We are planning to set up a meeting room device running MS Teams Room. Multiple users will access the meeting room. I like to configure the Teams Room so that users can only select the Join meeting options on the screen.
No other options like (browser/dial pad etc.) are available to the user.

Can I configure the meeting room device in kiosk mode?

 

Thank you

Hi,
The Microsoft Teams Room systems only show the scheduled meeting, there is no browsers or other applications on MTR devices. If you don't assign a Phone System license to the MTR account it will not show the dial pad.

MTR devices are running in kiosk mode.

Hi @t_s_ghosh

As Linus mentions, if you do not assign the calling plan to the room, then it will not have a dial pad icon.

You cannot remove the New Meeting icon, however what you could do is apply an address book policy. I did this for Teams Phones but it also applies for Microsoft Teams Rooms, just tested it. Will post a new blog showing this too shortly. Here's the blog post on setting up ABP https://www.graham-walsh.com/microsoft-teams-phone-and-microsoft-exchange-address-book-policy/
Here's a video overview of a device with/without an Address Book Policy https://youtu.be/ZsswQLYRr-c
