  1. Guest access - more control and more permissions

    There are several different levels of 'guest' but very little control over assigning rights and permissions. Guests might range from an external consultant running a project to a supplier invited to view an RFP. Both would have completely different requirements. There needs to be the ability to create several different guest roles and have granular control over access to sharepoint assets. Let us manage access to our own tenancy for guest users!

  2. Rename guest accounts after creation

    We should be able to rename guests after creation without requiring an administrator.

  3. Option to skip Getting Started screens on Guest access

    Whenever you accept an invitation to join a Team as a guest, you have to click Next through the getting started screens (four of them?). Add a Skip option on the first screen to bypass seeing the rest of them, if you are already familiar with Guest access (usually because you are already a guest in other Teams).

  4. Please enable guest users to use only messaging and search features in team chats

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ゲストユーザーに対し、メッセージングと検索をチームチャットのみで有効とする機能について
    Please enable guest users to use only messaging and search features in team chats


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams の現在の機能として、ゲストアクセスのチャットを有効とした場合、チームチャットの他、個人・グループチャットが利用可能な状態となるが、セキュリティの観点からチームチャットのみ利用をさせ、個人・グループチャットは禁止させたい。
    また、個人・グループチャットからゲストユーザーを検索できることも禁止したい。
    現時点でチームチャット、個人・グループチャットの制御をそれぞれに設定する機能が無いため、実装を希望します。
    As an existing Microsoft Teams feature, if guest access chat is enabled, team, private and group chats becomes usable, but from a security point of view we want to disable private and group chats and only allow team chat to be usable.
    In addition, we also hope to restrict the feature to search for guest users from private and group chats.
    Currently there is no feature to set control settings individually for team, private and…

  5. lack of retention and controls for users when they guest into other tenant

    When our Teams users guest into another company's tenant, our tenant doesn't capture the eComms for private or channel chats and channel files viewed, edited, or shared which could present compliance, retention, auditing and legal issues.Retaining that data , providing audit logs showing who guested into which tenants when, being able to disable our users ability to guest into other company's tenants and being able to configure whitelists of allowable tenants for our users to guest into along with graph apis for pulling the captured retention data is a must have,

  7. Restrict users to be invited to external tenants as a guest

    I would like to avoid users to be invited to an external tenant unintentionally. This could be controlled by using Azure AD but I would like to control it in Teams.

  9. Better integration with Guest accounts

    Several team members who access via guest accounts have been experiencing frequent and persistent issues being able to connect to teams and access content. I would like to see a better user experience for guest users and more information to them (better error messages) when they are denied access on how to remediate.

  10. 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.

  12. Allow external users to use the Teams mobile app

    I would like that my guests are able to use the Teams app too, since that really would allow all team members to have the full experience of teams and be able to collaborate faster. This not being available means all external users are tied to their computers to collaborate with people in my organization, and that limits this service a lot. Please vote if you feel the same way.

  13. Logging user’s activities which have done in the external tenant

    I would like you to add a feature to collect user activity logs such as file uploading and conversation histories which has been done in the external tenant where the user had been invited in.

  14. Hide internal user presences of a tenant which invites a guest user from Outlook client for the guest

    In Teams, if a guest user is signing in to a tenant whose invited in, the internal user presences of the tenant are shown in the guest user’s Outlook client. However, for the security reason, we don’t want the guest user to see the internal presences and would like to have a feature to hide the user presences of the tenant.

  15. Restrict the guest users to call or chat

    Teams setting currently allows us to restrict calls or chats from guest users to internal users, but it doesn’t allow us to restrict vice versa. I would ask you to allow us to restrict internal users to call or chat to guests.

  17. Guest Access Permission

    It is currently very difficult to control Guess Access Permissions in MS Teams. We only have the options to block creation, editing or deletion of Channels, but a Guest can delete all contents of a Channel and even empty the SharePoint recycle bin.
    The only workaround I have found to date is the following:
    In SharePoint Site Permissions, create a new Permission Level that does not allow file deletion, move the O-365 Group from the Edit Permission Level to the new restricted Permission Level, then manually add Internal Members to the Edit Permission Level.
    The above workaround will allow only…

  18. Receive PSTN Calls When a Guest in Another Tenant

    When I am logged into my team that my PSTN is connected to I receive calls in Teams from my PSTN Plan number. When I switch to another team using the dropdown for fast team switching where I am a setup as a guest, I no longer receive these calls (even though I am authenticated on my primary domain/team as the PSTN account).

    Please make it so your PSTN account works with either: a) your main account you are logged in as, whether as user or guest in a foreign tenant, or; b) when signed in with multiple O365 accounts,…

  19. Obtaining access logs for the invited external tenant

    Sometimes users are invited to an external tenant unintentionally, and I would like to avoid them to communicate with external users. Thus, I would like to obtain access logs for the users who are invited to external tenants.

  20. Lets us disable editing for Guests!!!..... please ~:|

    Still can't disable editing for guests... isn't this bothering anybody else??? The "Visitors" settings when sharing files or within SharePoint don't correlate at all with Guests in Teams (which I'm sure they are supposed to)... The only way I can find to disable editing for Guests is to disable editing for Members on every file, one at a time, but then the Members can't edit the files either..... This is ridiculous, right? There should be a big giant switch in the Team settings that says "Allow Guests to edit files".... but there isn't :[
