Meeting policy settings – Designated presenter role mode
This is a per-user policy. This setting lets you change the default value of the Who can present? setting in Meeting options in the Teams client. This policy setting affects all meetings, including Meet Now meetings.
Currently, you can only use PowerShell to configure this policy setting. You can edit an existing Teams meeting policy by using the Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy cmdlet. Or, create a new Teams meeting policy by using the New-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy cmdlet and assign it to users.
To specify the default value of the Who can present? setting in Teams, set the DesignatedPresenterRoleMode parameter to one of the following:
- EveryoneUserOverride: All meeting participants can be presenters. This is the default value. This parameter corresponds to the Everyone setting in Teams.
- EveryoneInCompanyUserOverride: Authenticated users in the organization, including guest users, can be presenters. This parameter corresponds to the People in my organization setting in Teams.
- EveryoneInSameAndFederatedCompanyUserOverride: Authenticated users in the organization, including guest users and users from federated organizations, can be presenters. This parameter corresponds to the People in my organization and trusted organizations setting in Teams.
- OrganizerOnlyUserOverride: Only the meeting organizer can be a presenter and all meeting participants are designated as attendees. This parameter corresponds to the Only me setting in Teams.
Roll out starts: mid-November
Roll out completed: Late November
When you schedule your meeting in Outlook you have the option “Meeting Options”, click on that link while holding CTRL-button.
From Teams calendar you can also select Meeting options, but you have to send the meeting first. It is after you sent away the meeting invite you can see Meeting Options in the meeting.
Here you can select who should be a presenter (Who can present?).
- Everyone (default) – This is the option that will be selected if you don’t change anything. Everyone in the meeting will be a presenter when they join.
- People in my organization – People in the same Office 365 tenant as you will be presenters when they join the meeting
- Specific people – Select who should be a presenter. You have to send the invite util you can select other presenters.
- Only me – The egoistic choice but maybe the easiest.
To select specific people send your invite first, then select the meeting options link. You can only select people from your organisation, not external attendees.
- Select Specific People in the “Who can present”-dropdown (1).
