Online classes are in full swing. A few days back when online school started, there was an issue that blew my mind every time. Some people from the class lost their cool and started removing people from the meeting. This was too disturbing. Well, we found out the solution soon enough. This is what you can do if “Someone Keeps Removing Me From MS Teams Meeting”
MS Teams is one of the most popular video conferencing apps these days. I wrote a lot about this app before the pandemic but never knew I will end up actually using it with a routine. My university has bought the license of this app for its students, so our online classes are getting conducted on MS Teams.
There’s too much to Microsoft Teams. You can manage teams/classes, add all the students, set up channels, schedule meetings. Moreover, you can take quizzes, submit assignments attach other Microsoft services such as MS calendar, using MS Streams you can record the meeting and it gets uploaded quickly and is available instantly.
To get back to the problem, our professors faced this problem a few days back. Everyone was new to the app and thus some freaky heads took advantage of that. I will tell you what, I got removed from the meeting 16 times. Yup, from one meeting.
“Someone Keeps Removing Me From MS Teams Meeting”
This is done by performing some settings before the organizer, schedules the meeting. These settings can be done during the meeting. The settings include giving the participants role in the meeting. You need to set up all the members to “Attendees” while only the presenter can present in the meeting except if the presenter and organizer explicitly allow someone to present. During the default MS Teams meeting the settings allow every member to be a presenter, giving them the option to remove and mute others from the meeting.

1. Go to the team.
