Teams location of users

Occasional Contributor



I have 2 teams users that have the wrong location. We need to add a number to the user, but because it has the wrong location, it cannot be found when i search the name. Is there a way to change the users location? The location in the azure user where teams collects the data from is correct.

I in Office 365 admin center find the user and change the location there. Then wait a couple of hours, since there is a high impact on the Office 365 services now due to high usage it might take a longer time.

@Linus Cansby thank you linus! 


I did not think it was that easy. I indeed need to wait for it to change, but so far it works!

Do you know how long it takes for the location info to propagate to Teams after changing it in Office 365.







I believe it was the same day, but i dont exactly know.
