hi.

I have a onedrive account, being a contractor in the gig economy, and that's where my data sits.

I use the standalone MS Office suites (word/excel/access/outlook/PP/Project/Visio).

Today I registered for the Teams Free option because a lot of my clients are corporates who run on Teams and block Slack/Zoom/Whatsapp etc when I'm on site. So what with lockdown and all, it makes sense to change provider since Microsoft is coming to the party in hard times and it's all integrated.

Now here's the thing.

It's 8 hours in and the account still isn't set up. Can't access the wiki, can't change pics, can't access the teams folders to load collaberative data.

Is this because there is contention with the main MS account where my Surface Pro, onenote, onedrive etc stuff is registered? Or am I just being impatient? I can't find any reference to an extended elay in set up time.

Please help.

thanks.
