  1. Hide guest email address from other guests

    Would like to use Teams as a platform to interact with coworkers and employees that don't have a company email or Office 365 account. The only thing preventing this from happening, is that their private/personal email addresses are shared with others. To protect their privacy, I'd like the ability to hide their contact info from other guests.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Add a way to search for users to invite during Teams meetings by specifying the external user’s domain

    *English follows Japanese

    Microsoft Teams の会議中にユーザーを招待する際、外部ユーザーのドメインを指定して検索する機能の実装を希望する
    Add a way to search for users to invite during Teams meetings by specifying the external user’s domain


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点では外部ユーザーのメールアドレスを都度入力する必要がある。
    この場合、入力するメール アドレスに相違ないか確認をする、招待する人数が多い場合に入力に時間を要するなどの工数がかかる。
    ドメインを指定して外部ユーザーを検索することで、他テナントのユーザーを一覧表示したうえで名前を選択し、招待を行いたい。

    At present, you need to enter the mail addresses of external users each time.
    In this case, you also need to check there are no mistakes in the addresses, and it takes a lot of time if there are many users to invite, which creates a lot of work.
    I want to be able to search for external users by their domain and then choose from a list of names…

    Allow guest users to create meeting notes during meetings too


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の機能においてゲスト ユーザーは、チームの会議に参加した際には、会議メモを作成する権限が無く、会議終了後にチーム内の [会議のメモ] タブより閲覧、編集が可能となっています。
    ゲスト ユーザーも重要なプロジェクトの一員であるため、ゲスト ユーザーに会議メモを作成できるような機能を追加する、もしくは、メモを作成する権限を任意で追加することのできるような機能を追加してほしいです。
    Currently, when guest users attend a team meeting, they lack permission to create meeting notes, but after the meeting ends they can view and edit them from the “Meeting notes” tab in the team.
    Since guest users are members of important projects too, please make it possible for them to create meeting notes, or for us to assign permissions to create meeting notes freely.

  9. Please enable an audit feature for lobby admits

    Please add audit functionality for Teams for who admitted people from the lobby and what time they were admitted.

    This allows us to add who audit who was in a meeting from outside our org or federated orgs.

  10. Meeting invites from Outlook/Teams calender to guests in BCC (because of GDPR)

    Could you please make it an option to invite guests to a Teamsmeeting the 'normal way' by having their e-mail addresses in BCC?

    The work-around to only invite yourself and then send the meeting link to all (guest) attendees in a BCC e-mail is rather cumbersome...

    Due to GDPR you would have to ask permission of each guest to share the e-mail adresses first, which could cause a delay in being able to send the meeting invite.

    We use Teams meetings for our trainings, all consisting of guests.
    We can not use the 'Streaming' option and check-in button in Microsoft…

  11. allow for gallery view when joining as a guest on web browser

    I will run a project with the elderly and school age children and the elderly will be joining via the browser. They will only therefor be able to see the speaker rather thank the whole group in gallery view (we have 30 people) Please consider this as it will be very complicated to get them to join via the app but they will be missing out on very important social contacts if they do not see everyone in gallery view

  12. Teams: select domain allowed in guests function

    as it happens when you enable the External Access function on the tenant, I think it would be appropriate to have the possibility to select only the desired domains, in case the Guest mode is activated.

  17. Let users and admins control status visibility to externals/guests

    Let users and admins control status visibility to externals/guests. Sometimes it is a wanted feature to show your status to a guest or external org, but mostly people don't want to be seen as available to guests/externals.

    As an example scenario, some customers are joined to our tenant as guests and after they see some specific developer online, they start asking for service directly instead of going through regular channels.

  18. Specify who can/can't admit participants from the Lobby.

    Control who is admitted to a meeting. Currently, anyone in the meeting can admit someone from the lobby into the meeting, including people calling in outside of Teams (from a phone). This could be a privacy/security issue.

  19. Unify guest authentication methods

    There are two types of guest authentication: passcode and password authentication.
    By unifying to one that demands improvement.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/guest-access

    "The guest accepts the invitation. Guests who have a work or school account in Azure Active Directory can accept the invitation and authenticate directly. Other users are sent a one-time pass code to validate their identity (One-time passcode authentication required). "

    There are two ways that end users can get confused.
    As an example, by forgetting the registered password, which hinders smooth access.

    From a usability point of view, this behavior needs to be improved.

  20. Allow National Cloud (GCC & High GCC) Users to be invited to a Commercial Tenant Team

    Allow National Cloud (GCC & High GCC) Users to be invited to a Commercial Tenant Team

    When you try adding a National User as a guest in Teams it gives an error something like "An error occurred, please try again later" but when you try adding the same guest in Azure AD it tells you National Cloud Users cannot be added to Commercial Teams... ask for another email address"

    This ability really needs to be added to Teams ASAP
