Microsoft is rolling out chat moderation settings which allows an organizer of meeting to manage participant’s ability to chat prior to, during and after a meeting. :stareyes:

 

There are 3 options for this setting:

  1. Enabled (default): allows participants chat at any time.
  2. Disabled: this will make meeting chat read only and no one can send messages in chat including the organizer.
  3. In-meeting only: participants can send message during the meeting only and the organizer can send messages all the time.
