    Very good information! I have a question, some time ago, I was invited to join to a Teams created by a contact. Now I would like to delete this additional “company” or account and just have my job company teams.
    Can I leave this somehow? or delete it?
    Thanks and regards

      Hi Adriana,

      You can leave the team but the other company will always appear in your tenant eventhough you no longer have access to it.

      Have a nice day

    I have been using Location on my the Mobile App for months but when I went to use it today it was missing. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the App but still the Location is missing. How can I get it back. I am using an Android phone.

      Hi Carol,

      I need to further investigate this, it is happening also in one of my tenants.
