Is it possible to set the standard for meeting chats to "In-meeting only"? I can find this option within the meeting options for a particular meeting but not within the Teams Admin Center.

Thanks

Yeah! There’s no way of doing this today except manually on every meeting! Hopefully that will be an option soon!

Til then create/upvote here:
