  2. don't allow team guest permissions when teams isn't enabled for your organization.

    Grey out the channel guest permission setting within a team or put a link to the admin page where you can change the setting to enable it for your organization.

  3. Forced removal of anonymous users

    Force removal of anonymous usersIf the user who joined from the lobby is an unintended user, I want to be able to be evicted. If unintended users try to rejoin the meeting, they can skip the lobby and join. Anonymous users want to always have to go through the lobby.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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!)

  9. 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.

  17. Allow anonymous guests to chat within a meeting

    Currently, if a guest joins a meeting anonymously, it seems they cannot chat with each other or the organiser.

    If someone wanted to use Teams to webcast to a wide range of users who mostly don't have a Teams account, and may be private citizens rather than organisations, the only option for them to join is anonymously.

    But they then can't use the Chat feature to ask questions (which would be preferable to them using audio on a busy webcast).

    Or is this feature already planned in and coming soon...?

    Thanks,

  18. Guest Access Permission

    It is currently very difficult to control Guess Access Permissions in MS Teams. We only have the options to block creation, editing or deletion of Channels, but a Guest can delete all contents of a Channel and even empty the SharePoint recycle bin.
    The only workaround I have found to date is the following:
    In SharePoint Site Permissions, create a new Permission Level that does not allow file deletion, move the O-365 Group from the Edit Permission Level to the new restricted Permission Level, then manually add Internal Members to the Edit Permission Level.
    The above workaround will allow only…

  19. Rethink Guest Access

    Switching 'tenants" is impractical for most business uses. Your average CEO, or hourly employee, is not going to remember to switch accounts to see negotiations. The fact that you can't see notifications seemlessly from one account is why you need to rethink the guest access layout.

    It would better to see all notifications AND ANSWER THEM from your 'main' account. Not after you switch to your guest account. Efficient communication is thrown to the wayside with the current guest access setup. To me, guest access is useless.
