Prevent students from starting a meeting unattended
It would be very useful to be able to prevent students from starting a meeting unattended, regardless of what type of meetings it is.
This because, when working with younger students, the best option is that only teachers can start new meeting (with other teachers and/or with students).
We should have " admit all in lobby" option if "students - wait in lobby" is enabled. Thank you.
And please consider adding " End meeting for all" in Android app
My dear Microsoft team,
why the time of your reaction to amend Teams is so slow?
With best regards,
Microsoft, you know you have been slacking. There is no reason Zoom can make so many updates and changes while your teams video app is still a year behind them.
A waiting room is a must
The ability to mute others and lock it so they can't unmute is essential.
Kicking others out of the room without the access to come back in for that day is needed.
These are basic, high priority, security features.
I have seen the addition of making it so no one else can take over the presenter spot; however, what's the point of being able to remove someone from the session if they can walk right back in. Raise hand feature is nice...but again pointless if a member can simply unmute themselves. A good amount of the population is impatient and will simply ignore a raise hand rule if there is a quick way around it.
Your solution for fixing the ability to re-enter a meeting was to add an end meeting button? Seriously, you KNOW anyone with that link can just re-enter, regardless of a meetings end.
Fix the basic and needed administrative tools that are needed in a teams meeting first..then worry about making a pretty background. Zoom is one message board away from being greater than Teams has been since it was created. At this point, just be glad they are not interested in that department.

From an education safe-guarding issue, especially for younger children, this is very important feature that schools require.
Teams should have resolved this, being a Microsoft platform Teams must be ahead of the issue and not wait for complaints and votes. Be the leader and think on behalf of all your users. It is causing chaos in on the platform and resulting in a negative few from its users (especially those who are new to the platform). Teachers can not control all elements and thus resulting in learners missing out on education.
This is an essential function!
Definitely needed for safeguarding students.
Please add this feature! School children should not be able to start a meeting unattended!
Yes! This happened to me with my Spanish class and several students joined the meeting that was created by a student, and they all missed my entire meeting! I didn't figure this out until after the meeting ended, as I was teaching the lesson, of course! Ay caramba, what a fiasco that was! :(
This is an essential feature in education that many of my clients have asked if it is possible to set
Critical function! I have spent two days trying to work out how to make this happen so disappointed it was not already a default
School districts have rigorous protocols related to the presence of adult supervision for students while attending the school. In the elementary and middle school level, the only place students can go without adult supervision is the washroom and just for a few minutes. A parent volunteer cannot work inside a classroom before he/she submit a criminal record check. Then, why are we providing the same students with the possibility of getting online unsupervised?

This feature is critical for schools for so many reasons!!!
I agree that school sponsored meetings taking place through the school's platform should be started and ended by teachers or administrators only. There are too many cases of online bullying that can happen while we are not monitoring. I would never let students into my classroom without me or another adult there to monitor.
This feature is very important for schools!
This is required honestly. It's a deal breaker for teams ...

Students should not be allowed to start a meeting unattended.
How can I see the full list of all learners who participated in the meeting instead of just the number of participants and a few students showing up. This important for taking register.

This issue can be helped if all students can be redirected to the Lobby like in case:
Yes. Definitely a good idea!
