  2. lack of retention and controls for users when they guest into other tenant

    When our Teams users guest into another company's tenant, our tenant doesn't capture the eComms for private or channel chats and channel files viewed, edited, or shared which could present compliance, retention, auditing and legal issues.Retaining that data , providing audit logs showing who guested into which tenants when, being able to disable our users ability to guest into other company's tenants and being able to configure whitelists of allowable tenants for our users to guest into along with graph apis for pulling the captured retention data is a must have,

  4. Customize the guest invitation e-mail for a team (not meeting)

    It would've been nice to be able to customize the e-mai which is sent out when I invite a guest (external) to at team in Microsoft Teams. In the Teams Admin portal I can customize a few minor attributes for the Meeting invitation, but not for the Team invitation.

    As it is now, there is no way for the recipient to know which company sent the invitaton, as only the name for the team and the sender is specific - every other element of the e-mail is very "Microsoft specific".

    A logo, privacy text, text or link to guidelines -…

  6. Block the internal user accessing the external tenant as guest

    For the security perspective, I would like to block internal users to access the external tenant by accepting the invitation as a guest, because it might trigger the information leak from our organization. Please implement a feature to block external access as a guest.

  9. Restrict the guest users to call or chat

    Teams setting currently allows us to restrict calls or chats from guest users to internal users, but it doesn’t allow us to restrict vice versa. I would ask you to allow us to restrict internal users to call or chat to guests.

  14. Allow guests to be in Teams Only mode when Coexistence mode is Skype for Business

    Allow guests to be in Teams Only mode when Coexistence mode is Skype for Business*

    This will allow Guests access to teams individual chat.

    Currently if you move from Islands mode to a SfB mode you will break chat for all Guests users in your tenant

  15. Do not automatically add guests to org-wide teams

    When a org-wide team is created, have an option to not automatically add guest accounts.

    We have a org-wide company team for general chit chat, but don't want guests (eg: customers) to join/see this (for obvious reasons haha!)

  17. Guest access profile edit

    In Team when inviting a Guest from another organization, the guest shows up only as alias, making it difficult to identify them. The guest access invite should allow the guest to edit the profile to include a picture, or change the avatar name. If the guest is federated or has their own teams, then the profile should to the guest site.

  18. Please make it possible to chat with guests in an regular 1on1 chat without having to add them to a team.

    Please make it possible to chat with guests in an regular 1on1 chat without having to add them to a team. The workarounds like creating internal emails for guests or setting up a calendar meeting every time come with additional problems.
