Meeting options in Teams

When you have created a Teams meeting, there are a number of Meeting Options. to access these open up the meeting from your calendar and you will be able to select Meeting Options  Illustrative image


Or if you have created a lecture link in Moodle you will have the option to amend the meeting options before adding the link to the Moodle page  Illustrative image


Or if you have already created your meeting/lecture then if you are the meeting organiser, go into your meeting (you can do this any time beforehand or during) click on Participants Illustrative image

And then click on the ellipses (three dots) in the top right set of icons, and click manage permissions. Illustrative image


You will then see the meeting options, using the dropdown menu you will be able to choose who can Bypass the lobby, at the moment the options are:

  • Everyone
  • People in my organisation and trusted organisations
  • People in my organisation
  • Only me

There is also an option to turn off Announce when callers join or leave by turning the button to yes or no

lastly you have an option to choose who can present, if you are arranging a meeting on behalf of someone else, or if you have a number of presenters in a session you may want to specify these people*.  Or you can set it so that everyone has the opportunity to present, just people from your organisation or just yourself. 

Microsoft help page: Roles in a Teams meeting

If you choose specific people, a dropdown box will appear allowing you to select people who are invited to the meeting*

*If you wish to specify people, they must be added to the meeting when you create it, at present you will not be able to select them if you add them to the meeting afterwards.

If you have made changes that require saving, the save button will appear, click this to save your changes
