    So important for generating a good community feel with remote working. Producer should be able to select multiple video feeds so the audience get to see the discussion, not just one speaker at a time.

    This is also problematic in the school setting. Students are able to forward the join link to other students who are not in their class. These students can join the meeting even though they are not members of the class 'team' or 'channel'. Students enter the meeting directly, as they are members of the organisation; there is no option to force internal users to use the lobby at present.

    Thanks everyone for your feedback on this. As more educators look for ways to create secure assessments (especially remotely) this is one of the options we are investigating.

    Thanks to everyone who has voted on this. The team is making progress to ensure we have a safe and secure way to allow teachers to “hard mute” students during a meeting. We will share more details as we have them.

    There is no setting in the tenant to disable status messages for students. So even though students have chat turned off, they are able to send each other IMs by an @mention in their status. i.e. there is a backdoor for students to be able to chat via Teams even when administrator has turned it off.

    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: …

    Our workaround for this is to ban chat / calls for students. Staff invite students to a meeting.

    This feature request is being reviewed by the feature team. No new details to share at this time.

    Meanwhile, feel free to share why you need this in class teams / staff teams, and what you need to see (ie # read / list of users read / timestamp of read) and for what purpose.

    Currently we have turned off chat and calls for students. This means that teachers cannot initiate a chat to a student, or call a student. Teachers need to be able to initiate chat and video calls, but we want to continue to block students from making calls and holding private chat.
