Microsoft Teams Problem Description

More specifically, if you are trying to get to Teams in a browser, you see the following error message in the callback URL:
How to Fix Error: AdminTeamsDisabledForTenantForbidden
You’re missing out! Enable Microsoft Teams for your Organization.
Microsoft is migrating away from Skype for Business. They recently migrated my Office 365 Business account to Microsoft Teams. However, when I tried to login to Microsoft Teams via the desktop app or in a browser the screen would say: “You’re Missing Out! Enable Microsoft Teams for Your Organization.” When I tried to access teams via the browser at teams.microsoft.com I also noticed the error code in the url: “AdminTeamsDisabledForTenantForbidden”.
Unfortunately, a few hours with Microsoft support was not helpful in resolving the problem. But, I was able to dig through the many layers of Microsoft’s settings and admin pages to discover the problem, and solution. Here’s the solution.
Error Code from URL Response
Note, the “You’re Missing Out! Enable Microsoft Teams for your Organization.” message can appear for many different reasons.
To get more information about what the problem is, try logging into teams.microsoft.com in Google Chrome. (Note: The error message was stripped from the url in Microsoft Edge’s browser.) Then, take a look at the error code that appears in the address bar. This error code will give you (a little) more information about the problem.
In my case, the error message was: AdminTeamsDisabledForTenantForbidden. Your error message may not be the same. In which case, this solution may not work for you.
