  1. Guest access - more control and more permissions

    There are several different levels of 'guest' but very little control over assigning rights and permissions. Guests might range from an external consultant running a project to a supplier invited to view an RFP. Both would have completely different requirements. There needs to be the ability to create several different guest roles and have granular control over access to sharepoint assets. Let us manage access to our own tenancy for guest users!

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

  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.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow certain owners to manage to add guest users

    We allow everyone to create a public team, we do not restrict them to create it. So we would prefer to restrict certain owners to invite guests, while the current behavior allows administrators only to invite guests.

  11. guest access - switching tenants error

    Error switching tenants for guest access. My account has been invited to two different guest teams. One works, the othe fails during authentication.

  12. Allow admins to manage users who are not invited the meeting and join the meeting by using the meeting URL

    Currently, users who knows the meeting URL can join the meeting without any restriction even they are not invited. From management point of view, we believe that we should control attendees who would join the meeting via the meeting URL. So, it would be great if admins could have a feature to manage users who have joined in the meeting via the meeting URL.

  15. Specify visibilty / access for channels, files, tabs for guests and implement this in templates

    Hi there,

    our team collaborates with client in every project (otherwise there would be no project). We need teams to give us the ability to specify very easily and very clearly (in a visible way) which parts of a team, the client can see. "Basecamp" does am excellent job at this, also highlighting the files, that the client can see.

    Right now, when we invitie a client to the team, the client automatically has access to everything, except for private channels. But it takes a lot of effort to plan in advance which parts (channels) of the team should be…

  16. Obtaining access logs for the invited external tenant

    Sometimes users are invited to an external tenant unintentionally, and I would like to avoid them to communicate with external users. Thus, I would like to obtain access logs for the users who are invited to external tenants.

  17. Guest functionality makes for scizofrenic messaging

    When you are added as a guest to another tenant, you will by default appear in search with your email (user@company.com) in the internal search results.

    Chats sent to "internal" results of a guest will be stuck in the guest tenant until the user intentionally revisits that tenant. There is no quickly visible "external message" option - the end user has to know about this limitation, click "search externally" then send the message to have it deliver.

    This is extremely unintuitive and leads to a scizofrenic messaging experience once you get added across a number of organizations and…

  18. Separate Teams Guests from SharePoint Guests

    If we add guests to the Microsoft Team, this seems to add them to the Office 365 group with read/write access to the SP site as well. We want to be able to have a guest on the Team but not necessarily also be able to access the corresponding SharePoint site.

    Adding guest to the Team adds that guest user to the corresponding office 365 group. If we have the office 365 group as a "member" on the SP site (allowing write access to SP) there is no way to make the "guests" in that group read only.

  20. Send a notification to admins when a guest user joined in a team

    I would like the system to send admins a notification when a guest user joined in a team. For the security perspective, I would like to check when and which guest user joined in a team. So, it would be convenient if the system let us know about it automatically.
