Each person in a Microsoft Team has a role, and each one has different permissions.
Team owners manage certain settings for the Team. They add and remove members and guests, change Team settings, and handle administrative tasks. There can be multiple owners in a Team.
Members are the most common type of role in a Team. They can talk with other people in the Team, view and usually upload and change files. They also do the usual sorts of collaboration that the team owners have permitted.
Guests are people from outside of University of Leeds that a Team owner can invite into a Team. Guests have fewer capabilities than Team members or Team owners, but there's still a lot they can do.
The following table shows the capabilities available for each role:
|Create a channel||X||X||X|
