  1. Allow Guests to schedule Private and Channel meetings

    We work with partners remotely who are just as much a part of our team as those who work for us. These partners are invited to our teams as guests and we would like them to be enabled to schedule meetings for the team. When we try to enable the switch for this it won't allow it so it must be an administratively prevented option.

    • federation

      Currently Teams Federation is provided through Guest access. There isn't much published collateral on the list of features (i.e. SIP to SIP or SIp to Other) defining what is required to build Federation with Partners especially where partners are on Skype and enterprise customer could be fully on Teams. Documentation is needing to provide customers guidance on how would you go about configuring with an OnPrem solution or what is needed to support federation in general. Full Federation guidance documentation is needed for these scenarios.

      • guest add tab to channel

        Have option to allow guests to create tabs in a channel. Guest already have access to add channels, if enabled, but can't add tabs.

        • Allow anonymous guests to chat within a meeting

          Currently, if a guest joins a meeting anonymously, it seems they cannot chat with each other or the organiser.

          If someone wanted to use Teams to webcast to a wide range of users who mostly don't have a Teams account, and may be private citizens rather than organisations, the only option for them to join is anonymously.

          But they then can't use the Chat feature to ask questions (which would be preferable to them using audio on a busy webcast).

          Or is this feature already planned in and coming soon...?

          Thanks,

            Need ability to set security controls at the Channel Level, especially when External Guests are invited to the Team site.

            • 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.

              • Let Guest access work like SharePoint guest access.

                Let Guest access work like SharePoint guest access.
                Currently guest users are required to have a Teams subscription in their own tenant. It would be very helpful if guest access in Teams would function like guest access in SharePoint Online, including restricting the ability to invite guests to only those already in the Azure Active Directory associated with the tenant.

                • Make joining meetings by phone more intuitive

                  Over the years with SfB, I have seen users struggle when joining Skype audio conferences. Inevitably, they join both by phone and computer, causing feedback. I think the join process could be made much more intuitive for Teams by making just a few small changes to the meeting join workflow and making the process identical for both guests and hosts, using the client, browser or app.

                  When a user joins via the web or client, first present an option of which audio to join. I know this was available to a certain extent in SfB… but the verbiage can be…

                  • 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.

                    • Microsoft Teams Guest Access Request

                      Would be really nice if Teams piggy backed off SharePoint's access request system, and or groups. Or a new unified group guest access request experience was introduced to manage guest users.

                      https://support.office.com/en-us/article/set-up-and-manage-access-requests-94b26e0b-2822-49d4-929a-8455698654b3?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

                      Having those abilities for guest invites sent from Teams/Groups/Planner would be nice if they all used this UI so you can resend etc. Would also extremely help if you could see the login id that the users accepted on microsoft account so we know which account they accepted and are using for login to our accounts.

                        When an external Guest is added to an existing team, the guest is not able to access the Wiki.

                        Error message is "It looks like your SharePoint doesn't allow adding Wiki tabs"

                        • Do not allow adding guests to a Team from people picker if guest access is disabled

                          When guest access is disabled for Microsoft Teams, do not allow the ability for members to add a Guest. This option is disabled by default and can be viewed/activated by going to:

                          Admin Center -> Settings -> Services & add-ins -> Microsoft Teams -> Settings by user/license type

                          This is a source of confusion for end users because it allows members to specify a guest user by email address in the people picker control. The Teams application then proceeds to sends the email to the guest user, only to have the guest not be able to view the Team after…

                          • Guest-Access not working properly

                            Hey guys

                            I've noticed that a few things with your guest accounts aren't working properly.

                            - I can't access Teams on iOS where I'm listed as a guest (working on android)
                            - I can't access a Planner-List (doesn't load login screen) in a team where I'm guest.

                            These are the ones I noticed so far.

                            Kind regards

                              • 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

                                    • Prevent guest to view the member's email address

                                      We known that guest cannot view the org of company, we also need to prevent guest to view the member's email address in Teams. It's a necessary security feature as well.

                                      • Powerapps as Tab available for Guests

                                        Powerapps connected to Teams with Tabs should function also for Guests.

                                        • 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.
