  1. 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?

    • 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.

        • 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.

              • 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.

                          • 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…

                                • 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.

                                    • Get it to work

                                      A customer setup a meeting using MS Teams. I usually use Firefox, which is what I opened the link with. The only option presented was to download the disktop app. I downloaded it, but it wouldn't connect to the customer's meeting.

                                      If tried IE, but it only offered to download the app again.

                                      Tried Edge, it was able to start a session and connect. But wasn't able to find a microphone to connect.

                                      I was able to listen to the meeting, but had to type messages to other team mates to provide information and ideas.

                                      What a hindrance! Next time…

                                      • guests without office 365

                                        We currently use a competing team collaboration app that does everything that MS Teams does. We would be interested in switching to MS Teams if only we could invite guests who are not Office 365 users, as we can with our current solution. We use our current solution to not only communicate and collaborate on tasks and project within our organization, but we also create teams for our customers to communicate with members of our team who are serving them, and they need only register with ANY email address.

                                        • Add the ability to Guests to delete and edit their own messages

                                          The title speaks for itself. It's rather odd that owners can give Guests the permission to Create, update and delete channels but they can't delete or edit their own messages.
