Turn On/Off Chat feature permission - per User
We have a use scenario where we would like to give a specific user access to Teams/Channels, but do not want to give them access to the Chat feature. There is an option to turn the Chat feature off for the entire Teams tenant, but there is no option for a specific user.

Thought MSFT would update this, but... it can be done now with a custom Messaging Policy (disabling Chat and assigning to user).

I have a client that needs this functionality bad, because staff like to direct message the COO on the weekends, almost need some heiarchical control on who can message who, like group A can message everyone, group B can only message others in group B...
