Guest Access with Team Code or Teams Link
Allow Guest Access users to easily join via Team Code or link to Teams Channel. Adding guests one by one can be tiring when you're inviting hundreds of guests to a Team.
This would immediately make teams an excellent Virtual Classroom tool.
Teachers could make a "Classroom" team then give the Students the link to the team that contains the course material and a group and personal chat client with file sharing AND Video Conferencing with Desktop sharing. :)
Everything needed for a virtual classroom :D
Yes please, this would be a great option!

Yes please, we'd like to send a few hundred potential external users a link to the team and they be able to request access.
Rather than adding them individually to something they may not necessarily want to be a member of.
More than a good idea. It's inacceptable to to one by one invitation..... Time consuming. I'm not sure my colleagues will adopt Teams for this reason.

We would like to add 10k guest users and point them to a Team Code vs. having to create dls or using a CSV. This is a blocker for adopting Teams for a key business unit.

It is also difficult to track who has joined. rather than delete and re-adding, it would be so helpful to send a link to the person who has been added to the Team.
