Add guests to a team

If you're a team owner, you can now invite guests to your team. Go to the team name, click More options More options button > Add members, and then enter the guest's email address.


  • Guests just need a valid email address.

  • If you receive a "We didn't find any matches" error while trying to add a guest, your organization doesn't allow guests. Contact your IT admin for more info.

For guests, you need to add the name other people will see. Click Edit guest information Edit guest name button and then type their name. Be sure to take the time to add their name now—you’ll need the help of an IT admin to add it later.

Good news—you can now add guests to your team! You'll need to go to the desktop app to begin the process, though.
