  1. Mass Anonymous Guest Access

    I wanted to suggest the addition of true guest access, that is to say unauthenticated access to Teams. I was thinking that a URL would allow access to an open Team that would allow users to use it as a "forum".

    Our business need is using teams for our organization internally as a forum for users who've completed training.

    • I would like to be able to see all the teams (including Guest teams) I am in from the Team App.

      I would like to be able to see all the teams (including Guest teams) I am in from the Team App rather than having to switch views

      • Flesh out the external user feature by supporting additional information for those users, such as name, title, location, contact info, etc.

        Currently, outside users (guests) reflect only the email address used to add them to the Teams site. Need more info, such as actual user name, company/location, contact info if we're going to communicate and collaborate effectively.

          • Product Not usable

            Again, MS has done a very poor job with Teams. No one thinks over there at MS and everyone seems to develop everything Half A$$

            Using Skype for business All contacts including other Skype contacts that are not Skype for business are able to be communicated with.

            Teams sucks, as it is a Silo and does not allow chatting with any other Skype users except for business.

            It is extremely buggy when moving to teams only as no contacts or favorites are carried over and you are forcing everyone to re-setup everything all over again.

            You loose all call logs…

            • Rename guest accounts after creation

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

              • Allow admins and Teams owner the ability to turn guest sharing on/off for selected Teams

                Currently Guest Access seems to be either On or Off for all Teams, we need the ability to allow owners to turn it On or Off when needed to. Currently both SharePoint and O365 Groups have this ability. This feature will make sure that users/owners don't accidentally invite external users to Internal Teams.

                • 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.

                  • 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'.

                    • guest avatar inconsistent

                      I've figured out how to go to Azure Active Directory to add photos of our guests, which is cumbersome but helpful. What I don't understand is why their photo doesn't consistently appear alongside their name.

                      Seems like a glitch in the matrix to me

                      • Conditional access for non-compliant devices or disable file download for guests

                        We use teams to collaborate with external vendors, and would like a way to restrict guest from downloading everything off of the sharepoint sites where files are stored.
                        There is no way to restrict the data leakage for guests accounts, sometime like the exchange online / sharepoint online access for non compliant devices would be awesome way to get around this.

                          • federation

                            I need to connect teams with two of our subsidiary companies that are different tenants on Office365. We do NOT want to switch accounts using Guest Account feature on Teams. We want to stay on each tenants account and freely interact with trasted tenants.

                            • Give acces to "Folder" search to guest members

                              When guests uses the research bar on teams, they can only look into members or conversations. As real members we can also look into folder. This option could be really great for guest !

                              • switch org

                                I have two teams managed by separate O365 tenants. One set of folks from tenant A has been guest access to tenant B. However, as a member of tenant A there is no simple way to participate in both teams of A and B. I should be able to see the combined list of teams from both tenants from the app.

                                    • Add better visabilty for Guest access

                                      The visability to teams where I act as guest has rooms for some improvements.
                                      Instead of adding the external teams in the top right I would l like to add them to the teams panel like I can add more accounts in Outlook. In that case the guest users will have a much better visability to the external teams they are connected to. To make it clear you could add a the tenant name into parenteces.
