Microsoft Guest#

This page documents Bixal's policy for adding external (guest) users to Microsoft 365.


External users (non email addresses) may be added to a particular Microsoft 365 group. Once the external user is added to the group, they will have access to the corresponding SharePoint site and Microsoft Teams channels. The external user will not be able to search or view other internally-public Microsoft 365 groups.

Identity provider#

The external user will continue to use their existing identity provider. In Bixal's Azure AD, the external user will be listed as a guest user as shown in the screenshot below.

User interface#

In Microsoft Teams, the user will need to click the organization dropdown in the upper right corner to switch the Bixal Solutions Inc view. The user will only view channels and chats that they have access to at Bixal.
