I've been trying to find an answer to a question:

 

"How do we prevent someone from requesting a screen share during a meeting?"

 

This is relatively simple on the surface- change or create a policy where content sharing is configured as needed, and apply that to the meeting attendees.

 

I run into the issue that brought me here when I ask this follow-up:  What if this person belongs to other meeting policies?  What if this person is also a technician who spends a great deal of timne doing screen sharing?

 

Scenario:  I am a technician, and use Teams for screen sharing and calls on a daily basis.  I work with the same five people every day, and we each freely collaborate and screen share as need be.  One day, I decide to have a meeting with all of my same five colleagues, but I want this meeting to be one where I'm presenting only, and they cannot request control, request screen share, try to share their screen, etc.  

 

How can I create a policy I apply to types of meetings?  I can apply policies to people.  I have not found a way to apply policies to different meeting types.

I should also add:

 

All users have Office 365 E3 licenses

Users do not have Exchange Online, email is managed on-prem (therefore this feature is not enabled for the O365 user)

 

 

Solution
You cannot currently do this, but I heard on a call somewhere that they are working on being able to lock down some aspects of the meetings when you are the host etc.

Well, that's the news I worried I would hear, but I do very appreciate you being direct and prompt on the response.  Thank you very much.

 

In this case, what's the best way to handle this need?  Do we need to change policies on the user(s) between meetings?

Focus on user training / awareness is what I recommend.
