Need to add new students, educators, or staff members to a team at your school? Microsoft Teams for Education is a collaborative environment. Follow the steps below to create a link or code so they can join your team in just a couple of easy steps.

Note: You must be a team owner to create join links or codes.

Create a link

Important: If a team or channel is private (has a lock icon), you won't be able to share a link. If someone opens the link, they'll be able to request to join. 

To create a team link:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams.

  2. Select Teams. Navigate to the team you'd like to create a link for.

  3. Next to your team's name, select More options ... > Get link to team.

    manage team

  4. Select Copy, then send the link to your student or colleague.

Create a join code

Unlike team links, a join code allows someone to join your team right away. They won't have to submit a request to join. Join codes can be used as many times as you want.

To create a join code:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams.

  2. Select Teams. Navigate to the team you'd like to create a code for.

  3. Next to the team's name, select More options ... > Manage team.

  4. Select Settings and scroll down to Team code.

  5. Select Generate, then copy the code to send it out or write it on the board.

Join a team with a link or code

To join a team with a link, paste the link into any web browser.

To join a team using a code:

  1. Select the Teams icon in your app bar, then select Join or create a team.
