Hi

 

In the docs for 'How do I join a public team' it says.

 

To join a public team, click on the Add a team link that appears at the bottom of your teams list. You'll see your teams gallery, including a bunch of suggested teams. Go to the team you'd like to join and then click Join team.

 

 

I can type some team names into search and it finds some that I can join, without issue.

 

But I don't see 'a bunch of suggested teams' like the docs or videos I have say I should.

 

What am I missing here.

 

Thanks

This is "working as intended" currently, because it is returning a form of Graph result and only feeding you Public Teams it thinks would be relevant to you. In your case, this appears to be none :)

 

Changing this functionality to display all Public Teams has been planned and should be coming in the future: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18692086-list-all-public-teams

Thanks for the reply.

 

Thought it might be something like this.  I saw something similar in the SharePoint app.

 

Not sure what the Graph is looking for to decide what is relevant, but since all our groups and teams are quite new, and empty, I suppose it does not have much to go on.

 

I definitely would vote for 'display all' which would be especially as we roll out teams.

This seems to also be related to the way I added some Teams.

 

All the ones we are missing were created from exiting sharepoint sites.

 

I can go into admin and add users manually to the group and then they appear in there list in the app.  But otherwise we have no way to find any of these.

How is the list of suggested Teams generated?

If it is based on signals from the graph, what is it in the graph that the list of suggested Teams is looking for? 

I'd like a way to try to influence that so that new users to Teams have a good experience on launch.

The page you link to said it was complete back in May but it technically for something different.  Do you have, or can you get, any update on this?  My entire company just gets a blank page when we click Add Team and everyone is confused as to how this is supposed to work.

We still do as well..

 

Had to manually add users to the groups.  Then once some users are members they can add others.  Not ideal.

We have not added any new teams lately, so I don't know what would happen now.  Still believe it was to do with creating teams ftom existing sharepoint sites, but have not looked for verification on this yet.

We created all our Teams from scratch from within Teams itself. Nothing shows up under the Add Teams page for anyone.

@David Rosenthal, is there a particular relationship that the Graph is looking at that we can encourage users to engage, or engage for them, in order to help drive the list of suggested Teams?

Hard to tell as the weighting and such that goes into the algorithm to determine relevancy is fairly black box and not documented anywhere. There are hints in places that it is probably using some sort of interaction via Exchange as a factor, so things around that may help drive a result.

 

Some hints here in Suphatra's reply on this UserVoice item: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18644551-search-public-and-pri...
