Is there any option in Microsoft Teams to mute all the participants without allowing them to unmute back? I mean, Is there is any option for the speaker to mute all the students, and then unmute them back when I want them to speak?

Thank you so much for your prompt reply, I really appreciate it.
Regarding the Live Events, could you please give me more details?
Do you think it can be applied in classrooms? or what are the pro & cons of this option?

Right now my students in Teams are able to mute each other and even mute me. Is there a function to turn off the abilities for students to mute each other? I can see this as a really big problem in the future. Or if it notified me who was trying to mute someone else, I could deal with it that way. But as it is right now, I have some crafty students muting people who are speaking and it is turning into a "who done it?" scenario. @Christopher Hoard

I am running a class and one student is muting other students on and off and also me at times. How can I stop this?

I’ve been told of a solution. You schedule the meeting in the Teams calendar then click on the meeting in the calendar. Go to “meeting options”. This will take you to an online website. Then on the “who can present” drop down menu, change it to “only me”. This will take away all muting capabilities. It also takes away screen sharing though but there are ways to make individual students into presenters. Remember to cancel the meeting in the calendar after you are done with video otherwise students can rejoin the video without you.

People calling in don't get muted like users logging in from PCs. Is this a bug?

... and if there isn't, it would be grately appreciated! When I am in conference with my 21 adult students, there is a constant background noise from their children now staying at home. When I mute them all, it's about 20 seconds before the background noise is back, and however much I ask them to mute themselves, it does not help ...

@Christopher Hoard I second (third?) the request to push "hard-muting" options in Teams. Today, we are using a Skype meeting to broadcast periodic in-house audio meetings to internal staff only. NOBODY gets to unmute themselves, and the only live mic is the presenter one (which is actually 50-mics mixed down and fed as a mic input to Skype).
We would like to re-create this scenario in Teams.

I would like to suggest that everyone copy this URL and post on their posts about Teams on Twitter (https://twitter.com/MicrosoftTeams).
We have business customers asking about that.

we have users complain about meetings without anyone - since they came later than the stablished hour (user mistake/problem).
The main question is: If the meeting had a stablished hour to start and to end, why user are able to enter later??? Make no sense!!!
