    • Guest users are not shown in the list of participants

      There are currently 2 participants in the meeting: Tallinn Videolab 1 (me) and a guest (my other PC, using Teams on Web). I can see the guest's camera image, but I cannot see his name (see the screenshot). The list of participants looks like I was the only one in the meeting, which is not true.

      • 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.

        • Problems with setting up a Team with Guest Members

          Activating/Enabling a Group with Guests Team Members is not possible without support. Should be as easy and intuitive as in Slack.

            • guest invitation URL simplification

              We often have people who will need to enter a URL manually to join a meeting (from outside our company). Having a more human-input-friendly version of the invite URL would be greatly beneficial.

              • Guest access

                Hi
                This is not an idea this is feedback on how Microsoft Teams works. When you tell subscribers they can provide guest access to your apps (Microsoft Teams) I suggest you do not hide the limitation. You should have also announced that there is a limit of 5 Guest accounts per licensed user. This would have made it much easier to assess the usefulness of the change to your subscribers. Which is pretty much none. It is frustrating to start planning business processes around an app like Teams to find the limitation makes it worthless for the business process.

                • Eliminate need for Teams app download for guest access

                  Regarding the Teams app, we see that you are enabling guest access in more simplified ways. That is very helpful.

                  However, we are interested in using Teams for prospecting new clients and find it cumbersome to request that they download the Teams App. Is MS planning on a future model where there is an online version of Teams for guest users that does not require a download for guest users?

                  • Guest Access in an Educational Setting

                    Below are a few items I'm looking for feedback or suggestions on.

                    1. Ability to create a class code to only allow visibility to the assignments page ... OR ... Have a check box under "guest permissions" where I can allow visibility to that page for parents / instructional assistants.

                    2. Ability to block a student from seeing another students post under "conversations" until they post?

                    3. Grade Syncing? Ability to sync grades with Skyward grading system?

                          • Easy way to control which team can have guests

                            Today, enabling guest access is a tenant level setting and you don't get the option out of the box to control it. It would be nice if you can let an admin see the list of all teams and then have the ability to select a set of specific teams to be able to have the capability to add guests.

                            • Add message when adding a user/guest when its complete.

                              When adding users/guests add a message saying its complete. Only thing it does now is the close button goes active. I can see this confusing people. It gives a message when it fails.

                              • Add guidance in "add members" when guest access is not enabled

                                Currently when a user goes to add a member, there's no guidance or indication about adding guests by email address. This means it looks like Teams doesn't allow external guests.

                                It would be great if when guest access is switched off at the tenant level, there was a message under the member search bar saying "Want to add guests? Ask your IT admin to enable guests in Teams". Maybe this could have a link too?

                                This feature would prevent confusion over whether guests can be added for collaboration in Teams - many users don't know that this is possible and…

                                • 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.

                                        • unable to add people to the free teams

                                          I have signed for the Free version of Teams using my personal Microsoft account and I am unable to add people to a Team or to my Org in the Free version of Teams. When trying to invite someone I get an error that says "We're having trouble sending the invitations. Please try again later". No matter how many times I try, it doesn't work. I even created a new Free-Teams account and got the same result with that one too. Please help.
