Microsoft Teams panels are now generally available to enterprise customers

At Ignite 2020, Microsoft announced a new category of devices called Microsoft Teams Panels. Microsoft Teams Panels is a compact digital display that provides a space and time management solution. Using Teams Panels, employees can book an available meeting room on-site or search for another time slot and reserve it directly from the panel.

Microsoft recently announced the general availability of Microsoft Teams Panels. Crestron is the first hardware partner to market Microsoft Teams Panels.

In the coming months, Microsoft will add the following new features to Teams Panels.

  • Room Capacity Warning uses selected cameras in the room to detect when the maximum number of people allowed per room has been reached.
  • With Rooms Near by, employees can view the building’s floor plan and book another room when a space is not available.
  • Room Check-in Notification sends a message to the display in the room that people are waiting outside in the next meeting.
  • Remove unused scheduled space identifies and enables removal of “ghost” meetings to free up unused meeting space time slots.
