Welcome to the group VS Welcome to the Team
When a Team is created in the Teams Admin Center and users are added to that Team, they get an email notification announcing their "Welcome to the xyz group" with information on how to particiapte: email the group, go to SharePoint, Go to shared notebook, etc. Not once does it mention going to the actual Team.
On the other hand, when adding a Team and members to that Team inside of Teams itself, the welcome is much more correct, where it sends "xyz has added you to abc! Open Microsoft Teams". This makes much more sense--go to Teams after adding someone to Teams... so why is the former made the way it is when both the Admin Center and Teams itself both are for Teams? Very confusing. They should both send the latter version of the invitation; keep Teams with Teams.
This is clearly a bug. When the user gets the "Welcome to the xyz group" message there is no link to the Team and they have no way to join the team.
I've spent most of my morning trying to work out how guests are meant to join the team. Thanks Travis for the explanation.
the message should be clear to users."you have been added to XYZ team" even if teams is created from teams admin center.
Also: we have found that people subsequently added to a Team that was originally created within the Teams Admin center receive the "welcome to a Group" message--with no link to the Team--even if added from within the Teams client. That is bonkers: please fix.
