  1. Let Guest accounts be Team Owners, even if I have to license them.

    Let Guest accounts be Team Owners, even if I have to license them.

    Guests can be important Team members also, requiring the full access and functionality of Teams.

    Creating another login in my tenant for them and asking them to switch accounts is a poor solution.

  2. Switching tennants takes far too long and doesn't show activity updates in other tennants

    When having to switch to another tenant in teams for one of my clients the switch over takes too long. It also leaves you blind to activity on any other client unless you were specifically @ mentioned which almost entirely defeats the purpose. It makes you have to switch between them all constantly and this takes a long time. It becomes difficult to justify teams use this way

  3. Guests should be able to send files in private chats

    Guest can send files/images inside channels but not inside private chats. Without that feature the communication with external developers or testers is almost not possible or had to be done inside a channel, which would disturb other team members.

  5. Remove the need to flip between accounts

    I suggest removing the need to flip between accounts to see news feed, chat, teams and channels for each account. Once you're logged to all your accounts you should be able to see all of these from the same area regardless what account they're part of. Flipping between accounts to see these things is inefficient and also is problematic with notifications.

  6. Allow 'Guests' to have the same amount of functionality as a regular Member.

    Allow 'Guests' to have the same amount of functionality as a regular Member. Or as much as possible while still keeping things secure.

    When a Guest is added to the Team, often times they are at the same level of team membership / importance / contributor as actually internal Members and it makes no sense business wise to limit their functionality - arbitrarily - just because they are not part of our tenant.

  7. I would like to be able to see all the teams (including Guest teams) I am in from the Team App.

    I would like to be able to see all the teams (including Guest teams) I am in from the Team App rather than having to switch views

  8. customisable email invite for guests

    Is it possible to customise the email template that is sent to guest when they are added to a team?

    for example, if we wanted to add in a sentence about our company's acceptable use policy, or something to adhere too?

  9. external sharing specific team

    Currently external sharing can be enabled/disabled for all Teams tenantwide at once.
    It will be much more flexible if the external sharing could be enabled on per-team basis.

  13. Flesh out the external user feature by supporting additional information for those users, such as name, title, location, contact info, etc.

    Currently, outside users (guests) reflect only the email address used to add them to the Teams site. Need more info, such as actual user name, company/location, contact info if we're going to communicate and collaborate effectively.

  14. List guest teams like Yammer

    Instead of having to select tenant, pls have all teams in one list and mark those in other tenants with a globe. Much like Yammer.

    Also have notifications displayed in the same manner. I.e one experience for everybody with no need to switch tenants.

    It would give everybody a clearer and easier way of keeping track of all your teams, no matter of where they reside.

  16. Option to remove guest account (under Your accounts) from Microsoft Teams

    As a guest, I cannot remove a guest account (under Your accounts) from my Microsoft Teams. I can leave all teams, I'm a guest member of, but I'm stuck with the account.

  17. Able to allow guest access for special teams (o365 groups) only, not all

    Same concept already in for SharePoint Online sites, disable guest access on tenant level and set for special single sites only "allow external sharing", must be possible also for teams (o365 groups), in same way, current situation at the moment a show stopper for us, current domain handling not a solution

  19. Trying to add an external member to the team results in error: "You are not authorized"

    Microsoft Teams indicates that I can add external members: "You can also add people outside your organization as guests by typing their email addresses.". However, when I try to add an external member with an Office 365 work account, I get an error message "You are not authorized".

  20. Eliminate "Context" Switching from Guest Feature

    The new guest feature is a great start, but it feels more like a bolt-on than a core part of the experience. I'd like to see you be able to converse/collaborate as a guest in other organizations without needing to switch between tenants.

    Each context switch takes several seconds and is disruptive, I know I'm being picky here, but I believe this would help keep the end user experience smooth and drive adoption.

    Thanks!
