We have recently starting having our daily team meetings ("huddles" in the Lean vocabulary) virtually. We all join the meeting via our laptops. One frustration a few people have mentioned is not knowing when they can say something. Is there a "beep" or "chime" that people can use to say "I want to speak now"? If there is not one in Teams, is there something external that people can use? There are other methods (raise your hand, say "question" and your name, leave enough space after each topic for feedback), but we wonder if there is a technological solution to this problem.

Theres not! But the raise your hand feature is planned! See here:

For now, use the chat to communicate

@adam deltinger are there work a rounds that are recommended until it is done?  We are on GCC tenant and know that it may be quite awhile until it reaches us.  With the social distancing, we need to hold city council meetings that have the public who will want to 'raise a hand'

@adam deltinger Adam, we are on GCC tenant and even if it is coming soon for private sector, are there suggested work a rounds that we can use in the meantime?

@gvanbuhlerI know this is supposed to be Microsoft but considering they haven't realeased the feature yet, some groups are using a program called Zoom which does have the raise your hand feature

@bgs380, that is actually what my organization has decided to go with.  Thank you
