I have added a new member to my Organisation via Azure AD. For some reason it was added as a guest so I changed that in Azure but it is appearing as Guest in Teams.

Any idea why and how to solve it?

    Hi @Ana Llabrés

    Changing a user's role in a team can be done through the Azure Active Directory. To do so:

    1. Go to > Manage Azure Active Directory
    2. Click 'Users' and select the user you want to change the user type.
    3. Click Edit. Under 'User type' choose between member or guest then click save.

    4.In Office 365 admin center > Users. Make sure Teams license has been assigned to this user.
    The change may not take effect immediately.
