Microsoft Teams: Meeting chat moderation settings get a boost
Coming November 2020 Microsoft Teams will allow meeting organizers to turn off the chat functionality prior to, during, and after a meeting, which is turned on by default. Once available, meeting organizers will be able to set the "Allow meeting chat" setting within the Meeting options. This will enable them to manage the participant's ability to chat prior to, during, and after a meeting. WHET!!! CLAP!!
3 Meeting Options:
On (default): allows chat at any time.
Off: will make meeting chat read-only and no one can send messages in chat including the organizer.
During the meeting only: participants can send messages during the meeting only and the organizer can send messages all the time.
