Guest Access in Microsoft Teams:
Office 365 applications are rapidly changing and improving. A guest is considered any member of your Team that is not an AHS employee.
What can your Guests do?
Although anyone can be invited to participate as a guest, guests have some restrictions on their Teams participation.
This article highlights the Teams guest experience with a checklist that shows Guest restrictions. Each row indicates a feature/functionality with checkmarks, where applicable, indicating feature availability for AHS members (column 1) and Guest members (column 2).
How to invite a Guest to a Team:
- Launch Microsoft Teams.
- From the left navigation rail, right click on the Team you would like to add a Guest to.
- Select “Manage Team” from the drop-down menu.
- Select “Add Member”.
- In the dialogue box begin typing the email address of the Guest you would like to add. The email address can be any business or consumer email address.
- Select your guest member from the drop-down.
- Select the pencil icon next to the Guest’s name to “Edit Guest Information”. This will allow you to provide a descriptive name such as full name for the guest.
- Your guest member will be added to your Team. You will see the screen below:
- Press Add.
- Your Guest member will receive an email welcome invitation for your Team.
- Once your Guest has been successfully added to your Team, you will see indicators letting you know you have a Guest member.
