  2. Invite external users (guests) during MS Teams meeting

    Currently, organizers can only invite organization-affiliated members to join the meeting while the meeting is running. For external users, you have to copy the meeting link, paste it into an email and send it. This is very inconvenient. It would be good to permit (like you can in the invite to the meeting) simply type the email addresses of extenal users while being in a meeting to also invite them.

  3. Please implement a setting that allows guests to be added as members only for specific Office 365 groups

    特定の Office 365 グループにのみ、ゲストをメンバーとして追加可能とする設定の実装を希望します
    Please implement a setting that allows guests to be added as members only for specific Office 365 groups


    ■Description(内容):
    現在の Microsoft Teams の動作では、テナント全体でゲスト アクセスを許可するか否かの設定しかない。
    テナント内のユーザーにはチームを自由に作成させたいが、特定のグループのメンバー以外にはゲストをメンバーとして追加する操作は許可したくないため、当該設定が可能となる設定の実装を希望します。​
    Currently Microsoft Teams only has a setting to allow or deny guest access for the entire tenant.
    We want users within the tenant to create teams freely, but since we do not want to allow guests to be added as members other than for specific groups, we hope that such a setting can be implemented.

  4. "Cannot request a keyboard control from the guest user"

    Hello,

    My team would like to replace WebEx with Teams for Customer Support calls, but not all of our Customers have or use Teams logins. And, although Guest users can join a Teams meeting and share their desktops, they are unable to share control of their desktops. To more efficiently diagnose and resolve issues, we need to be able to request control of their shared desktops.

    On the Sharing menu, the Guest login is unable to "Give control" and as the meeting organizer I get a "Requesting control is disabled by sharer company's administrator" error when clicking the "Request control"…

  5. Block the guest access on organization-wide while allowing the guest access to the certain team

    I would like to block the guest access on organization-wide while allowing the guest access to only the certain team in Teams.
    Slack have similar settings, so it would be great if Teams would have the feature.

  6. Enable Remote control for external contacts(Guests) when you share your screen

    Right now, if you have a Meeting with someone that is not part of your Tenant, you only can share your screen to present what are you seeing at your screen; but if you want that the guest could take remote control of your screen this cannot be performed.

    Please enable remote control for external contacts (Guest) in order to use Teams instead of Join.me or Teamviewer

  7. Allow to share screen to External Contacts directly through Chat

    Allow to share screen to External Contacts directly through Chat. Currently we can only share our screen to external contacts when in a meeting. We can share screen to our internal colleagues but not to External Users. We will be needing to add them as a Guest Users first.

    Please enable guest users to use only messaging and search features in team chats

    Microsoft Teams の現在の機能として、ゲストアクセスのチャットを有効とした場合、チームチャットの他、個人・グループチャットが利用可能な状態となるが、セキュリティの観点からチームチャットのみ利用をさせ、個人・グループチャットは禁止させたい。
    また、個人・グループチャットからゲストユーザーを検索できることも禁止したい。
    現時点でチームチャット、個人・グループチャットの制御をそれぞれに設定する機能が無いため、実装を希望します。
    As an existing Microsoft Teams feature, if guest access chat is enabled, team, private and group chats becomes usable, but from a security point of view we want to disable private and group chats and only allow team chat to be usable.
    In addition, we also hope to restrict the feature to search for guest users from private and group chats.
    Currently there is no feature to set control settings individually for team, private and…

  9. allow guest access to be turned off by default and have the ability to add guest access for individual teams.

    currently if we want any team to have guest access it has to be turned on globally. we want to have it turned off by default and still have ability to allow for designated teams. currently we have to catch each team when created and turn off and then turn it on for designated teams. this is a cumbersome process.

  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 with Team Code or Teams Link

    Allow Guest Access users to easily join via Team Code or link to Teams Channel. Adding guests one by one can be tiring when you're inviting hundreds of guests to a Team.

  12. Please add the ability to invite external users and require approval from an administrator when adding

    If the team owner invites external users to participate, they will be able to participate without limit, and this will make it difficult for the administrator to understand the situation. So, please add the ability to require the administrator’s approval.

  13. removing the need to do tenant switching when you participate in another organization's teams as a guest.

    Hello. We have been trying to get our university community to adopt Teams as a collaboration suite. We run into the problem that external/guest Team users have to switch to our organization/tenant to take part in the relevant Teams in order to collaborate with us. The same also applies with our users participating as guests in other organisations. We are getting feedback from external partners, consultants and even from some of our own faculties that this not the best user experience. We also get comments that other tools on the market (even Microsoft skype for business) handle it in a…

  14. Allow "Dial Me" feature to show up for participants outside organization

    Some clients notified me that the "Dial Me" feature does not show up for them to allow dialing audio out to themselves. This feature exists for participants within organization, or at least the host, to dial a different # for audio access when already viewing the presentation. WebEx has this available and makes it handy for anyone who wants to click the link to join, but then want to dial another line for audio (e.g. if they have no headset). I can't imagine why it would be for host or internal organization only. Thanks

  15. Allow external users to access Teams only

    It would be great if we can control external access on a service basis. Specifically, I would like to invite external users to Teams only.

  16. Ability to invite non-members to chat and meetings whilst restricting access to all other content.

    To have the ability to invite non-members to a private channel meeting or chat whilst restricting their access to all other content. Their inactivity in a chat or meeting will disconnect them permanently after a set period, e.g. 60 minutes.

  18. 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.

  20. Show Teams from Guest Tenant in Sections rather than switching Tenant

    Instead of having to switch Tenant, why not add a section Guest where Teams from other Tenants are displayed while still displaying our home tenant Teams.
