  1. Invite external users (guests) during MS Teams meeting

    Currently, organizers can only invite organization-affiliated members to join the meeting while the meeting is running. For external users, you have to copy the meeting link, paste it into an email and send it. This is very inconvenient. It would be good to permit (like you can in the invite to the meeting) simply type the email addresses of extenal users while being in a meeting to also invite them.

  2. Ability to invite non-members to chat and meetings whilst restricting access to all other content.

    To have the ability to invite non-members to a private channel meeting or chat whilst restricting their access to all other content. Their inactivity in a chat or meeting will disconnect them permanently after a set period, e.g. 60 minutes.

  3. Guest functionality makes for scizofrenic messaging

    When you are added as a guest to another tenant, you will by default appear in search with your email (user@company.com) in the internal search results.

    Chats sent to "internal" results of a guest will be stuck in the guest tenant until the user intentionally revisits that tenant. There is no quickly visible "external message" option - the end user has to know about this limitation, click "search externally" then send the message to have it deliver.

    This is extremely unintuitive and leads to a scizofrenic messaging experience once you get added across a number of organizations and…

  5. Support Guest Comment and Upload Functionality in Teams

    As of the latest update, Guest users have almost full functionality in planner and teams in terms of creating and editing tasks. However the 2 missing pieces of functionality are:
    -Guest Users Cannot add Comments to tasks.
    -Guest users cannot upload a file to tasks, they can only upload from a link or sharepoint.

    Please add these functionalities.

  6. Take out need for guests to sign in to Microsoft account!!

    I have heard that this is the main reason why people prefer other programs over Microsoft, (GoToMeetings only requires download and an email). Its very frustrating when people have to sign into so many things. Right when your about to have a BUSY meeting, guests have to sign in, download the Teams app, sign into an unnecessary Microsoft guest account, then they forgot their password, go to reset it, etc etc. Meeting is over and customer is frustrated!! Business LOST to "GoToMeeting" or google hangouts or whoever is the next startup!

    When a guest gets an email, they should be…

  8. Guest users should be able to open notebooks

    When guest users try to access notebooks they receive error messages.

    This should be fixed.

  9. removing the need to do tenant switching when you participate in another organization's teams as a guest.

    Hello. We have been trying to get our university community to adopt Teams as a collaboration suite. We run into the problem that external/guest Team users have to switch to our organization/tenant to take part in the relevant Teams in order to collaborate with us. The same also applies with our users participating as guests in other organisations. We are getting feedback from external partners, consultants and even from some of our own faculties that this not the best user experience. We also get comments that other tools on the market (even Microsoft skype for business) handle it in a…

  10. Multi organization visualization

    Visualization with multi account (diff organizations) is not very good. It takes to much time switching the organization, and back again. Please make all the accounts visible at any time - in a folder og tab view (or any better idea :) )

  11. Manage guest access for team-level from Microsoft Teams admin center

    We need to use Azure Active Directory connected Windows PowerShell to perform guest access setting for each team in Microsoft Teams, which is a quite complex process.
    I would like you to enable team-level guest access control in Microsoft Teams admin center to easily manage guest access approval and blocking.

  12. Separate Teams Guests from SharePoint Guests

    If we add guests to the Microsoft Team, this seems to add them to the Office 365 group with read/write access to the SP site as well. We want to be able to have a guest on the Team but not necessarily also be able to access the corresponding SharePoint site.

    Adding guest to the Team adds that guest user to the corresponding office 365 group. If we have the office 365 group as a "member" on the SP site (allowing write access to SP) there is no way to make the "guests" in that group read only.

  13. Guest access expiry configuration

    We would like to see some kind of configuration setting for guest access to expire after a specified period of time. Often times teams change and reorganize in a way that it may not be clear if a guest user still should have access. We work with contractors and consultants for a specified period of time and it would be beneficial for us to grant access to a contractor who might only be working with us for 6 months or so. When that contract is up then all access to Teams or any shared files is revoked. This would help…

  17. Guest access - more control and more permissions

    There are several different levels of 'guest' but very little control over assigning rights and permissions. Guests might range from an external consultant running a project to a supplier invited to view an RFP. Both would have completely different requirements. There needs to be the ability to create several different guest roles and have granular control over access to sharepoint assets. Let us manage access to our own tenancy for guest users!

  19. Allow guests to see avatars

    It has been brought to my attention that guests can't see avatars at all. Please make this an option (or if one exists that I do not know of please tell me).

  20. Option to skip Getting Started screens on Guest access

    Whenever you accept an invitation to join a Team as a guest, you have to click Next through the getting started screens (four of them?). Add a Skip option on the first screen to bypass seeing the rest of them, if you are already familiar with Guest access (usually because you are already a guest in other Teams).
