  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. 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."

  5. 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.

  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 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. resending invitation to join microsoft team

    Please allow for some way to resend the inital invitation to a Team. Every time I do this at least one person never gets the mail it would be great if I could go to their name and just click a resend email.

  11. 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,

  12. "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"…

  13. Option to remove guest account (under Your accounts) from Microsoft Teams

    As a guest, I cannot remove a guest account (under Your accounts) from my Microsoft Teams. I can leave all teams, I'm a guest member of, but I'm stuck with the account.

  16. Tenant Friending

    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.

  17. 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.

  19. Allow 'Guests' to have the same amount of functionality as a regular Member.

    Allow 'Guests' to have the same amount of functionality as a regular Member. Or as much as possible while still keeping things secure.

    When a Guest is added to the Team, often times they are at the same level of team membership / importance / contributor as actually internal Members and it makes no sense business wise to limit their functionality - arbitrarily - just because they are not part of our tenant.
