Hi,

 

I'm using Teams as a way to conduct exercise classes.

 

  • What's the current limit for number of people allowed in a video call at the same time?  I would be the organiser.
  • How do I always ensure I'm the biggest screen during a call?  Can all the participants always pin me?
  • How can I mark participants as an attendee?

Thanks

Hi @JoeSirichas180 

 

If call is organized as a meeting, limit is 300 participants. If call is started from chat, limit is 20.

 

Call participants can pin your video, but currently you cannot control how your video is shown.

 

Participants can be marked as attendees from People, right-clicking a person (or from three dots) and

selecting Make an attendee. If you want to control this beforehand, you can set presenter settings on meeting options.

@JoeSirichas180 Here is a reference document you could use 

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams

 

Below are the answers to your questions:

 

1. 300 participants allowed in a Teams meeting.

2. Meeting participants should "Pin" your video on their screen. They can always pin you.

3. Once you setup the meeting you can open the meeting and click "Meeting Options". In "Meeting Options" select "Only Me" for who can present.
