Teams meeting participant report updates

Title of Notification

Date: Sep 3, 2020



In June (MC209710) we provided Teams meeting organizers with a participant report that includes join and leave times. We are making key changes to improve functionality and provide additional participant data in the report.


When This Will Happen

We will begin rolling this out early February (previously mid-September) and expect the rollout to be complete in mid-February (previously end of October).


How This Will Affect Your Organization

There are two areas of improvement:

  1. Download point changed from roster view
    The Teams meeting organizer can download the Attendance Report from the meeting chat once the meeting is over. 
    Only the meeting organizer will see the Attendance Report. The recording, transcript and participant list will be grouped together in chat if the meeting is recorded. Otherwise, only the participant list will be available in chat. 

New participant data
The report will now include these data points: duration, email address, meeting start time, and meeting title.

What You Need To Do To Prepare

When we introduced this feature in June, feature was disabled by default. It will remain off by default. 

  • We will not change your policy setting; this update will honor your current state, whether that is on or off.

You can use a PowerShell cmdlet to turn this feature ON:

Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -Identity Global - AllowEngagementReport "Enabled"
