Microsoft Teams Connect, a new way of collaboration based on federated shared channels, is now in private preview and should be available later in 2021. The best thing about shared channels is that you don’t need to switch tenants to access a channel in another tenant. Azure B2B collaboration (guest accounts) is still important, but this is a brand new way of working that should be very popular.

Is there a plan to enable adding Dynamic groups for shared teams channel permissions
should it be possible to move existing channel to this state? Would be nice to keep context

@274188A You should already be able to share PBI reports with external users. They need to be a guest in your AAD tenant for it to work. 

@Tony Redmondis my understanding correct, that this feature will only work with users outside my own tenant? I am really looking forward for this feature, but I have concerns that it would not suit our needs. Our scenario is as follows:

We have "external" colleagues (near-shore developers) which have their own account in our tenant, but no access to our "Main Team". This main team has several channels (also for internals only, thats why externals have no access to the team at all). But for one single channel, we would like to invite the external colleagues as well. Would that be possible with this upcoming feature?

 

Best, Florian

Shared channels support both internal and external participants. The only caveat is that the domain the external participants come from must be allowed to use federated collaboration. We're getting close to public preview and details are changing, but I anticipate you'll be able to do what you want to.

@Tony Redmond do you have any visibility on the DLP capabilities yet.

And when we do know, we will update the Office 365 for IT Pros eBook. https://gum.co/O365IT/
Any chance Microsoft was INSPIREd to push this into public preview this week?
