  1. Remove 5 Guests Per user Limit

    The limitation of 5 Guest access maximum per paying user is absurd : On one hand you provide Free TEAMS and on the other hand if we want to create Teams with many external people it is blocked. At least we should not have a limit for external users that are Office 365 User on another tenant as they already pay for teams!!! Otherwise please provide a GUEST subscription that we can buy for our guests. I don't understand this limitation as we can share document without limitation with everyone!!!

  2. 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).

    Related issue about letting them add their own avatars

  4. 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".

  5. Option to decline guest invitation, or leave external organization without accepting permission page for guest

    When there is suspected external org invite our users to be the guests, there are only two way to leave.


    1. fully accept the invitation and choose "leave organization" in the Access Panel.

    2. contact external organization to delete our users from AAD

    However, these two options are both not ideal when it comes to an unknown external organization, and it might potentially expose our users to the attackers.

    I hope there could be a way to decline the guest invitation without fully accepting it first, and make the drop down option to switch to external org disappear.

  6. Allow presenter to give control to someone accessing from an iPad.

    When I am doing telehealth I need my students to be able to access the website we go to. If that student only has an iPad, it will not allow it.

  8. Feature that general users can decline to access to an external tenant team if they are invited as guests

    Sometime our internal users are unintentionally invited to an external tenant team as a guest. We would request you to provide a feature that general users can decline to access to an external tenant team as we would like our users not to join any unintended external tenant team.

  10. Take out need for guests to sign in to Microsoft account!!

    I have heard that this is the main reason why people prefer other programs over Microsoft, (GoToMeetings only requires download and an email). Its very frustrating when people have to sign into so many things. Right when your about to have a BUSY meeting, guests have to sign in, download the Teams app, sign into an unnecessary Microsoft guest account, then they forgot their password, go to reset it, etc etc. Meeting is over and customer is frustrated!! Business LOST to "GoToMeeting" or google hangouts or whoever is the next startup!

    When a guest gets an email, they should be…

  11. Allow removing entries from the Tenant picker

    If a user has been invited to another tenant, that tenant will show on the Teams tenant picker dropdown. If that user later wants to leave that tenant, there doesn't appear to be a way for the user to do that.

    I would request you allow users to remove themselves from other tenants they have joined. Similar to how a user can leave a Team they have joined.

  12. 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…

  13. Allow external (guest) to view shifts.

    We have external clients who need to be aware of our shifts. Could it be possible to allow a view only of the shifts.
    The view in the mobile app would be best as this looks much cleaner and has less clutter to it.
    Making it sharp and clear for external clients who just want to view.
    Also could you add a guest into a shift as sometimes external workers may be required to fill a shift.
    Thanks

  14. Allow guest users to search files

    Internal users can see three tabs, Messages, People and Files when they input keywords in the search bar. However, guest users can only see two tabs, Messages and People. The Files tab is not shown to guest users when they search keywords. So, it would be great that guest users can search files.

  18. Hide or show the “Guest” tag next to the display name of guest user

    I would like to choose to display or hide the “Guest” tag depending on the invited tenant. This is shown next to the display name of guest when inviting a guest.

  19. Allow a keyboard control for guest user

    I'd like to have the option to give a keyboard control to a guest user if the user have a Teams application installed. It worked a month ago but doesn't work anymore.
    It works ok on Skype for Business

  20. 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.
