Hello,

 

I would like to disable file sharing with external/guest users in Teams.

It's possible to disable file sharing in Teams from SharePoint / One Drive and Upload from Computer ?

 

In this week I disabled to share files with with external/guest on SharePoint Admin Center and I make a test meeting with external/guest user and I still can share files.

In addition today I disabled this option on AD Azure.

 

Why is it so hard to turn off this option ? 

Does Teams even have this option to disable file sharing with external/guest users ?

Do you want to upload this sharing in all Teams or just in private chats?
