Microsoft plans to make some significant changes to the team meeting participants’ access to chat conversations based on how they were invited to the meeting. The list of features was recently published on the Microsoft Teams roadmap and will be rolled out in December.
With this change, all participants who participated in a Teams meeting through a meeting link and were not added to the original meeting invitation will lose access to the content of the meeting once the meeting is over. It means they no longer have access to chats, files, notes, and more. It is important to note that these changes only affect new individual meetings and recurring meetings. They should not affect previously scheduled/channel meetings.
Microsoft Teams has grown very fast since the onset of coronavirus pandemic and has just passed its 115 million daily active users. The rapid growth of Microsoft Teams shows no signs of slowing down. Other features set up to reach the popular collaboration platform include Breakout rooms, pinned messages, and more.
