You may also download and install the app on your private PC, tablet or mobile phone (Android, iOS and Windows Phone). You may also use Teams in a web browser on https://teams.microsoft.com. This will give you the same functionality as the installed program.
How can I create a new team?
Create a new team by filling out this form.
- The person submitting the form will be the owner of the team and can add new members/owners.
- If you have created a new team using the form, please let us know if you want to delete it.

How do I add members?
The owners of the team can easily add new members. Click the three dots and choose 'Add Members'. Internal users are the easiest; Search for them by name or type their e-mail address. External users (those who don't have an account at UiB) can also be added, but make sure to add the right address. Some use email@example.com, while others use their e-mail address.
If someone outside UiB want to add you to their team as a guest, please ask them to invite you using your e-mail address.
