Azure AD B2B Direct Connect for shared channels in Microsoft Teams

Microsoft offers with Azure AD B2B Direct Connect for shared channels in Microsoft Teams a feature that simplifies management for collaboration with external partners in teams.

Until the release of Azure AD B2B Direct Connect, an external partner was invited to the tenant as a guest and authorized in Microsoft Teams (Azure AD B2B Collaboration). The external partner then received an email with instructions for further steps.
