  1. a guest should be able to use teams without needing an account


    1. make it possible to easily establish "trust" relationships between Azure AD and Windows AD, so it will be possible to pick users from the "trusted" Windows AD and make them guests. Could be a light version of the normal trust, just enough so customers can get easy access. After the "trust" is established and a remote user is added, that user should get a mail (message) with a link. Clicking that link should bring the user straight into the online version of teams, at the right place and the right view. No questions, no prompts or anything else should be…

  2. 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.

  6. A feature to manage teams where specific users can join

    Regardless with “private” or “public” teams, it would be great that we could manage teams where specific internal users can join.

  8. 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.

  9. Changing the UPN of a guest user is not reflected.

    In the tenant who invited the guest, changing the UPN does not change in the Teams app.

    Although it seems to be a display only, it should be changed so as not to confuse the user.

  10. Guest access that actually works

    We have all sharing and guest access settings enabled but a user that is added as a guest to a team can't see the team and never receives an invite to the team via email. I also cannot message a guest user in the "Chat" tab. Coexistence mode for both tenants are set to "Teams Only."

  12. Allow external users in Teams to have edit permission only for the shared libraries automatically

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams のチーム メンバーが、自動的にグループ サイト全体に編集権限が付与される動作について
    Allow external users in Teams to have edit permission only for the shared libraries automatically


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Teams のチーム メンバーは、外部ユーザーであっても、自動的にグループ サイト全体に編集権限が付与される。
    外部ユーザーに対してのみ、グループ サイト全体ではなく、共有しているライブラリのみに編集可能としたい。
    グループ サイト権限を変更し、ライブラリに固有の権限を付与することにより、希望の動作とはなるが、外部ユーザーが増える度に管理者ユーザーが操作をするには項数がかかり現実的ではない。
    チーム メンバーであっても、グループ サイト全体ではなく、共有ライブラリにのみ、権限が自動付与される機能の追加を希望します。

    It would be great if external users of team member for Teams will be grant edit permission automatically only for shared libraries, instead of entire the group site.
    Admins able to change the permission as a unique permission for the libraries for external users, but in terms of workload, it is inconvenient and unrealistic to do so whenever external users joined the team.

  13. Tenant Friending

    Treat users in your own organization but on different tenant differently than a regular guest. We should not have to add them a a Guest user in our tenant.

  14. Unlimited Guest Access

    Our company is a relatively small company with a large number of client and consultant contacts associated with each of our projects. We need to have a subscription platform developed that will allow us to set up an unlimited number of outside GUESTS to be able to join Teams that we set up for our projects. Our projects can last over 5 to 10 years and will enjoin a very wide range of outside companies.

  15. 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.

  16. Limit guest invitation functionality to specified users

    If we currently want to be able to allow guest invitations for Teams we need to configure Azure AD as follows:
    Members can invite: Yes

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-dependencies

    With that setting all tenant users are eligible to invite guests to the tenant. So how can we achieve to limit the guest invitation functionality to certain users?

    We previously had configured the following:
    Members can invite must be set to: No
    Admins and users in the guest inviter role can invite: Yes

    This resulted in being unable to add any guests to Teams even if the user was holding the guest inviter role.…

  18. Fix Google Login Issue (google IDP)

    Given Google IDP support is already enabled with Azure AD such that we can add Google accounts as Guests to the Azure AD, and those uses can be added as Guests to Teams, it would now be good to close the loop such that they can actually log into the Teams Client.

    Given above, the Teams login does redirect the the Google Authentication provider and seem to authenticate the credentials, but then crashes when thieving the set up the Teams Client main window (on MacOS and iOS anyways).

    Its so close to being useful...

    Per other web searches it believed…

  19. Don't show email addresses for guests from other organisations

    Where a guest is added to a Team from another organisation, their email address is visible to all other team members, and they are identified by the first part of their email address (before @).
    For some types of collaboration it would be good if guests could be added in a way which give them aliases, so they can't see each others' email addresses.

  20. 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).
