Add the ability to make guests Full team members.
I started using teams and added a member as a guest, I think it would be a great idea to be able to give guests full member status if we choose to.
Currently not supported but as a workaround you can remove the guest and re-invite them as full member.
Thank you for the feedback!
The guest option should be assignable at the point you add someone and you should be able to add someone using an email account which is outside of your organisation!
I administer a project which is a collaboration of 4 universities. All 4 have their own IT network and their own copies of o365, yet when I add the people to the Team they are added as guests and therefore have no rights, can't view the meeting chat and can't do most of the collaborative things we need them to.
I tested what access a 'guest' has by setting a couple of personal accounts up on my work Teams and they get NOTHING!
How are people from outside your immediate network supposed to collaborate in Teams if they can't even access the simple things??
ADDITIONALLY: You can't just remove and re-invite someone to give them full member access so I'm not sure where 'Warren' got this from!
Please all me to call all the members of the team at a time

Possible using PowerShell:
Set-AzureADUser -ObjectId YourEmail_Hotmail.com#EXT#@NameOfYourOrganization.onmicrosoft.com -UserType member

I have tried this many times, without success. Does this in fact work? People have left the org, I have removed their account, I sent them a new invite, and they still show up as guests.
How do you invite them as full member?

I wonder what teams considers as someone "inside my organization" versus outside of it. Are people only considered "inside my organization" if we all have Office 365 accounts created by our IT department? If that's the case, then you can't really use the 'free' version unless you're already subscribed to Office 365.
