External Collaboration Use Cases for Microsoft Teams WITHOUT Enabling Guest Access

Earlier this week, Microsoft Teams tweeted a terrific list of use cases for each department.

We thought we'd complement that with a set of external collaboration and sharing use cases for Microsoft Teams:

e-Share - Teams use cases external

These can be quickly and easily supported by installing eShare's Bot for Microsoft Teams - without enabling external guest access. Most large or regulated companies simply can't allow external guest access. (Much as they block most cloud sharing services.) It's too "all or nothing" without fine grained controls like automatic expiration, edit-only access, or watermarking.

After using Teams heavily for the past year at eShare, we've noticed an interesting pattern. Virtually every time we need to engage with outsiders, we debate and discuss designs, objectives and requirements in Teams. It can get pretty intense.

When we finish the debate, we have to share the finished result with outsiders.

Sharing the entire discussion is not a good idea... we might well have discussed the vendors, technologies, or details of our customers. Among many potentially sensitive topics.

With the eShare External Collaboration Bot, you just ask it to share any conversation and attachments...

MS Teams disvussion confirm

The bot can fully access eShare's fine grained sharing policies, as detailed in this article from last month.

Please, register for a demo to see how the bot can support these use cases for your organization!

We'd also love to hear about use cases that may be challenging, problematic or valuable to your company - feel free to submit a comment below!
