The engineering team is actively working on this item. Thanks.
This had several hundred votes over in the StaffHub UserVoice. One thing I had been pushing for in StaffHub was to have this function both in the desktop app and mobile -- since not all users wanted to download the app to their personal phones. If that is not going to be available any time soon, then being able to use the API to build a simple web app is something we'd be interested in doing.
Wanted to let everyone know this work is in progress. We’ll update you as we get closer to completion.
Alex & the Teams team
I want the ability to set a policy based on the membership of the team. If they are existing external members of a specified team, I want to be able to allow them to join immediately without having to admit them from the lobby.
If they are members of the public or other clients, I want to be able to admit them one by one from the lobby. That way I can control who has access to a specific meeting.

This suggestion is still planned. I don’t have further updates on timing, but will share as we have them. Thanks.
Cross functional indexing came up in the Teams Tuesday meeting today. Being able to search for content between OneNote and the Wiki tab. I added the following...
Seth and Christopher, indexing content is a big deal. For instance, I'd like to search for a card we're using in the planner. The ideal way to do this is to simply enter a name or support ticket number in the search bar, but that doesn't work with the planner.
So here is the funky work-around we are currently using:
1) EVERY time a new card is created be sure searchable meta data (support ticket number, client name, person's name) is included in the name of the card,
2) copy a link to the card,
3) go to the Conversation tab, and paste the link. We have just self-indexed the planner card. Now when we want to find the card we
4) enter the person's name or support ticket number into the search bar, and it locates the linked conversation,
5) we click on the found conversation, and it opens in the conversation tab, where we now see the link to the related planner card and we
6) click on the link, which then generally opens the link in the browser, and asks us if we want to open it in the Teams web app or desktop app. We
7) click on the desktop app and
8) the appropriate card opens...
It would be SO MUCH NICER to be able to have the planner card indexed and searchable. BUT at least we figured out a way to do it while we're waiting.
A fix for this is being worked on. We hope to have a fix in internal Microsoft rings soon for testing. I don’t have a timeline for release externally at this point, but will keep you posted.
Completely agree. It is way too complicated to get a guest to join, when this is a one-time customer support type activity. I'm disappointed at how difficult we have made it to use this product except for our own organization.
Agree. We have clients now, who join Skype for Business meetings using the web app, no problem. If we have to go through account creation for these types of users, it won't work.
By comparison we try to share a document in SharePoint with a user and give them edit control. 75% of the time this fails because of their confusion in needing to accept access to our AD, and then needing to accept access to the document, and needing to sign in with or create a Microsoft account. I am close to giving up on this.
If you can't make it as easy and simply sending the meeting (or document in SharePoint) invite to an external user, and have them click on the link to confirm they have access, we need to find an easier to use solution for our external one-time and occasional users.
