block students licensed users from call functionality
On the services and addins options for teams, we could previously block certain feature by license pack. Since the migration to the new Teams admin site, the feature is no longer available. Unfortunately students tend to use the calling feature to prank call staff members, so its up for debate if having this features is desirable. Being able to globally turn off this feature via a toggle switch would be very useful. Along with the other options that use to be in the old admin panel.
Its a shame people are using this feature for negative reasons, however, as a student myself having to self-teach many topics for my GCSE's and being set numerous online tasks, discussing ideas with peers would be extremely beneficial. Not only would it improve our independence as opposed to being spoon fed, it would also help with the well-being of students due to the limitation of human interaction we have. Just like we are encouraged to study and revise as a group, miscrosoft teams could be used as a positive platform to do the same as going to revise with our friends is not possible during these times. Not all students trying to make the best of their future despite these difficult times, should be denied this feature because of a handful of immature users.
