Hello everyone,

 

We're slowing opening up Teams to our company, but would like to prevent users from using other Teams features like data storage, chat, calls etc. Is there a way to only grant permissions or create a policy for users to only have meeting access?

 

Thank you!

Hi @Uscadmin 

You can disable chat  and other similar features for users in a Meeting policy. Set MeetingChatEnabledType to Disabled using PowerShell to disable chat. Similarly, you can disable other required features. Please refer the available cmdlet in the following page
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/skype/set-csteamsmeetingpolicy?view=skype-ps

 

Thanks,

Manu

Thanks for the reply @manuphilip 

 

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these cmdlets looks like they set policy while already in a meeting?

 

I'm looking to disable the features in the attached screenshot and grant users only the ability to join/host meetings.

Hi @Uscadmin 

Please remove the apps not needed in Teams applications from here in Teams admin center
