in Microsoft Teams

Occasional Contributor

I created a few groups using "Microsoft 365 admin center", added users to the group. I am one of the owners of the group. While the group was created, the "Hide group from Organization GAL" Unchecked.


When in login into Teams (Windows Desktop App) to create a Team meeting and add this group it is not visible. It has been more than 3 days since the group was created.


Thanks in advance.

Thank you for being a member of the Teams community.

Go to admin center and add yourself as a member to the group too! Wait for a while and it should show up


@ThereseSolimeno - Thanks for the pointers. I had gone through those links but could not get the behavior I had expected.

@adam deltinger 

Thanks.  Simple but worked for me.


My learning from this - OWNER of a group  is not a member of the group. 

For certain features to work one has to be Member of the Group too.
