Hi all,

 

We've been having issues with students misusing the chat section during remote learning (Teams Meeting).

 

It would be great to have the ability to disallow chat in meetings either during the meeting setup, or in the admin portal.

 

Regards

Dan

You can disable chat for users in a Meeting policy, this will stop them from chatting in all meetings. Set MeetingChatEnabledType to Disabled using powershell.

You can't disable meeting chats per meeting, but there is an uservoice requesting this. You can vote for it here:

Hi Linus,

Perfect, thank you

I found this:

It’s going to be under messaging policies now under the newish Teams Admin center. You can apply policies to students and then chat off there in that policy.

You can mute all students or individual students and they won't be able to post in the chat during meetings. Meetings have to be hosted on a team channel.
