When organizations embrace a culture of collaboration, they often benefit from stronger relationships, more informed decisions, and faster outcomes.
Whether you’re interacting with colleagues, partners, or customers, Microsoft Teams features such as Teams Connect, guest access, and anonymous participant access give users options for working better together.
Here are three capabilities that can help organizations select the best solution for their needs:
1. Teams Connect
Microsoft Teams Connect enables seamless and secure collaboration across organizational boundaries, allowing everyone to work as one extended team while staying in their own Teams environment. Leverage Teams Connect shared channels to chat, call, meet, and collaborate on files with external partners while staying in the flow of work, with no tenant switching required.
2. Guest Access
Guest access enables you to add a person from outside your organization to a team, allowing them to chat, call, meet, and collaborate on files. In the new Teams, tenant switching is faster and more seamless than ever, while chat, calling, and meeting start notifications are integrated from all connected tenants and accounts.
3. Anonymous participant access
Anonymous participant access allows unvalidated parties to join a meeting without requiring them to create an account or sign in. This feature is turned on by default for organizations and the default global meeting policy, but can be turned off for certain meeting organizers or for everyone if necessary. It is useful when inviting people outside the organization to a meeting who cannot be validated.
Whatever your external collaboration needs, Microsoft has options to ensure you can bring the right people, information, and applications together, while maintaining security and governance over the things you do not want to share.
