I have a hybrid Office 365 Tenant but we are not looking at full deployment (E3) for some time.

 

Is there any way to add my internal co-workers to Teams without licenses?

 

At the moment, the best option I have is to create new external logins (Outlook.com/Gmail) and have them butcher the login process.

 

Cheers,

Mick

Hi Mick, Every user that resides as a user in your Tenant (Cloud only or synched) need to be licensed. To have those internal co-workers to Teams you will need to have a license to them.

 

I'm seeing that as the result while attempting to add any email address matching my domains. I'm just hoping the option to use the guest role is going to expand.

 

As it stands now I am contemplating spinning up external accounts for 20+ staff to get us moving so we can role out Teams and Office365 and remove our reliance on Slack.

 

Hi Mick,

 

You can use Office 365 F1 licenses for that users. https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-f1
