  2. Trying to add an external member to the team results in error: "You are not authorized"

    Microsoft Teams indicates that I can add external members: "You can also add people outside your organization as guests by typing their email addresses.". However, when I try to add an external member with an Office 365 work account, I get an error message "You are not authorized".

  4. Guest access expiry configuration

    We would like to see some kind of configuration setting for guest access to expire after a specified period of time. Often times teams change and reorganize in a way that it may not be clear if a guest user still should have access. We work with contractors and consultants for a specified period of time and it would be beneficial for us to grant access to a contractor who might only be working with us for 6 months or so. When that contract is up then all access to Teams or any shared files is revoked. This would help…

  5. Let Guest accounts be Team Owners, even if I have to license them.

    Let Guest accounts be Team Owners, even if I have to license them.

    Guests can be important Team members also, requiring the full access and functionality of Teams.

    Creating another login in my tenant for them and asking them to switch accounts is a poor solution.

  6. Do not allow adding guests to a Team from people picker if guest access is disabled

    When guest access is disabled for Microsoft Teams, do not allow the ability for members to add a Guest. This option is disabled by default and can be viewed/activated by going to:

    Admin Center -> Settings -> Services & add-ins -> Microsoft Teams -> Settings by user/license type

    This is a source of confusion for end users because it allows members to specify a guest user by email address in the people picker control. The Teams application then proceeds to sends the email to the guest user, only to have the guest not be able to view the Team after…

  10. Manage guest access for team-level from Microsoft Teams admin center

    We need to use Azure Active Directory connected Windows PowerShell to perform guest access setting for each team in Microsoft Teams, which is a quite complex process.
    I would like you to enable team-level guest access control in Microsoft Teams admin center to easily manage guest access approval and blocking.

  11. Allow a keyboard control for guest user

  12. Communication between internal organization and external at the same time without toggle

    When having direct communications with other organizations, it's an annoyance that you have to toggle between your internal org and external. You need to be able to quickly communicate with everyone that you would normally communicate with in a normal day. If this is the Business solution MS is going with, it needs to meet the immediate and obvious business needs.

    Further options to restrict file uploads when guests are participating in another separate tenant as a guest user


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams において、ゲストを招待したテナントではゲスト ユーザーに対してファイルのアップロードなどを SharePoint Online のアクセス権限をカスタマイズすることで制御は可能だが、ゲスト ユーザーのテナント側で別テナントにゲストとして参加している際のファイルのアップロードなどを制御することができない。
    ゲストとして参加しているテナントにてファイルのアップロードが許可されていると、自テナント内の情報などを不用意に別テナントに共有される恐れがあるため、ゲストとして参加した際のファイルのアップロードを制御する機能の拡充を希望します。
    It is possible to restrict file uploads in Teams for guest users from other tenants, by customizing access rights in SharePoint Online, however there is no way to restrict file uploads specifically in cases where the guest user in question is also in another separate tenant as a guest user.
    If file uploads on this other tenant are permitted, it is possible for them to share…

    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…

  17. Support Guest Comment and Upload Functionality in Teams

    As of the latest update, Guest users have almost full functionality in planner and teams in terms of creating and editing tasks. However the 2 missing pieces of functionality are:
    -Guest Users Cannot add Comments to tasks.
    -Guest users cannot upload a file to tasks, they can only upload from a link or sharepoint.

    Please add these functionalities.

  18. Allow guests to create profiles (upload image, add title and organization)

    Since this is a collaborative platform, it would be great to have more information about guests who join. Can we have images and title/organization for guests please?
