  1. Remove 5 Guests Per user Limit

    The limitation of 5 Guest access maximum per paying user is absurd : On one hand you provide Free TEAMS and on the other hand if we want to create Teams with many external people it is blocked. At least we should not have a limit for external users that are Office 365 User on another tenant as they already pay for teams!!! Otherwise please provide a GUEST subscription that we can buy for our guests. I don't understand this limitation as we can share document without limitation with everyone!!!

  3. Allow presenter to give control to someone accessing from an iPad.

    When I am doing telehealth I need my students to be able to access the website we go to. If that student only has an iPad, it will not allow it.

  4. Let users and admins control status visibility to externals/guests

    Let users and admins control status visibility to externals/guests. Sometimes it is a wanted feature to show your status to a guest or external org, but mostly people don't want to be seen as available to guests/externals.

    As an example scenario, some customers are joined to our tenant as guests and after they see some specific developer online, they start asking for service directly instead of going through regular channels.

  5. Feature that general users can decline to access to an external tenant team if they are invited as guests

    Sometime our internal users are unintentionally invited to an external tenant team as a guest. We would request you to provide a feature that general users can decline to access to an external tenant team as we would like our users not to join any unintended external tenant team.

  7. Take out need for guests to sign in to Microsoft account!!

    I have heard that this is the main reason why people prefer other programs over Microsoft, (GoToMeetings only requires download and an email). Its very frustrating when people have to sign into so many things. Right when your about to have a BUSY meeting, guests have to sign in, download the Teams app, sign into an unnecessary Microsoft guest account, then they forgot their password, go to reset it, etc etc. Meeting is over and customer is frustrated!! Business LOST to "GoToMeeting" or google hangouts or whoever is the next startup!

    When a guest gets an email, they should be…

  8. Allow removing entries from the Tenant picker

    If a user has been invited to another tenant, that tenant will show on the Teams tenant picker dropdown. If that user later wants to leave that tenant, there doesn't appear to be a way for the user to do that.

    I would request you allow users to remove themselves from other tenants they have joined. Similar to how a user can leave a Team they have joined.

  9. Do not allow adding guests to a Team from people picker if guest access is disabled

    When guest access is disabled for Microsoft Teams, do not allow the ability for members to add a Guest. This option is disabled by default and can be viewed/activated by going to:

    Admin Center -> Settings -> Services & add-ins -> Microsoft Teams -> Settings by user/license type

    This is a source of confusion for end users because it allows members to specify a guest user by email address in the people picker control. The Teams application then proceeds to sends the email to the guest user, only to have the guest not be able to view the Team after…

  11. Allow guest users to search files

    Internal users can see three tabs, Messages, People and Files when they input keywords in the search bar. However, guest users can only see two tabs, Messages and People. The Files tab is not shown to guest users when they search keywords. So, it would be great that guest users can search files.

  14. Allow a keyboard control for guest user

    I'd like to have the option to give a keyboard control to a guest user if the user have a Teams application installed. It worked a month ago but doesn't work anymore.
    It works ok on Skype for Business

  15. Communication between internal organization and external at the same time without toggle

    When having direct communications with other organizations, it's an annoyance that you have to toggle between your internal org and external. You need to be able to quickly communicate with everyone that you would normally communicate with in a normal day. If this is the Business solution MS is going with, it needs to meet the immediate and obvious business needs.

    Further options to restrict file uploads when guests are participating in another separate tenant as a guest user


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams において、ゲストを招待したテナントではゲスト ユーザーに対してファイルのアップロードなどを SharePoint Online のアクセス権限をカスタマイズすることで制御は可能だが、ゲスト ユーザーのテナント側で別テナントにゲストとして参加している際のファイルのアップロードなどを制御することができない。
    ゲストとして参加しているテナントにてファイルのアップロードが許可されていると、自テナント内の情報などを不用意に別テナントに共有される恐れがあるため、ゲストとして参加した際のファイルのアップロードを制御する機能の拡充を希望します。
    It is possible to restrict file uploads in Teams for guest users from other tenants, by customizing access rights in SharePoint Online, however there is no way to restrict file uploads specifically in cases where the guest user in question is also in another separate tenant as a guest user.
    If file uploads on this other tenant are permitted, it is possible for them to share…

    Currently, if you are invited to a team by an external tenant as a guest, and join, an item in the top right, near your icon, appears allowing you to switch to the external tenant you’re participating in as a guest.
    If you leave the external tenant team which you are participating in as a guest, or if an external tenant Teams team you are in is deleted, the icon…

  19. Do not automatically add guests to org-wide teams

    When a org-wide team is created, have an option to not automatically add guest accounts.

    We have a org-wide company team for general chit chat, but don't want guests (eg: customers) to join/see this (for obvious reasons haha!)

  20. Hide or show the “Guest” tag next to the display name of guest user

    I would like to choose to display or hide the “Guest” tag depending on the invited tenant. This is shown next to the display name of guest when inviting a guest.
