I have installed teams for linux on my laptop. But when I log on I get the question: sign in with your organization account. The problem is that that organization account no longer exists because I recently retired. I have reinstalled teams for linux, but every time I get the same problem. I can't manage to log in with my private account because I get the response that my login or password is not correct. I already checked my password, I don't think that's the problem.

Hi Jasper!

I have just installed the newest Teams client for Linux. After providing the login data for my personal account, the client tells me, that I'm not yet part of Teams, but could set it up for my "organization" (which of course I don't have since it's a personal account).

Using Teams on Android and in Chrome both work with the very same account, though and Microsoft's Teams support website also claims, it is possible to use Teams with a personal account on the desktop ("PC and Mac"). Perhaps, Linux isn't included in "PC"?

Best regards,
Henrik

Response to  Jasper

Hi Jasper!

Sorry for the late reply! I thought I had notification for the comments set, but it must have gone to spam folder ...

Any way, I'm really happy for your reply 🙂 I made sure, I'm using the most current version of Teams for Linux (Preview). However, I'm still experiencing the same issue. After logging in, it keeps telling me the same and provides me a link "Register for Teams". When I click it, I get to a website, where after login, I have to say if I want to use Teams for school, work and organizations or family and friends. When I choose the third option, it tells me, I can't use Teams for this purpose and should use Skype. 😛

I've now been brave enough to choose the second option and create an organization. I don't really think that's the way it's supposed to be (and browser and mobile app also worked without setting up an organization), so let's see what I broke. 😛

Does everybody else with whom I want to chat in channels also have to set up an organization? Does it have to be the same as mine?

Regards,
Henrik
