The individual who created the tenant (i.e. the person who signed up for the free version of Teams) can upgrade directly from the Teams free product by clicking on your profile in the top left hand corner. When you upgrade from the free version of Microsoft Teams, the subscription also unlocks the full set of Teams capabilities, including scheduled meetings, calendar, 1 TB of file storage, and advanced administration features.
Will I be able to keep my data if I upgrade to a paid version of Office 365?
Yes. Customers who purchase Office 365 Business Premium or Business Essentials directly from the free version of Teams will not lose any data. Customers needing to purchase Office 365 enterprise plans can work with some of our trusted partners to migrate their data to their new paid plan
Who’s eligible for the free version of Microsoft Teams?
Any person with any corporate or consumer email address can sign up for Teams today. People who don’t already have a paid Office 365 commercial subscription will have access to the free version of Teams. If an existing Office 365 commercial customer tried to sign up for free, they will be routed into a managed experience for their existing tenant. Existing customers who don’t have a Teams license as part of their Office 365 or Microsoft plan will soon be eligible for a 1 year free trial.
