Is Microsoft planning to add "Meeting Options" feature similar to what we had in SFB to force mute on entry? This is becoming a major headache for large meetings with over 100s of remote participants. One of the main problems is that anyone has the ability "Mute All" at any time which it mutes the main speaker line as well.

Hi @mshariar

There are a number of uservoices open for this currently, including

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38183704-please-have-the-teams...

Would recommend you vote to push them up the agenda. Whilst Microsoft have set the Teams client to have camera and audio off by default for many this has not gone far enough and would like to see mute on entry and control to be able to un-mute.

There is an AMA on here on the 22nd about migration from SfB to Teams. May be worthwhile bringing this up as a barrier to organisations moving across and make it visible to the Team.

Hope this answers your question

Best, Chris

Yup, that and similar issues have been discussed and acknowledged by Microsoft. Controls are coming, but we cannot share any timeframes yet.
