Microsoft Teams recent Roadmap updates

I thought I take a look at the most recent roadmap updates. There has been several changes from September to October rollout but that is always to be expected: roadmap schedule is the best estimate of the time.

As always it is best to check the real time situation directly from the roadmap.

  1. Question: if I am the organizer of a Teams meeting, and during that meeting I need to add someone (via their email) to that meeting, what is the easiest easiest way to add someone new 1) without interrupting the current, ongoing meeting, and 2) without all the current attendees from getting new notices?
    Thank you.


    1. Two options:
      – Go to people-view in the meeting and invite someone via email directly (Teams will try to call them)
      – from the same view, the link picture right of “invite someone” -box. Copy join information from there and send them an email where you have pasted that info. It contains the Join-link to the meeting.
