  1. Verify if they have a valid Office 365 Business account

    • Not a requirement: Regular Microsoft accounts (or third party accounts) can be added to Teams as guests. But helpful to know what kind of account you are inviting.
    • If this download procedure does not work, it will probably generate a question which will help you understand the account you are trying to invite a little better.
