  1. Guest users should be able to open notebooks

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

    This should be fixed.

  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…

  4. Rename guest accounts after creation

    We should be able to rename guests after creation without requiring an administrator.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow guests to create profiles (upload image, add title and organization)

    Since this is a collaborative platform, it would be great to have more information about guests who join. Can we have images and title/organization for guests please?

  7. 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…

  9. guest access

    Within every channel I would like to have the option to create a customer(guest) facing side and a non-customer facing side.

    I want to collaborate on project scope and planning with the customer and collaborate on internal pricing, ordering, etc. with just my team, within the same project channel.

  10. 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).

  11. allow guest access to be turned off by default and have the ability to add guest access for individual teams.

    currently if we want any team to have guest access it has to be turned on globally. we want to have it turned off by default and still have ability to allow for designated teams. currently we have to catch each team when created and turn off and then turn it on for designated teams. this is a cumbersome process.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. View the external team in my own tenant that I’m participating as a guest

    We have to switch between tenants when accessing the external team, and there is some business impact.
    So, it would be great to have a feature that can view the external team that I’m participating as a guest in own tenant screen.

  20. Do not automatically add guests to org-wide teams

    When a org-wide team is created, have an option to not automatically add guest accounts.

    We have a org-wide company team for general chit chat, but don't want guests (eg: customers) to join/see this (for obvious reasons haha!)
