  1. Invite external users (guests) during MS Teams meeting

    Currently, organizers can only invite organization-affiliated members to join the meeting while the meeting is running. For external users, you have to copy the meeting link, paste it into an email and send it. This is very inconvenient. It would be good to permit (like you can in the invite to the meeting) simply type the email addresses of extenal users while being in a meeting to also invite them.

  2. Please enable an audit feature for lobby admits

    Please add audit functionality for Teams for who admitted people from the lobby and what time they were admitted.

    This allows us to add who audit who was in a meeting from outside our org or federated orgs.

  4. Hide guest email address from other guests

    Would like to use Teams as a platform to interact with coworkers and employees that don't have a company email or Office 365 account. The only thing preventing this from happening, is that their private/personal email addresses are shared with others. To protect their privacy, I'd like the ability to hide their contact info from other guests.

  5. Sharing screens rather than sharing applications

    When sharing the screen, in fact the screen is not shared but the application is shared with the other side. It means, if the host user drags other application over the shared application in that screen, the guest still sees the older application not the one dragged over. Every time, the host should stop sharing and re-do sharing if they want to share a new application.

  6. I want you to use a method that does not require you to sign in when you leave the tenant invited as a guest user in the Azure portal.

  7. Enable Remote control for external contacts(Guests) when you share your screen

    Right now, if you have a Meeting with someone that is not part of your Tenant, you only can share your screen to present what are you seeing at your screen; but if you want that the guest could take remote control of your screen this cannot be performed.

    Please enable remote control for external contacts (Guest) in order to use Teams instead of Join.me or Teamviewer

  8. Specify visibilty / access for channels, files, tabs for guests and implement this in templates

    Hi there,

    our team collaborates with client in every project (otherwise there would be no project). We need teams to give us the ability to specify very easily and very clearly (in a visible way) which parts of a team, the client can see. "Basecamp" does am excellent job at this, also highlighting the files, that the client can see.

    Right now, when we invitie a client to the team, the client automatically has access to everything, except for private channels. But it takes a lot of effort to plan in advance which parts (channels) of the team should be…

    It would be great if admins could block anonymous users from sending/receiving/downloading the image in the chat.

  10. Block the guest access on organization-wide while allowing the guest access to the certain team

    I would like to block the guest access on organization-wide while allowing the guest access to only the certain team in Teams.
    Slack have similar settings, so it would be great if Teams would have the feature.

  11. Switch between display of external tenants on the Teams screen

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams 画面の外部テナント切替表示について
    Switch between display of external tenants on the Teams screen


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、ゲストとして外部テナントの Microsoft Teams チームに招待され、参加した場合、Microsoft Teams 画面右上のアイコン付近にゲストとして参加している外部テナントに切り替える項目が表示される。
    ゲストとして参加した外部テナントのチームから脱退、または参加している外部テナントのMicrosoft Teams チームが削除された際も、Microsoft Teams 画面上のゲストとして参加していた外部テナントの表示は残存し、現状は削除することができない。
    不要になった外部テナント切替表示を削除する機能の追加を希望します。

    Currently, if you are invited to a team by an external tenant as a guest, and join, an item in the top right, near your icon, appears allowing you to switch to the external tenant you’re participating in as a guest.
    If you leave the external tenant team which you are participating in as a guest, or if an external tenant Teams team you are in is deleted, the icon…

  12. "Cannot request a keyboard control from the guest user"

    Hello,

    My team would like to replace WebEx with Teams for Customer Support calls, but not all of our Customers have or use Teams logins. And, although Guest users can join a Teams meeting and share their desktops, they are unable to share control of their desktops. To more efficiently diagnose and resolve issues, we need to be able to request control of their shared desktops.

    On the Sharing menu, the Guest login is unable to "Give control" and as the meeting organizer I get a "Requesting control is disabled by sharer company's administrator" error when clicking the "Request control"…

  14. Send a notification to admins when a guest user joined in a team

    I would like the system to send admins a notification when a guest user joined in a team. For the security perspective, I would like to check when and which guest user joined in a team. So, it would be convenient if the system let us know about it automatically.

  15. Ability to edit the "Join a Microsoft Teams meeting" hyperlink during the initial invitation email

    We need the ability to edit the "Join a Microsoft Teams meeting" hyperlink before sending the invitation email to make it easier to see which company you are joining

    For example, I want to do something like "Yamato Construction Co., Ltd."

  16. Make Anonymous Access More Granular

    Rather than have anonymous access just On/Off globally, it would be very helpful for admins to be able allow internal user or team exceptions for anonymous access. For example, allow anonymous access for the HR department to conduct video interviews while disabling anonymous access for all other internal users.

  18. For teaching with MS Teams, make it possible to lock down the whiteboard so only one person can annotate.

    I want to be able to teach (using the white board with students being able to see annotations real time wiithout them being able to annotate). I also want to be able to turn on and off a students ability to annotate the whiteboard so that during Q&A they can write on the board.

  19. Allow guest users with Gmail or Yahoo email address to join in a meeting in Microsoft Teams

    Allow guest users with Gmail or Yahoo email address to join in a meeting in Microsoft Teams. It is more simple to join any meeting without the need to add them to the Organisation. Thanks!

  20. Lobby

    If anonymous users are in the lobby (e.g. joining by first name only), it would be good to have a feature that allows communicating with users waiting in the lobby for identification (e.g. ask them to provide additional informaiton who they are). At present, you only have accept/reject option.
