Join meetings MUTED by DEFAULT -- like in Skype and Lync!!
We've switched all our meetings to Teams, and everyone always forgets that they need to MUTE themselves MANUALLY -- and you can always hear someone breathing or something.
I can see below that there's another request for this, but I can't vote on it, because the Teams Team says it's implemented? -- Well, whatever, it must be broken, because it's not implemented for anyone that I work with.
It clearly defaults to UNMUTED. :(

This appears to be broken. There was a request by someone else, finally fulfilled (according to MS) about a year ago (July 2018) to have the default be muted. My experience is that this is not the case. Even after muting before joining, when I next enter Teams, it is unmuted again.
If this is a settable option, I have not found it yet. If anyone knows more, please post!
Or at least provide a setting to set what your default stance is when joining a call.
