How can I fix Microsoft Teams Error code 6?

It seems that the problem that caused Error code 6 was a group misconfiguration on the user’s part. As for the solution, all you need to do is changes the Power Web App Settings on the SharePoint site.

While no exact specifications are given, suffice it to say you need to make sure that everyone that belongs to a Microsoft Teams group has the exact same PWA settings.

Similarly to other collaborative tools such as Slack, users cannot be created without first being part of a larger organization. In the case of Microsoft Teams, a group called a Team.
