I have MS365 Business Standard licence, with an email for myself.
I don't need to add anyone to be able to use any features at all. email or Teams (really) but I want to be able to share my screen and be able to have Molly Smith, Fred Bloggs and a couple of other people who would appear to be members of my company, so that when training I have individuals and a group of people that I can use for this purpose.
Is there any way to do this - their existence would purely be to be able to utilise them when showing examples (let's say as an example, Teams Rooms) where not having 'actual people' to show how you use that feature, would make it very hard to demonstrate?
I guess I could add an external user with a generic external email, as a Guest, and use them that way but I wasn't sure if this would limit the features etc that I would be able to use them for (and thus limit what feature demos I could use them in).
Hope that makes sense.

I am an independent advisor responding to inquiries.
I also have a business standard license. I have used Microsoft's Sandbox for Developer Program | Microsoft 365 Dev Center for almost two years. It allows me to use fake users to investigate issues and develop training material/webinars. Every quarter, the usage is evaluated by MS. If not used, then your access will expire. The program allows me to experiment with features without impacting my business account.
Once downloaded, you can use the fake users to login into Teams. The other users can log in from a different browser. I have done it many times. However, only one user's profile can be activated on MS Teams from Windows if you have one computer.
Fyi: When switching between profiles between users (you & your fake users) on the Team Windows, there is a bug, but there is a workaround.

Actually think I can answer that question myself - becoming a member in MS Dynamics gives a free E5 licence, I think I have that right - "Hurrah" if that is the case
