  1. Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

    Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

      • 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.

        • Eliminate "Context" Switching from Guest Feature

          The new guest feature is a great start, but it feels more like a bolt-on than a core part of the experience. I'd like to see you be able to converse/collaborate as a guest in other organizations without needing to switch between tenants.

          Each context switch takes several seconds and is disruptive, I know I'm being picky here, but I believe this would help keep the end user experience smooth and drive adoption.

          Thanks!

            • Solution for guests accounts with an organisation account without Office365 tenant to be able to login at teams.microsoft.com

              I have created several guest accounts following the instructions here:

              https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/guest-access

              Basically,

              2. Added guest account through Azure Active Directory

              a. Guest account received email Azure AD "You're invited to the organization"

              b. Guest follows the "Get Started" link in the email to create a password

              4. Added guest to a Team through Microsoft Teams desktop application

              a. Guest account received email Teams "You have been added to a team in Microsoft Teams"

              • Rethink Guest Access

                Switching 'tenants" is impractical for most business uses. Your average CEO, or hourly employee, is not going to remember to switch accounts to see negotiations. The fact that you can't see notifications seemlessly from one account is why you need to rethink the guest access layout.

                It would better to see all notifications AND ANSWER THEM from your 'main' account. Not after you switch to your guest account. Efficient communication is thrown to the wayside with the current guest access setup. To me, guest access is useless.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Able to allow guest access for special teams (o365 groups) only, not all

                        Same concept already in for SharePoint Online sites, disable guest access on tenant level and set for special single sites only "allow external sharing", must be possible also for teams (o365 groups), in same way, current situation at the moment a show stopper for us, current domain handling not a solution

                        • Alerts in guest tenants

                          When you've been given access to a team as a guest there is currently no way to be alerted. All the little red notification only appear when you visit the guest team's tenant within Microsoft Teams. A notification on the account in "Your Accounts" would probably work.

                            • Shared Channels between Organizations

                              Slack is now supporting the following:

                              Shared Channels between Orgs: https://slackhq.com/introducing-shared-channels-where-you-can-work-with-anyone-in-slack-8c5d2a943f57

                              Please ensure that Teams supports both of these features as they're likely to be considered critical requirements from a conversation-based collaboration platform in 2018.

                              The experience should be as follows:
                              1) Admin should be able to allow channels to be shared between orgs.
                              2) Teams members should be able to invite Guests to channels.
                              3) Teams members should be able to select who will externally be the "Self-Service Admin" of the channel on the other Orgs side.
                              4) Global Admins on both sides…

                                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.

                                • federation

                                  Currently Teams Federation is provided through Guest access. There isn't much published collateral on the list of features (i.e. SIP to SIP or SIp to Other) defining what is required to build Federation with Partners especially where partners are on Skype and enterprise customer could be fully on Teams. Documentation is needing to provide customers guidance on how would you go about configuring with an OnPrem solution or what is needed to support federation in general. Full Federation guidance documentation is needed for these scenarios.

                                  • Provide central management for Guests invited in Teams

                                    Current for guests invited in Teams, we can see a Guest contacts will be created in O365 Admin Portal --> Users --> Guest users. However, there is no detailed information showing who invited the Guest, which Teams group this Guest belongs to and there is no easy way to manage these Guests accordingly.

                                    We would like to have central management feature for Guest users created in Teams.

                                    • List guest teams like Yammer

                                      Instead of having to select tenant, pls have all teams in one list and mark those in other tenants with a globe. Much like Yammer.

                                      Also have notifications displayed in the same manner. I.e one experience for everybody with no need to switch tenants.

                                      It would give everybody a clearer and easier way of keeping track of all your teams, no matter of where they reside.

                                      • 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.
