How can I change participant settings for a Microsoft Teams meeting?

Although default participant settings are determined by an org's IT admin, a meeting organizer may want to change them for a specific meeting.


You can make changes to your meeting settings before a meeting by going to Meeting options. There are three ways to get there:

  1. In Teams, go to Calendar Meetings button , select a meeting, and then Meeting options.

  2. In a meeting invitation, select Meeting options.

  3. During a meeting, select Show participants  Show participants icon  in the meeting controls. Then, above the list of participants, choose Manage permissions The manage participants icon in Microsoft Teams .


All of these will take you to a web page, where you'll see a few options for changing participant settings.
