Barge, Whisper, Listen In
I found a similar request for Skype here (https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/suggestions/8900035-monitoring-features-silent-monitor-whisper-bar). I haven't been able to find documentation on implementation of the following so wanted to throw it out there just in case.
1) Whisper - Managers or supervisors can tell agents what to say (advice or answers) without customer hearing them.
2) Barge In - Managers or other users can jump on a call without permission from the original user to help with a call (especially useful in call center situations).
3) Listen - Managers or other users can listen in on a call, given they have the access (QA uses extensively).
All 3 features are sometimes referred to with different names, but hopefully the concept is clear.
We need barge in. Make it a reality!
Shoretel refers to these features as Silent Monitor and Silent Coach I believe. It would definitely be nice to have in addition to Call Recording. It looks like call recording is on the backlog still. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19013110-audio-call-recording-in-teams

This would be a great help as we have to shadow our new hires during the 2-week training time frame.
Currently, 9/10 times, the Analyst has to pause the conversation to give the users side of the story where if we had the above features we could monitor and contribute in a timely manner.

This is super important to me.

I am looking for this functionality as well for training and development.
