Microsoft Teams - Collaboration Between UTRGV and Other Organizations

Microsoft Teams allows collaboration between UTRGV and many UT institutions.

Add UT users (and trusted domains) to MS Teams

  1. Find the MS Teams group to which you want to add a member.
  2. Right-click the More Options icon (3 dots) at the top right corner.
  3. Select Add member from the drop-down menu.
  4. Type in the email address of the individual you wish to add to your team.

NOTE: Please be sure to type in their complete and exact email address, including “@...” as not doing so will cause a mismatch in the search function.

  1. Click Send Request. The request will be sent to the group team owner for approval.


Adding NON-UT users to a Team

If an email address is not part of a trusted domain, an error message will appear (see image below). You may request to have a privately-owned domain added for Teams use by submitting this Teams Domain Trust Request. Note that individual email addresses cannot be added, the entire domain has to be trusted/added.  Therefore, general publicly-owned domains such as Gmail or can not be added.  For information security reasons, not all requests may be approved.
