Hi,

We have a problem. Some students mute all participants in a Teams meeting just for fun!

How can i disable this option?

Thanks

Make them an Attendee instead of Presenter. Only Presenters can mute others.

Thanks @Linus Cansby !

This solves the problem.

@Linus Cansby But what if you want to stop them from talking at all and just want to disable them from talking until you allow them to do so?

Spoiler
no seriously, is there an answer to this?
