  1. 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.

  3. Show Teams from Guest Tenant in Sections rather than switching Tenant

    Instead of having to switch Tenant, why not add a section Guest where Teams from other Tenants are displayed while still displaying our home tenant Teams.

  4. Alerts in guest tenants

    When you've been given access to a team as a guest there is currently no way to be alerted. All the little red notification only appear when you visit the guest team's tenant within Microsoft Teams. A notification on the account in "Your Accounts" would probably work.

  6. Provide central management for Guests invited in Teams

    Current for guests invited in Teams, we can see a Guest contacts will be created in O365 Admin Portal --> Users --> Guest users. However, there is no detailed information showing who invited the Guest, which Teams group this Guest belongs to and there is no easy way to manage these Guests accordingly.

    We would like to have central management feature for Guest users created in Teams.

  8. Allow to share screen to External Contacts directly through Chat

    Allow to share screen to External Contacts directly through Chat. Currently we can only share our screen to external contacts when in a meeting. We can share screen to our internal colleagues but not to External Users. We will be needing to add them as a Guest Users first.

    To be GDPR compliant we would like to hide the guests e-mail adresses by default in Teams.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. Guest Access with Team Code or Teams Link

    Allow Guest Access users to easily join via Team Code or link to Teams Channel. Adding guests one by one can be tiring when you're inviting hundreds of guests to a Team.

  13. Lobby

    If anonymous users are in the lobby (e.g. joining by first name only), it would be good to have a feature that allows communicating with users waiting in the lobby for identification (e.g. ask them to provide additional informaiton who they are). At present, you only have accept/reject option.

  15. Limit guest invitation functionality to specified users

    If we currently want to be able to allow guest invitations for Teams we need to configure Azure AD as follows:
    Members can invite: Yes

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-dependencies

    With that setting all tenant users are eligible to invite guests to the tenant. So how can we achieve to limit the guest invitation functionality to certain users?

    We previously had configured the following:
    Members can invite must be set to: No
    Admins and users in the guest inviter role can invite: Yes

    This resulted in being unable to add any guests to Teams even if the user was holding the guest inviter role.…

  16. Guest Display Name

    How do you change the Display name of a guest AFTER the invitation is sent? There must be an easier way than this:

  17. 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.

  18. Allow Guests to Share Screen

    While guests can now join a Team meeting, there is no "promote to presenter" option to allow them to share their screen. Without this, I'm forced to fall back to Hangouts or Zoom.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
