Teams provides the meeting organizer with many options when it comes to defining the roles and permissions for online meeting participants. For example, you can choose to enable a meeting lobby, which lets the organizer define when and who is admitted into the meeting. You can also designate who can present, mute attendees, and start/stop recordings, by defining the presenters
When scheduling a meeting, you can have extra control of the meeting by clicking on the meeting options.
This will open a website that allows you to select the different the options. Make sure, you change the meeting options prior to starting the call.
Who can present?
|Everyone||Anyone who has access to the meeting link will join the meeting as a presenter.|
|People in my organization||Only people in your org will be presenters. External participants will join as attendees.|
|Specific people||Only people you choose from the list of invitees will be presenters. Everyone else will join as attendees.|
|Only me||Only the organizer will be a presenter. All other participants will join as attendees.|
A couple things to keep in mind:
- You’ll need to send your meeting invite directly to anyone you want to select as a presenter.
You won’t be able to select someone from a different org as a presenter.
