  1. Flesh out the external user feature by supporting additional information for those users, such as name, title, location, contact info, etc.

    Currently, outside users (guests) reflect only the email address used to add them to the Teams site. Need more info, such as actual user name, company/location, contact info if we're going to communicate and collaborate effectively.

  2. 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

  3. 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 !

  5. 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.

  6. Please provide the status of Guests in a Team

    Provide the status for Guests in a Team, so that their status is available for the team members.
    Also the Guests should see the status of the other members of the team.

  7. 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…

  9. Revamp guest access - it's not useful as it is now

    There are several problems with Guest Access with MS Teams as it is implemented today. First, it should not require another tenant to hold guest access. Not everyone has Teams. Anyone should be capable to be invited to take part in Teams. Second, this notion of switching org's is very intrusive. It just doesn't work. If someone makes a new post or shares a new file that you're a guest in, you don't get a notification. Third, if you're in a meeting and you need to look for a file that is in an org you're a Guest in, you're…

  11. Can No Longer Connect as a Guest to an MS Teams Site (Caused by 1803 *** Update??)

    Don't know if it has anything to do with the 6/27/18 Windows 1803 Cumulative Update, but after that update, I can no longer connect as a Guest to a Microsoft Teams site. Signing out, signing in, uninstalling the Teams app, reinstalling, signing out, signing in are all to no avail. I am signed in as a Microsoft Guest but if I click Manage Teams, I get the message that I am currently not a member of any teams. OTH, I can connect to the relevant MS Teams site just fine using the Android Teams app, post, LIKE posts, etc. The…

  12. 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

  14. 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.

  19. Option to skip Getting Started screens on Guest access

    Whenever you accept an invitation to join a Team as a guest, you have to click Next through the getting started screens (four of them?). Add a Skip option on the first screen to bypass seeing the rest of them, if you are already familiar with Guest access (usually because you are already a guest in other Teams).

  20. When inviting a guest user to be a team member, the function controls not to send an invitation email to the guest user.

    I would like to have a setting that allows me to control whether or not to send an invitation email.
