How to know when you were added to a Team’s group chat

Microsoft Teams allows group owners to add new internal and external members to a team’s chat. However, you might want to know if you’ve been added to a group chat, or you may want to record when new members are added. Here, I will provide the steps to view this information.

You must have admin permissions enabled to view the information on when you added a user to a Microsoft Teams group chat. Now you can select one of the groups that you are a part of, and then you can view all the information, such as your membership status and when you added them to the group. From there, you will be able to go into the Azure Active Directory and proceed to view the your group information.

  • Firstly, open Office 365. 
  • Now click on the launcher. 
  • You need to click on the option for “Admin.” 
  • Click on “Azure active directory” from the Admin centers section. 
  • Now click on the option for “All services.” 
  • Click on the option for “Users.” 
  • Select yourself as the user. 
  • Under Manage, click on “Groups.” 
  • Choose one of the groups that include the includes you. 
  • View or record the information to complete the process. 

You can view every group that includes yourself, the information of when you added the user to the group, and your status as a group member. If you are a general user of Microsoft Teams, you won’t be able to view this information as you need Azure Active Directory to view it. However, if you have admin permissions enabled, you, as an admin member, can view this information for all users including yourself in Microsoft Teams. 

Remember, the option that states “Created at” is not when you created the group in Microsoft Teams. You cannot view the information for when someone made a group in Azure Active Directory, and it can only be viewed in the Compliance panel using a policy. The “created at” tab was when you created the membership status for that user. 

An in-depth guide on how to know when you were added to a team’s group chat

If you require additional assistance with the steps above, you can use the in-depth guide to help. Our in-depth guide includes various resources you can use to help and go through the process. 

The first set of resources you can use in our in-depth guide is a set of screenshots which will allow you to see the process and navigate through the program UI so you know what you need to do to complete the process. If you require further assistance, we have also provided some in-depth analysis which you can use to help understand the more complex steps in the process. 

  • Firstly, open Office 365.  
  • Now click on the launcher. 

Nine dots display the launcher in your Office 365 dashboard in the top left corner of the display; clicking on it will allow you to view all the applications provided by Microsoft. 

  • You need to click on the option for “Admin.” 

You will need to select the one called Admin from the list of different applications provided. 

  • Click on “Azure active directory” from the Admin centers section.  

Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform is Microsoft Azure, formerly Windows Azure. It offers numerous cloud services, such as computation, analytics, storage, and user/group information. These services are available for users to select from when trying to do tasks such as view groups or user information. 

  • Now click on the option for “All services.” 
  • Click on the option for “Users.”  

If you click on the star next to the options available in the All services section, you can add the option to the favorites section of the AD dashboard. What this allows you to do is that any option you use regularly will be available for you without having to go into the All services section to find it. 

  • Select yourself as the user. 
  • Under Manage, click on “Groups.”  

While the option for Groups is available in the All services section, you will find that this option only shows generic group information and not specific information, which is required when you view users assigned to groups. 

  • Choose one of the groups that include the includes you. 
  • View or record the information to complete the process. 

Azure Active Directory is a platform where users can view all their Microsoft 365 information. You can view all the groups within the program and which users are assigned to which group within Microsoft. You can also assign different admin policy roles to different organization members. You must ensure you have an adequate level of permissions enabled to view this information and make the necessary changes if required.

Why may you want to know when you were added to a team’s group chat?

One reason you may want to view this information is that you may want to keep a record of when you added users to a group in Microsoft Teams. Sometimes it helps to keep a fairly detailed report of when you were assigned to groups in Microsoft Teams. Microsoft allows you to monitor the performance within the group and record it if necessary for security reasons.
