Microsoft Teams - Collaboration Between UTRGV and Other UT Institutions

Microsoft Teams allows collaboration between UTRGV and many UT institutions.

How do I add users 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. Request will be sent to the group team owner for approval.

NOTE: If an email address is not on an authorized domain, an error message will appear (see image below). You may request to have a domain considered for whitelisting by submitting a Service Request. If you are unable to add an email address and it is privately owned and not a general publicly-owned domain such as gmail or, you can request it be added to the list.  However, for information security reasons, not all requests may be approved.
