Guest Access for Microsoft Teams:

“The new Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center is coming soon! Starting in March 2018, we’re gradually migrating settings to it from both the current Skype for Business admin center and the Microsoft Teams experience in the Office 365 admin center. If a setting has been migrated, you’ll see a notification in the current admin centers and then be directed to the setting’s location in the new Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center.
As the Office 365 admin, you must enable the guest feature before you or your organization’s users (specifically, team owners) can add guests.
The guest settings are set in Azure Active Directory. It takes 2 hours to 24 hours for the changes to be effective across your Office 365 organization. If a user sees the message “Contact your administrator” when they try to add a guest to their team, it’s likely that either the guest feature hasn’t been enabled or the settings haven’t become effective yet.”  Read more…

Steps:

  1. Sign in with your Office 365 global admin account at https://portal.office.com
  2. Go to the Admin Center
  3. Click on Settings > Services & Add-ins
  4. Go to Microsoft Teams
  5. Under Settings by user/license type, click on drop-down and select Guest
  6. Turn on Microsoft Teams for Guest
  7. Save

Take note of above release of the Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center coming soon – which will change this “how-to”.

Voila!! 🙂


Purpose of this blog challenge:  I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
