Authorize and Automate Teams Guest Access with Surgical Precision

Microsoft Teams provides a best-in-class collaboration platform when working with a group of people in your enterprise. However, we all know that more often than not, project teams are comprised of people from outside your organization as well (vendors, partners, etc.). These individuals can be given access to a Microsoft Team by inviting them into that Team, and they are set up as a Guest. The ability to invite people in as a Guest is a tenant-level setting, which means that when it is on, all Teams can invite Guests in. What can you do if you want to invite a Guest in but only for selective teams? We’ll discuss how you can provide a governed and consistent process to automate the provisioning of Teams with Guest Access selectively. We’ll discuss the benefits of having the entirety of your team work in Teams, as well as how the combination of SharePoint Online, Power Automate, Power Apps and the Microsoft Graph provides the solution for this scenario.


Governing the Addition of Guests into a Microsoft Team

This session in my Guest Access series addresses how to provide a bit more governance around inviting a Guest into a specific Team. Remember that an Owner can add both Members and Guests if the tenant is configured for Guest Access. But what if we want to provide a certain level of awareness and business process when Guests are invited into a Team? Today's discussion and walkthrough will go into this scenario, allowing us to provide a consistent business process, including an approval mechanism, when a Guest is added to a Team. Our solution for this will rely on the Power Platform (Power Apps, Power Automate) and the Microsoft Graph.
