Hi all, we have been setting up Teams in shared meeting rooms, whilst replacing legacy VC equipment. 

 

We have setup the computer with its own account named after the meeting room, however it's been pointed out that if someone books a private meeting using that account, then when others are using the room the calendar can be browsed. Therefore people have resorted into logging in as them selves, which isn't ideal.

I wondered what others have done when implementing Teams into meeting rooms? We are using just a mini computer, Windows 10, camera, speaker phone with Office 365 installed. Nothing out of the ordinary.

 

Thanks in advance

@justanotherday Hello!
There is a long list of WHY a Teams Meeting Room is worth it aka an even longer list why having a fixed PC in the meeting room is mostly not a good idea.
You stumbled across just one topic out of this list.
My advice is to go strictly BYOM (bring your own meeting) where the users shuffle in their own notebook with their UC client and hook up via HDMI/USB to connect to fixed installed mic/speaker/camera + a large display
OR
bite tht bullet and install an MTR. Its cost will pay off pretty fast.
bye
