Inter Tenant Collaboration in Teams

Occasional Contributor

Hello, my Name is René Klett working as Senior Solution Architect. I have the following questions regarding our international MS Teams rollout. Background : Were working with 2 Tenants, currently inviting Users from the other Tenant (US) as guests into the European Tenant.


1. Is there a possibility for a guest to be a Teams Owner ? I know there are Azure Directory Settings where guests could get O365 Group Ownership


2. Is there anything planned like a Trust between O365 Tenants and when will this available?


3. When we rename a Team, the complete SPO Structure is still available with the old name. This is a Problem when browsing with O365 Pro Plus to save data into Teams Libraries because User see the old Name when browsing this Structure.


4. Due to some data laws we need the possibility to export conversations - is it planned to have this feature in future. Thank you very much. MS_TechGuy

we ned this too, user from another tennant to be a regular member in our tennant / org

We also need such a functionality.


From my knowledge - this is not possible actually. You need a global tenant strategy, including sharepoint etc. - do you have one root domain with sub domain? Or do you have two different azure ADs? 


1 . Why do you want a guest user to be a teams owner? That make no sense, you need to train your internal people to manage guest users and archiving the team if you do not need it anymore. This is just example. If you have a guest as a owner, how can you make sure that these guest knows your archiving strategy? 


4. I think you mix things up - a chat conversation should not have any important information's in it. Therefore you have channels. This should be a part of your governance concept.
