Ever joined a Team as a guest and you leave the Team but the organization still appears in your tenant list?

 

Azure Active Directory has released a way to now leave an organization as a guest. When you join as a guest to a Team it sets up a B2B account for you in that tenant for that guest access to happen.

 

You can use the following method to fully remove yourself from the tenant. This will break that link from your Team clients so it no longer shows in your tenant selection list! 

 

This article details how to remove yourself from that tenant:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-b2b-leave-the-organization

 

Do keep in mind if you do need access to other resources besides Teams on this tenant, you do not want to remove yourself form the tenant. 

 

Thanks @Todd Klindt and @Shane Young for pointing this new B2B function out on your podcast, will help us Teams users out!

The link is death but i used google cache to get the content great solution

Odd. Wonder why Microsoft pulled it. Guess I’ll update with screenshots if I can’t find a updated location. Thanks for letting me know.
Looks like all the b2b docs are giving 404's not sure what's up. Anyway, I edited original post with a link to a blog someone detailed the same steps on.

FYI - I can get to the page. 

Thanks @Nicholas Dambrosio, they must have fixed it :). 

THANK YOU.  This was driving me nuts.  Appreciate the trail to freedom! 

I followed the instructions but found to my astonishment that if you subscribed to channel email notifications, those still continue! So I get notifications on conversations going on even if I left the tenant and since I can't get back, I can't unsubscribe...

I followed the method mentioned : https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/active-directory-b2b-leave-the-organization.

I was removed from the organization (I could not enter the organization's teams), but the organization still appears in my tenant list (in the pull down menu). When I selected the organization, I got an error message again. Any other alternative methods available? Please help. Thank you.

@EricLam22 same here, organization name from guest still appear.

Odd that this was deleted, it exactly solves my problem and met my Bing search query.

@EricLam22same issue - did it ever go from the tenants list?

If so how did you achieve that?

To reply to my own question. The tenancy disappeared eventually. I think it took over 48 hours.

how to leave it as a personal outlook account ? we dont get those screens, thank you

Here is a video that covered what I needed - how to leave if your personal account is linked as a Guest to a tenant's Teams... Also covers business/school account, so very useful! https://youtu.be/LNJb9Jj_PYI

@GregCS 
That video shows that you still have to be able to sign in with the organization in order to remove it from your list.
If you no longer can sign in because the admin removed your guest account... what happens then? I have the link to an old guest tenant in my drop down list for 2 months now, so there is no auto removal when you are "botted"... 

 

Any other idea? Anyone?

@wagenmca Problem is you can't remove (leave organisation) if you can no longer access the org. We need a way to force remove organisation from myaccounts.microsoft.com.
