Hello and welcome to Planning Guest and External Access in Microsoft Teams. My name is Lee Mucciarone, and I'm a Microsoft 365 content creator for Cloud Academy. I have four years of IT experience working for Microsoft, with two years of specialized experience as a customer training specialist, training users on Microsoft tools. Occasionally, organizations have a need to communicate and collaborate with users outside of their organization. Whether these external users are contractors, strategic business partners, or any other situation, Teams has you covered with Guests and External Access policies.
Allowing different types and levels of access enables organizations to manage exactly what resources those users have access to. Today, we'll be going over providing access to external users in your Microsoft Teams environment. Before we get too deep into the specifics, let's look at what we'll be covering in the course. After completing this course, you should have an understanding of what Guest Access and External Access are and how they differ, how to manage both Guest Access and External Access within your organization, and how to navigate the Teams admin center to manage these settings. Now that we understand our goals for the course, let's start off by taking a look at what exactly Quest Access and External Access are and how they compare to one another.
Lee has spent most of his professional career learning as much as he could about PC hardware and software while working as a PC technician with Microsoft. Once covid hit, he moved into a customer training role with the goal to get as many people prepared for remote work as possible using Microsoft 365. Being both Microsoft 365 certified and a self-proclaimed Microsoft Teams expert, Lee continues to expand his knowledge by working through the wide range of Microsoft certifications.
