  1. 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).

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Guest Access Permission

    It is currently very difficult to control Guess Access Permissions in MS Teams. We only have the options to block creation, editing or deletion of Channels, but a Guest can delete all contents of a Channel and even empty the SharePoint recycle bin.
    The only workaround I have found to date is the following:
    In SharePoint Site Permissions, create a new Permission Level that does not allow file deletion, move the O-365 Group from the Edit Permission Level to the new restricted Permission Level, then manually add Internal Members to the Edit Permission Level.
    The above workaround will allow only…

  8. Obtaining access logs for the invited external tenant

    Sometimes users are invited to an external tenant unintentionally, and I would like to avoid them to communicate with external users. Thus, I would like to obtain access logs for the users who are invited to external tenants.

  9. Lets us disable editing for Guests!!!..... please ~:|

    Still can't disable editing for guests... isn't this bothering anybody else??? The "Visitors" settings when sharing files or within SharePoint don't correlate at all with Guests in Teams (which I'm sure they are supposed to)... The only way I can find to disable editing for Guests is to disable editing for Members on every file, one at a time, but then the Members can't edit the files either..... This is ridiculous, right? There should be a big giant switch in the Team settings that says "Allow Guests to edit files".... but there isn't :[

  10. Not having to switch between different team logins

    Going from Skype to Teams I run into the problem that external Team guests have to switch to our organization Team in order to get our messages. In Skype this is transparent and once you have connected you can have a direct chat without having to switch to another team login. Today we cannot trust the external guests to see our messages otherwise. Why can't Teams work as Skype - whithout the switching? Until Teams is as transparent as Skype is, we cannot fully use it in the organization and will have to keep using Skype and Slack.

  11. Reinvent Guest Access

    Guest Access is no longer generic access. Incorporate measures to improve and facilitate many unique guest experiences to energize employees and nurture collaboration. Have a few minutes to chat on our server? Impromptu or scheduled guest chats facilitate more intimate and frequent collaborations.

  12. Guest Access for Meetings, Calls and Videocalls

    It's important to be able to call and schedule meetings with clients.

    I use Teams with my company, and invite clients as Guests so he can have a look at the progress of his project.

    It's important to be able to have meetings with your clients.

  13. 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'.

  14. ライブイベントに組織外のユーザも発表者として追加したい

    社内主催のセミナーだったり、コミュニティの勉強会などで

    開催場所の壁を取り払い、世界中から参加できるようなライブイベントをTeamsを使って実施したいのです。

    既にライブイベントという機能でブロードキャスト可能ではありますが

    組織外のユーザを発表者として招待できないため、発表者がどうしても組織内に限定されてしまいます。

    Teams会議では組織外のユーザも発表者として参加させることができるので

    ライブイベントでも同様のことができるようにしていただけないでしょうか?

  15. team licence for guest users

    A low-cost licence to apply to any guest users, to give them access to Teams and OneDrive with sync, strictly within the context of Teams to which they belong. This could drive a middle-ground usage, for "power-user" guests that need more features, but without having to add them to our tenant or pay a full licence since a guest should not have a mailbox, etc.

  17. 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.
