Guest users access to planner but not teams

New Contributor



I have 3 guest users in my organisation that need to access a Planner in a Teams.

Due to GDPR regulations they are not allowed to access the content in the Teams. They only need access to the Planner. 

Is it possible to grant the guest users to only the planner?

Hello there Mustafa,

For now, seems that is not possible to perform that. Planner builds on the Microsoft 365 groups guest access feature. If Microsoft 365 Groups guest access is turned off, you won't be able to add guest users to plans. So if the guest users can't access the Teams app (or any other) inside your ORG, then they will not be able to access the Planner.

Hope this helps :)


Hi Pedro,


Too bad it's not possible. 

I already came across that article but I was hoping that there was some kind of work around.


Thank you for your answer.

I was hoping to find any workaround too but nothing at all... don't forget you always have the UserVoice portal where you can ask for this feature (or maybe it already exists).

Glad to help, kind regards !
