I love the fact that I can create #MicrosoftTeams to collaborate with people outside of my organization. This is however a setting that needs to be setup on your tenant (by an administrator), if your company allows it of course. The new Teams and Skype for Business Admin Center was launched in April 2018, let me show you where to find these settings.
Go to Office.com and click on Admin:
In the Admin Center, go to Settings > Services and Add-Ins. Then click on the link to the new Microsoft Teams Admin Center in the top right corner:
In the new Admin Center, click on Org Wide Settings > External Access. Here you can enable External Access, as well as giving users the ability to communicate with external Skype Users through Teams:
Under Org-wide Settings > Guest Access, you’ll find the settings for your Guests in Teams:
