Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

Issue with enable-csuer when the user first name contain spaces

I have run into an issue with the set-csuser command in a few deployments. The error occurs when I try to use set-csuser with the "-sipaddresstype firstlastname" switch.

If I changed the -sipaddresstype from "firstlastname" to "emailaddress", I was able to use the script to enable the same user.

It turned out this user had two first names (with a space between) in the fname property in AD (fname="First Name"). If I removed one of them (fname="First"), or used a hyphen between them (fname="First-Name"), the script started working again.

did you notify Microsoft, that this is a bug in their product? If you do so, this may not be forgotten and they will fix it in the next CU.

Hm, why do you allow comments if you dont care about feedbacks from your readers?

I do care. I just overlooked this comment. Yes, I have informed Microsoft of this. No reply yet, though.
