    The ability to allow people outside the organization to participate in discussions is the greatest value in that they can provide information and/or ideas as the project progresses.

    The use of Bluebeam as a PDF markup tool allows this in a restricted or open access setting. Teams should do the same!

    A lot of our users are used to use IM/calls with external users on SfB. It would be difficult for them to use Teams if this feature is not transposed to Teams.

    I think there should be a subsititute for personal skype and other software such as zoom or gotomeeting through teams

    Where’s the open federation similar to what Skype had? Guest access seems clunky from a user perspective

    I am not able to add a guest to my Team and cannot figure out how to get this to work - any tricks to this?

    I agree as well. We have collaborators outside our licensed organization but they have Office 365 accounts. They should be allowed in our Team!

    Agree - It will be a good start with at least other Office 365 tenants - sharing document libraries and channels for granular access
