Please help me!

 

I am new to MS Teams, Admin, Azure and so on. I have a MS Personal account with active subscriptions. I wanted to test teams out so I can implement it for use in my company. So I signed up for MS free teams using the personal account with my own domain.

 

I created a free organisation. It worked. But I wanted to change the name of it and I couldn't figure out how. I deleted that free organisation but it was still shown in the Teams App. So I found an article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/delete-your-teams-free-organization-2c28cfcf-3fbf-497c-93...

 

I was thinking I should delete the teams account so I could start over fresh. Now I was told that once teams are deleted, I can no longer re-create a free organisation with the same domain name. There are 3 days left till the Teams free is deleted. I have contacted support a few times but received no conclusive help. I am not sure if I have stated my mission clearly:

 

I just want to have a working free organisation for my personal MS account under my current domain.

 

Please help! Appreciated!

Hi there- if you’re going to be a global admin for your company and testing out custom solutions for your company as well check out the developer program. You can get access to a tenant to test Teams and custom apps before you test in your production environment. It might offer you a better solution as you will only get limited features in Teams with the Free version.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/developer-program/microsoft-365-developer-program

You can also sign up for Teams exploratory version for your company if you want to just test drive it and don’t need any custom development- https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-exploratory

I hope this helps.

Hi Thanks for your advise! I already have a 10 person Microsoft Business account setup for my company and the Teams for business is working.

 

I  am just having problems with my personal teams!

 

The whole thing is just VERY confusing. So many versions of Teams, free, personal, app, pc client, admin console, azure... I spent more time trying to set things up than actually using it. Contacted support for a few times and yet here I am still. May be it's not a solution for me.
