Assign Nickname to Meeting Attendees Attending by Phone
When meeting attendees join by phone (ie. through a conference bridge), it is difficult to identify who they are. If there was an option to assign a name or nickname to the phone number (ie. 555-5555 = Bob, 555-4444 = Sally), it would be a lot easier to manage - especially if the call goes on for a long time. If there are a lot of callers, this would make it easier to determine who is who.
This would be best if the name was assigned for everyone to see, but would also work if individuals could privately assign nicknames.

Please please implement this feature. Make Teams feel so much more personal. :)

Please implement this -- it's a key feature of Webex that we've lost at our org by switching to Teams, and would make keeping track of meeting participants a much more streamlined process.
We lost a "personal" touch when we switched to TEAMS Meeting - no personal meeting place (available to date). This feature will provide a sense of personalization to the attendees and the moderator.

Thank you so much for this suggestion. I agree this is a very important function to implement into Teams Meetings.
This is very important when meeting require a quorum of attendees and need to be documented. Thank you!
