Teams meeting settings related to who can present or share their screen have changed
Only the organiser can present initially (you can change this)
The meeting option ‘Who can present’ is changing from ‘Everyone’ to ‘Only me’. Attendees can’t present their screen or mute others unless the meeting organiser allows this.
To allow attendees to present
Meeting attendees can’t share their screen or mute others unless the meeting organiser allows this.
To allow others to present (share their screen):
- Start the meeting
- View the participants
- Click on the ellipses next to the name of the person you want to give access to
- Make them a presenter from the popup menu
To allow everyone in the meeting to present: click the three elipses at the top of the meeting, select meeting details, then meeting options. This will allow you to set ‘anyone’ as an option rather than specific individuals.
Why this has changed
In order to support the development of blended learning at the University. The changes were requested by the academic community and supported by the Directors of Education, the E-Learning Team, and University Autumn Taskforce planning group.
If you have any questions particularly about this change, please contact IT Service Desk by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01227 82 4888.
