Last September, Microsoft announced that it would be introducing several improvements to Teams meeting attendance reports. The company started rolling out this update a few weeks ago and the rollout should be complete by the end of this month.
First, the company has introduced the ability to download the attendance report after the meeting. This means that meeting hosts can now download it from the meeting chat once the meeting is over. The transcript, recording, and attendance report are grouped together in the chat when the meeting is recorded. Otherwise, the attendance report will automatically appear in the meeting chat.
In addition, Microsoft Teams has added some extra information in the report. The attendee list now includes the meeting duration, email address, meeting start time, and meeting title. This is in addition to the name, role, time of attendance, and time off of the meeting participants. Karoliina Kettukari, a Microsoft MVP, recently shared a screenshot of the new attendance report format on Twitter.
This particular feature has been requested by thousands of users since the ability to download the attendance reports was introduced in May last year. The new experience is designed to make it easier for managers and educators to track participant participation in remote meetings. In case you missed it, Microsoft Teams recently rolled out a new live transcription feature for English-speaking users in the United States.
