Ability to pause/turn off meeting chat (both during and after meeting)
I would like to disable & enable the chat function attached to a recurring meeting (or a past meeting). Students use the chat all hours and I can't be there to moderate.
Thank you for your feedback. The ability to enable and disable meeting chat in a meeting is now available. To learn more, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-dbd5-45f9-aae9-a70e6354f88e.

Or disable the chat for individuals in the moment, similar to the mute feature, but for chatting.
This would be really beneficial to stop chatting at points whilst teaching and then allow access again by turning back on when you need students to respond.

Presenters need to be able to turn off chat and not allow students to turn it back on. Same for muting mic and turning off video

We need to be able to close the chat when the meeting closes!! If it's a reoccurring meeting, the chat should only be available when the meeting is going on.

I would like to turn off the meeting chat.
Under meeting options, give the option to disable chat bar.

Please give teachers a "Turn off the chat" button. My middle school kids (up to 40 per class) are using the chat feature for jokes and sidebars. I cannot teach and monitor their off-task behavior in the chat at the same time. My team of 12 teachers today all thought this would be a great addition! Thanks- Tracy
When the Owner ends a meeting/video chat, the whole chat should end. (or at least have an option for this).
For example a teacher is running a class - via video. when the teacher ends their video, other members (students) are still involved in the meeting. There should be an option that basically says ' End entire meeting/disconnect all members"
