  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.

          • 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:

            Basically,

            2. Added guest account through Azure Active Directory

            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"

            • 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,

              • 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.

                • Allow guests to change avatar and description

                  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.

                  • Hide the e-mail adresses of guests

                    To be GDPR compliant we would like to hide the guests e-mail adresses by default in Teams.

                    • 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."

                      • 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.

                        • Eliminate "Context" Switching from Guest Feature

                          The new guest feature is a great start, but it feels more like a bolt-on than a core part of the experience. I'd like to see you be able to converse/collaborate as a guest in other organizations without needing to switch between tenants.

                          Each context switch takes several seconds and is disruptive, I know I'm being picky here, but I believe this would help keep the end user experience smooth and drive adoption.

                          Thanks!

                            • Shared Channels between Organizations

                              Slack is now supporting the following:

                              Shared Channels between Orgs: https://slackhq.com/introducing-shared-channels-where-you-can-work-with-anyone-in-slack-8c5d2a943f57

                              Please ensure that Teams supports both of these features as they're likely to be considered critical requirements from a conversation-based collaboration platform in 2018.

                              The experience should be as follows:
                              1) Admin should be able to allow channels to be shared between orgs.
                              2) Teams members should be able to invite Guests to channels.
                              3) Teams members should be able to select who will externally be the "Self-Service Admin" of the channel on the other Orgs side.
                              4) Global Admins on both sides…

                                While guests can now join a Team meeting, there is no "promote to presenter" option to allow them to share their screen. Without this, I'm forced to fall back to Hangouts or Zoom.

                                • Allow Guests to schedule Private and Channel meetings

                                  We work with partners remotely who are just as much a part of our team as those who work for us. These partners are invited to our teams as guests and we would like them to be enabled to schedule meetings for the team. When we try to enable the switch for this it won't allow it so it must be an administratively prevented option.

                                  • Provide central management for Guests invited in Teams

                                    Current for guests invited in Teams, we can see a Guest contacts will be created in O365 Admin Portal --> Users --> Guest users. However, there is no detailed information showing who invited the Guest, which Teams group this Guest belongs to and there is no easy way to manage these Guests accordingly.

                                    We would like to have central management feature for Guest users created in Teams.

                                        Treat users in your own organization but on different tenant differently than a regular guest. We should not have to add them a a Guest user in our tenant.

                                        • 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!!!
