Hello!

 

I am receiving the error message "You can't send messages because you are not a member of the chat", despite the fact that I am the organizer of the meeting. 

This seems to usually occur when a different presenter shares their screen in the meetings, and when they stop sharing I regain access. 

 

I'm hoping this is a simple setting somewhere that I can uncheck? 

 

Thanks!

I do not know if this is your case but I faced that when I created the meeting with a different tenant by mistake

Thanks for the response! I'm not in IT, would that include creating the meeting in Outlook via the Teams plugin, rather than in Teams itself?

 

edit// I checked, and it's all within the same tenant. 

Hello,
Tried some other things to try to reproduce but couldn't.
Is this happening in Teams Desktop or on the browser?
It's happening in the desktop client, but also sometimes in the browser version (in Chrome).
