How to Invite Guests to Teams

Published Date:


At times, it may be necessary to add a user who is not a current student or employee at UVU to a Team. Such users must be added as guests.

  • You must be a Team Owner in order to add guests to a team.

  • Guests may not be added to a single channel, and must be added to an entire team. Guests invited to a team will therefore be able to see all channels and content within that team.

  2. Locate the team you want to invite the guest to, then click the three dots (meatball) menu next to the team name.

  3. Click the Add member button.
