I'm a Global Admin.  I have a team with a number of owners and members.  If I add myself as a member (in O365 admin app), within Teams (either the app or the webapp) I am unable to see or join the Team.  I've tried making myself owner, with the same result.  Do I need to wait a while for this to take effect?  I've tried logging out and in again, all to no avail!

Hi!
Please explain how you added yourself to the team! Did you add yourself to the group? From teams you need to have access to the team already to get access to the permission control

Solution
If you added yourself to the underlaying office 365 group there is a synchronization period up to 24 hours!

I added myself to the office 365 group, which probably explains things. Does that (up to) 24 hour latency also exist when adding members via the Teams interface?

No it hits directly! The best rule is to grant membership in the service you need membership for, in this case teams..
All seems well! It should synchronize within time

Anyone else had Teams vanish from the apps list?
