Guest Presenter/Attendees without adding to O365 group or Team
It should be possible to invite guest users to be present or attend (sign-in to) meetings without needing them to be a member of a specific Team.
At the moment a guest user has to either be a member of Team in the tenant or have Team access with another tenant.
Inviting guest presenters for a one off meeting shouldn't require this.

This really messed up a meeting of mine trying this out for the first time. At least add a note when adding a Guest as a presenter that they must be in a team first. Had no idea, had to switch to Zoom to hold the meeting....

Please, yes! My colleagues and I have lost literally weeks of man hours to hand-holding, stepping folk through processes, testing to understand the processes ourselves and trying to turn out some kind of useful and meaningful documentation for external guests to use.
Do they already use teams? Do they need to setup a teams account? Do they need to be invited to a Teams site within our tenancy as a guest? Can you please setup a new MFA login for our tenancy? Can you please make sure you've completely logged out of Teams and O365 in all other instances so you can login under our tenancy in order to accept our terms and conditions, without which this won't work?
Our lives would be considerably less stressful and considerably longer if it was more like:
Do you want to present at an event we're hosting? Yes? Here - have a link.

This is a fundamental functionality in the Live Events. It shouldn't be that hard.
Unfortunately we have to evaluate other solutions.
