  1. Provide admin option to default guest access to false

    The existing guidance in https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Allow-or-Block-Guest-Users-from-a-Specific-Team-in-Microsoft/td-p/175918 to allow guest access, but block from specific teams is good, but also needs an 'opposite' option.

    It would be ideal (due to regulations we have to follow) to provide a way to default guest access to off, but then allow teams that have been guest enabled to work as they do currently.

  2. guest acount lifecycle management

    The pool of guest accounts grows quickly with temporary accounts. For GDPR, but also for housekeeping, a function for guest account lifecycle management is needed, where guest confirm the continued usage or delete of the account. A similar feature is in for access review - for the group / team membership. Similar feature is required for the account as well.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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 !

  13. Add external user to a team over Azure AD an not through guest invitation

    Currently you have to activate the guest access option to add a guest user that has been created on Azure AD. It would very helpful to have this option without the guest access activated to avoid that every user could invite anyone to a team.

  14. Allow to popup an agreement form that needs to be signed when a guest user joins a team

    Allow for a possibility to pop up an agreement form or for example an NDA form that the guest has to sign before being allowed to join a team as a guest

  15. 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.

  16. Member of organisation can't acces team because of wrond Office version

    I have added several of our consultants with their @company address, but some of them don't have the right Office version so they can't acces MS Teams. Because they have a @company address, they can't access as a guest also...

    How to solve this problem?!

  17. 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.
