Teams: Meeting Options

Teams has default settings for meeting participants that can be adjusted for a specific meeting. The organizer can determine who waits in the lobby, how callers enter the meeting, who is given the presenter role, whether attendees can unmute their microphone, and enable or disable meeting chat.

Changing your meeting options

If you are the meeting organizer, you can make these changes on the Meeting options webpage (pictured below). For a scheduled or "Meet Now" meeting, you can change them during your meeting. For a scheduled meeting, you can also change the settings for participants ahead of time.
