Read-only to the outside party for Teams

Terry Chan 206 Reputation points

I want to use MS Teams to collaborate with outside parties, who we would like to invite to be members of our Teams. However we want to be able to place some restrictions on their access to the content. Is there a way to set up an environment where the content is read-only to the outside party but editable internally? I found that there are permission settings for owner and member but not as visitor. How to manager the outside parties with a visitor group?

    What kind of content are we talking about here? Channel posts, documents, files? You can restrict Guests from editing/deleting posts via the set of Messaging settings under the Teams Admin Center > Users > Guest access:


    For restricting files/document access, you will have to play with SharePoint permissions. Or apply sensitivity labels.
