We're facing a quite annoying problem with Teams meetings that causes all participants that were invited - irrespective of their response (unknown, decline, tentative) - to be brought into the meeting chat when the organiser begins the meeting and types in the chat box. We're getting a lot of users being confused as to how they ended up in a meeting chat and getting annoyed about chat notifications. Imagine how bad this is when you schedule a meeting for 'all' staff.
1 - Schedule meeting "Test meeting" in outlook or teams and select multiple participants - either through a distribution group or one by one
2 - Have one of the requested participants 'Decline' the invite
3 - Begin the meeting as the organiser
4 - Write 'Hi folks' in the meeting chat
5 - The person that declined the invite then get's a notification for 'Hi folks' for the meeting chat of "Test meeting"
They then need to leave the meeting or mute it.
Has anyone else had this and got any fixes or workarounds? Currently for large meetings, we're copying a link from another meeting and pasting it in the the invite in outlook so neither Teams or Outlook realises that it's a Teams meeting.

We still have this problem.
If someone declines a Team meeting in Outlook,
they still get notifikations in Teams (gets into the meeting).
Microsoft should have fixed it.
Mute meeting chats in Teams
By default meeting chats in Microsoft Teams will be muted until you either send a message in the chat, or join the online meeting. This will reduce notifications, but still allow you to keep track of the conversation.

@Chris Webb-- Thank you for this information. It is very useful. Unfortunately I don't see the issue in the backlog.
Users that declined a Teams meeting, still are asked to Join and still receive notices from the chat.
Why is this a problem?
I work with a number of group worldwide, many 6-12 hours separate from me. I decline many of the meetings because they occur at 2 or 3am in my local time zone. Unfortunately, we also use Teams for our on-call operational support. I cannot turn off Teams Notifications. :(
SOoo… Where can I find the address to send suggestions for the backlog? :)

II have a customer that is part of a distribution group that was sent a teams invite. She declined the meeting and got an e-mail that she now had SPAM in her account she needed to review. The e-mail was the "Declined Teams Meeting" e-mail. Is this part of this bug or something else?@johnnr892

Hi @Chris Webb ! We have this turned on but are still getting chat notifications in our Chat section of Teams. It no longer shows in the "Activity" area but does show in Chat. This will then muddy up the Chats area with meeting chats you declined. Any other way to stop all chat for meetings that are declined?
