Hello!  Has anyone here successfully integrated a Polycom infrastructure with Teams using RealConnect for Office 365 or RealConnect for Clariti?  Looking for your thoughts on user experience, ease of use, etc.  For example, do you have full meeting control like audience mute, individual mute and meeting roster from a GroupSeries connected through one of these two interop solutions?  Or do you just get basic join / leave controls similar to the legacy interop solution?  Do the codecs join as individual users or do they join a VMR, then a single VMR joins the Teams meeting?  Is there audio in the content sharing?

 

Thanks!
