  1. Guest Access for Meetings, Calls and Videocalls

    It's important to be able to call and schedule meetings with clients.

    I use Teams with my company, and invite clients as Guests so he can have a look at the progress of his project.

    It's important to be able to have meetings with your clients.

    • Problems with setting up a Team with Guest Members

      Activating/Enabling a Group with Guests Team Members is not possible without support. Should be as easy and intuitive as in Slack.

          • guest invitation URL simplification

            We often have people who will need to enter a URL manually to join a meeting (from outside our company). Having a more human-input-friendly version of the invite URL would be greatly beneficial.

            • Product Not usable

              Again, MS has done a very poor job with Teams. No one thinks over there at MS and everyone seems to develop everything Half A$$

              Using Skype for business All contacts including other Skype contacts that are not Skype for business are able to be communicated with.

              Teams sucks, as it is a Silo and does not allow chatting with any other Skype users except for business.

              It is extremely buggy when moving to teams only as no contacts or favorites are carried over and you are forcing everyone to re-setup everything all over again.

              You loose all call logs…

              • Guest access

                Hi
                This is not an idea this is feedback on how Microsoft Teams works. When you tell subscribers they can provide guest access to your apps (Microsoft Teams) I suggest you do not hide the limitation. You should have also announced that there is a limit of 5 Guest accounts per licensed user. This would have made it much easier to assess the usefulness of the change to your subscribers. Which is pretty much none. It is frustrating to start planning business processes around an app like Teams to find the limitation makes it worthless for the business process.

                • Eliminate need for Teams app download for guest access

                  Regarding the Teams app, we see that you are enabling guest access in more simplified ways. That is very helpful.

                  However, we are interested in using Teams for prospecting new clients and find it cumbersome to request that they download the Teams App. Is MS planning on a future model where there is an online version of Teams for guest users that does not require a download for guest users?

                      We should be able to rename guests after creation without requiring an administrator.

                      • Guest Access in an Educational Setting

                        Below are a few items I'm looking for feedback or suggestions on.

                        1. Ability to create a class code to only allow visibility to the assignments page ... OR ... Have a check box under "guest permissions" where I can allow visibility to that page for parents / instructional assistants.

                        2. Ability to block a student from seeing another students post under "conversations" until they post?

                        3. Grade Syncing? Ability to sync grades with Skyward grading system?

                        • Allow admins and Teams owner the ability to turn guest sharing on/off for selected Teams

                          Currently Guest Access seems to be either On or Off for all Teams, we need the ability to allow owners to turn it On or Off when needed to. Currently both SharePoint and O365 Groups have this ability. This feature will make sure that users/owners don't accidentally invite external users to Internal Teams.

                              • 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.

                                • 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!!!

                                  • Missing tabs for Guests on Android

                                    We have several teams with guests, and they are unable to see certain tabs (Wiki, Files, additional file libraries, Excel tabs, etc..) when using the Android app. These tabs appear when the guest is on a PC or an iOS device.

                                    The only thing that is shown is 'Chat' and 'More'. 'More' contains some Web Link Tabs that have been created.

                                    To get around this, I have obtained the SharePoint document library URL and added it as a 'Web Page Tab'.

                                    • Allow Guests to Share Screen

                                      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.

                                        • Easy way to control which team can have guests

                                          Today, enabling guest access is a tenant level setting and you don't get the option out of the box to control it. It would be nice if you can let an admin see the list of all teams and then have the ability to select a set of specific teams to be able to have the capability to add guests.
