  1. Provide a much more obvious indicator that a Team has "Guests"

    My organization is EXTREMELY worried that a user may post something in a Team that has Guests without realizing external Customers may be in the Team. We are using the nomenclature that a Team name in ALL CAPS is a Team with external people, but it would be great if we could turn on a Banner on Posts (similar to the "This post will be seen by 65 people") in red or yellow so it's very very apparent that you are posting something external people can see.

    • Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

      Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

      • Guest access profile edit

        In Team when inviting a Guest from another organization, the guest shows up only as alias, making it difficult to identify them. The guest access invite should allow the guest to edit the profile to include a picture, or change the avatar name. If the guest is federated or has their own teams, then the profile should to the guest site.

        • Allow anonymous guests to chat within a meeting

          Currently, if a guest joins a meeting anonymously, it seems they cannot chat with each other or the organiser.

          If someone wanted to use Teams to webcast to a wide range of users who mostly don't have a Teams account, and may be private citizens rather than organisations, the only option for them to join is anonymously.

          But they then can't use the Chat feature to ask questions (which would be preferable to them using audio on a busy webcast).

          Or is this feature already planned in and coming soon...?

          Thanks,

          • 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.

              • Solution for guests accounts with an organisation account without Office365 tenant to be able to login at teams.microsoft.com

                I have created several guest accounts following the instructions here:

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

                Basically,

                1. Enabled Guest Access in Office365 Admin Center

                2. Added guest account through Azure Active Directory

                a. Guest account received email Azure AD "You're invited to the organization"

                b. Guest follows the "Get Started" link in the email to create a password

                4. Added guest to a Team through Microsoft Teams desktop application

                a. Guest account received email Teams "You have been added to a team in Microsoft Teams"

                  • Rethink Guest Access

                    Switching 'tenants" is impractical for most business uses. Your average CEO, or hourly employee, is not going to remember to switch accounts to see negotiations. The fact that you can't see notifications seemlessly from one account is why you need to rethink the guest access layout.

                    It would better to see all notifications AND ANSWER THEM from your 'main' account. Not after you switch to your guest account. Efficient communication is thrown to the wayside with the current guest access setup. To me, guest access is useless.

                    • Guest Display Name

                      Please provide a more obvious signal to the Owner who is adding a guest - to designate the Display Name at the time of adding a Guest.

                      If you don't edit the guest account name (by clicking on that teeny-tiny little edit button on the guest's email address) before you click 'Add' - there is no way to edit the Guest's display name.

                      Gotta delete and re-add.

                      Would be nice for a little more signal to the owner that "Here is where you set the Guest's Display Name."

                            It doesn't seem like a guests can change their avatar or information such as job title or location. When you have a lot of guests in your team having a picture and job title would be very useful.

                                    ***************
                                    Teams で "制御を渡す" をクリックしたあと、実際に制御を渡せたかの判断がつきにくいため、制御を渡す機能の実行が完了した場合、ポップアップメッセージ等で完了した旨が表示される機能の追加を希望します。

                                    As we click “Pass the restrictions”, we never know if we actually did pass it or not, add pop up message when we click “Pass the restrictions” so that we know for sure it did get passed.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                    • Guests should be able to send files in private chats

                                      Guest can send files/images inside channels but not inside private chats. Without that feature the communication with external developers or testers is almost not possible or had to be done inside a channel, which would disturb other team members.

                                      • After directly inviting guest users to a team on Microsoft Teams or registering guest users on Azure AD, using PowerShell to check if those

                                        When you invite external users to the team or add them to Azure AD as guest, it takes time for those users’ information to be reflected in the Microsoft Teams directory. So it would be helpful if I can use PowerShell to check whether those users are added to the directory or not.

                                        • guests without office 365

                                          We currently use a competing team collaboration app that does everything that MS Teams does. We would be interested in switching to MS Teams if only we could invite guests who are not Office 365 users, as we can with our current solution. We use our current solution to not only communicate and collaborate on tasks and project within our organization, but we also create teams for our customers to communicate with members of our team who are serving them, and they need only register with ANY email address.
