    • Need Ability to Block Organization

      I attempted to follow this documentation:
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/b2b/leave-the-organization

      However, I do not have this section either in my menu or profile.

      I have an issue where my work email was added as a guest to another organization, but I do not want to accept their TOS nor participate in their Team. As a result, I am not joined to their organization, leaving me with no option to leave or block their organization from generating notifications in my Teams client or online.

      • Please provide the status of Guests in a Team

        Provide the status for Guests in a Team, so that their status is available for the team members.
        Also the Guests should see the status of the other members of the team.

          • Allow a keyboard control for guest user

            I'd like to have the option to give a keyboard control to a guest user if the user have a Teams application installed. It worked a month ago but doesn't work anymore.
            It works ok on Skype for Business

            • Can not invite as an external user in the Office 365 groups if the UPN and primary SMTP address are different.

              I want to invite people who are different from UPN and primary SMTP address as external user of Teams.
              However, UPN must be registered in the secondary SMTP address.

              • Better integration with Guest accounts

                Several team members who access via guest accounts have been experiencing frequent and persistent issues being able to connect to teams and access content. I would like to see a better user experience for guest users and more information to them (better error messages) when they are denied access on how to remediate.

                • Allow removing entries from the Tenant picker

                  If a user has been invited to another tenant, that tenant will show on the Teams tenant picker dropdown. If that user later wants to leave that tenant, there doesn't appear to be a way for the user to do that.

                  I would request you allow users to remove themselves from other tenants they have joined. Similar to how a user can leave a Team they have joined.

                  • chat with guest

                    How can I have a private chat with guest user in Teams, without inviting him/her into specific team?

                    • Allow external users to use the Teams mobile app

                      I would like that my guests are able to use the Teams app too, since that really would allow all team members to have the full experience of teams and be able to collaborate faster. This not being available means all external users are tied to their computers to collaborate with people in my organization, and that limits this service a lot. Please vote if you feel the same way.

                      • Allow Members to add Guests

                        Currently only Owners of a Team are allowed to add Guests to the Team. It should be possible for Members of a Team to Add Guests as well (or ideally, have a Toggle in the Admin Center, where it is possible for the Admin to allow Members to invite Guests)

                          Currently you cannot add a guest to a meeting if you started the meeting with the "meet now" feature. Please allow this ability.

                            • Remove 5 Guests Per user Limit

                              The limitation of 5 Guest access maximum per paying user is absurd : On one hand you provide Free TEAMS and on the other hand if we want to create Teams with many external people it is blocked. At least we should not have a limit for external users that are Office 365 User on another tenant as they already pay for teams!!! Otherwise please provide a GUEST subscription that we can buy for our guests. I don't understand this limitation as we can share document without limitation with everyone!!!

                              • Missing tabs for Guests on Android

                                We have several teams with guests, and they are unable to see certain tabs (Wiki, Files, additional file libraries, Excel tabs, etc..) when using the Android app. These tabs appear when the guest is on a PC or an iOS device.

                                The only thing that is shown is 'Chat' and 'More'. 'More' contains some Web Link Tabs that have been created.

                                To get around this, I have obtained the SharePoint document library URL and added it as a 'Web Page Tab'.

                                      • More control over guest user interaction

                                        We are using Teams as a project management tool and primarily with guest users/accounts. In many cases our guest users are likely not using Teams for any other purpose other than interacting with us on our projects. With that in mind:

                                        It would be nice to have greater control over the default notification settings for guest users. Since our guest users aren’t normally using Teams as part of their daily workflow we need them to receive email notifications for any type of update in Teams to direct their attention to the app. And, in most cases, I would like an…

                                        • Security controls on teams invitaion. From external domains

                                          To day we can whitelist domains to send invitations to external parties to collaborate in teams . Where as when other external domain user ex :xyz .com sent a guest access to abc.com user there are no security controls at tenant level to prevent user to switch to external tenants in teams , since user collaboration is stored in other company tenants it’s a gap for legal to track the content in any case of legal holds .
                                          It would be good if whitelisting capabilities for such scenarios or store a copy of abc.com user (only) conversations or files in…
