How to create a new team on Microsoft Teams


Anyone can create a new team which can be shared with others. When you create a team, you will also get a SharePoint Online site and document library to store team files. 

To create a new team, log on to with your and UoS password. 

You should then be presented with the full suite of Microsoft applications as shown below



Next, select the Teams icon. This will redirect you to a new page.



Select ‘Join or create team’.



Select ‘Create a team’.



Select your Team Type. For the purposes of this guide, I have selected ‘Staff’.



Give your team a name, description, and select the privacy settings. If you are sharing confidential or sensitive information, please ensure that you select ‘Private’. This gives you as an owner full control of who can access your team.



Add members to your team. You can add individuals (internally or externally) or groups. You can also add and remove members at any stage, so you do not have to add everyone at this stage. If you don’t want to add anyone, select Skip.



Your new team has now been created.



You can manage your team by selecting the ellipsis next to your team name.
