Last Updated: January 13, 2023
Is someone causing a disturbance within a community you own on Teams? Do you want to stop the user from participating in the chat or viewing its contents? If so, you can remove the person as a member of your community. Follow our guide below, and we’ll cover everything you need to know about removing members from your Teams community.
If you’re the owner of a community on Microsoft Teams, you have full control over the members of the chat and its contents. As such, you can moderate who can participate in the conversation and remove unwanted people from the members list.
As your community grows, there might be users that don’t regularly follow the guidelines you have for the chat. Also, there might be a time when some users are no longer active in the conversation.
If you’re a community owner, you have full permission in managing the chat. You can remove and add members whenever you want to keep the chat secure and safe for everyone participating.
Here’s our guide about removing community members on Teams.
How to kick a member from a Teams community
If someone is causing trouble or isn’t active in your community on Microsoft Teams, you can remove them from the conversation. As the owner, you have permission to manage its members, including removing them from the community.
You can manage and remove community members from the Teams mobile app. We’ll show you the steps on how to do it in our tutorial below.
On your phone:
- Open the Teams app from your home screen or app drawer and sign in to your account.
- Head to the Home tab and go to one of the communities you manage.
- Tap the information icon on the conversation header.
- Select the Manage option in the Members section.
- Tap one of the members in the list.
- Select the “Remove from community” option from the menu and tap “Remove” on the pop-up window to confirm your decision.
Once you remove someone from a community, they can no longer access the chat history. If you want to undo your decision, you can invite the person back to the chat by sharing a QR code or link.
For now, communities are only available on the Teams mobile app. As such, you can only manage your community from your phone.
Please note that only community owners can manage the community members, including adding and removing people from the chat. If you’re participating as a member, you can only leave the group, not manage its members.
To wrap things up
Now that you know how to manage a community’s members on Teams, you can now remove the people you don’t want participating in the chat. With the help of this feature, you can easily kick out problematic and inactive members of your community.
