Can external users be invited to collaborate on "new workspace"?

I understand that the current B2B mechanism limits external users only from consuming content in a workspace but not collaboration (https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Service/Share-content-with-external-users-and-be-able-to-collaborat...

 

Given the new workspace mechanism that is not tied to O365 groups, will this change? My scenario is as follows:

1. I am part of abcompany and my ID is me@abcompany.com

2. I create a "new" workspace (the preview one) called "XYZ Workspace"

3. Can I add someone@xyzcompany.com as a contributor to the workspace (assuming the person has a Pro license) and allow the person to collaborate with me on the dashboard?

 

Typical scenario: I have a contractor or system integrator who is going to support me in building my reports. Instead of onboarding the person and giving the person an organizational account, can I directly invite the person with the person's own company email to collaborate on my workspace to develop dashboards?

Hi there

As far as I currently understand it, this does not work even in the new workspace.
This would be ideal, as I personally have got about 6 different logins for different organizations where I am assisting them with Power BI.

Hi GilbertQ, 

 

Do each of those 6 organisations have a extra PowerBI license for your username at that organisation. So in theory you will have 6 licenses plus maybe your own? 

 

I am in the same position where I need to collaborate with a organisiation and deciding on the best way forward as it is a problem being a external user at the moment.

Hi there

For each organisation where I log into their domain I have a Power BI Pro license.

But if each of the 6 organisations had to share data with me externally my own Power BI Pro license would be all that I required to view the content.
