    In May we introduced a new user setting, Only me, that meeting organizers could select when configuring the “Who can bypass lobby?” setting for a Teams meeting. We are now making it possible for you to set Teams meeting defaults in your organization so that only meeting organizers can bypass the lobby.

    Your IT admin will now be able to set “Automatically admit people” to Organizer only

    Please note

    When set, only the organizer can join directly; all attendees will need to enter via lobby
    Once this is your tenant default, it applies to all new meetings created by the user. It does not affect meetings set up prior to this change where Meeting options were updated.
    To change the lobby setting for previously created meetings, Meeting organizers can select Meeting options in the meeting invitation for each meeting they schedule.
    For additional guidance, see Student safety meeting policies: …

    If the students use an old version of the app - it won't work... seems like a bit of a hole in the plan there my friends!

    This is 100% necessary in a school environment. Meeting invitations do not have a start time nor do they expire, and so students can use the link, as the OP says, to have unmonitored chats using what we have provided. If the lobby could be enforced, the meeting organiser has complete control at all times. It would also mean that conversations between individuals which are meant to remain confidential can't be hijacked by anyone who happens to have the link (students share things!).

    This is essential. For example, I want staff to be able to start a video call within the Team, but not students, so I need to apply the policy to students only. We need, therefore, the ability to apply meeting policies to either the Student SKU (as it used to be) or at least to a security group.

    if you have an existing post that you want to show in a different channel, you can edit the message and cross-post. This will add the top-level post to the different channel, but will not include the full set of replies. We will keep this request in mind as we evolve the cross-posting feature in the future and update if the status changes.

    Details on cross posting can be found here: https://support.office.com/article/cross-post-a-channel-conversation-in-teams-9c1252a3-67ef-498e-a7c1-dd7147b3d295.
