Inviting multiple users to a team in Teams

Here are two tips on how to invite members to join a team themselves. Note that these options only work for users with an account at Umeå University.

Invite with a code

All teams have a code that can be used to join the team. The person using the code will join the team immediately. Please note that only people with Umu accounts can connect with a code and that everyone that has access to the code can connect with the team without your permission.

  1. Go to your team. Select the three dots to the right of the team name.
  2. Click Manage Teams.
