Allow Teams Meeting Host to Toggle Meeting Entry Exit Tones Conference Bridge Settings
As an O365 global admin there is no way to let my Teams users toggle these audio conferencing meeting preferences themselves.
There is only a global setting in the Teams/Skype admin portal that lets me turn on/off these audio conference bridge settings for the entire tenant. My users need to be able to modify these settings like they could in Skype for business.
If I was hosting a large Teams meeting and running a webinar you can see how disruptive entrance and exit tones would be as participants come and go. The problem is that I can't just disable them for a specific users as this bridge setting is on or off for all users.
To me this seems like a huge oversight and not feature parity with what Skype for Business audio conferencing offered.
Users who schedule a Teams meeting will see a new setting in the Meeting Options page to “Announce when callers join or leave”. for PSTN/dial-in participants.

Please bring this back!!! it's a must-have for project managers - it will help keep our sanity and avoid surprises.
A much needed feature !!!!. Hope this is added soon.
Enabling/Disable an entry tone absolutely should be an option that needs to be available per meeting. "Other" (Webex) meeting providers permit several options to be available to the end user. Please make this change ASAP!
Please give individual users an option to turn off entry tones for individual MS TEAMS based meetings. We are hosting a bi-monthly call now with over 200 people. It is very annoying hearing a tone every time someone joins a call this big!!!
When holding a large training and recording, it becomes hard to hear the presenter where there is a tone for every participant that comes in late
This would be very useful. I need to keep track of attendance at meetings. If someone joins after it starts, I won't know unless I look at the users pane which isn't always visible during a screen share.
It's weird this is only a tenant-level setting. This tells me enterprises must not be using Teams conferencing fully yet.
It's unfortunate this is a tenant-level setting. For a large corporation, it makes sense to have this setting at the meeting level so it can be adjusted and turned off for a meeting that has a large number of dial-in attendees as the tones are very distracting.

I would love to have the option to turn them off and on as needed. If given the choice of one or the other, I would keep them off.
Very useful option - let's add it
Yes, it is a great feature.
Great if this can be set in the options of each meeting

the ability to change from beep to no beep for each meeting via the meeting options would be great.
It would ideal to mimic the setting in Skype for Business where each user can set a default and would also be able to be changed on an individual meeting level. The tones are very useful for meetings where most have to dial-in by phone rather than using the teams app, and it would be good to selectively disable for department-wide meetings that have many attendees.
Please take a look at this despite low voting numbers. I belong to a >6k organization and I can tell you it is a weekly conversation with angry Users because the tones are turned on for everyone.
The meeting organizer at the very least should have the option to turn tones on/off. It would be better if each User had the ability to do the same.

much needed option
this one is so much needed.

I believe, in general, Teams must copy all the "Good known and popular" features of Skype automatically instead of let users come back with complaints and voting options each and every time - this could take ages for Microsoft to polish Teams and make it "Useful" to its users.

I have a proposal, before start the meeting time(such as 9:00), there is a alert when someone dial in, after 9:00, no need alert us some one dial in
