Meeting chat moderation settings

From Microsoft Corporation

MC224359, Plan For Change, Published date: Oct 15, 2020New feature, User impact

Major update: AnnouncementApplies To: All

We are updating the Meeting options to allow an organizer to manage participants ability to chat prior to, during and after a meeting.

Key Points:

  • Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID: 67175
  • Timing: begin mid-November and expect to complete by the end of November
  • Control: Meeting Organizer

How this will affect your organization:

Once available, meeting organizers will be able to set the “Allow meeting chat” setting within the Meeting options. This will enable them to manage participants ability to chat prior to, during and after a meeting.

Note: There are 3 options for this setting:

  1. On (default): allows chat at any time.
  2. Off: will make meeting chat read only and no one can send messages in chat including the organizer.
  3. During the meeting only: participants can send message during the meeting only and the organizer can send messages all the time.

What you need to do to prepare:

Consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.
