We have students that are using teams and are setting inappropriate status messages. We need a way to prevent them from setting this message. What options do we have?

I guess you cannot do this at the moment. I was searching for it to, but found an user voice for it:

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39788161-prevent-users-from-ch...

This user voice is about the status, not the actual message, but that does have a connection with each other.

@Ricardo92  Thanks. This is very much needed in a K-12 environment.

@MelWade Thanks for sharing. So there is no other option to wait until this will be implemented.
