Since the inception of Microsoft Teams, almost all users were either requesting Microsoft using “User Voice” or waiting for Microsoft to enable Meeting organizers to view or export a list of attendees, including enter and exit times, duration, etc.
Though it took a very long time but on 19th May 2020, Microsoft announced that they enabled download of a meeting attendance list during a meeting. The report can be downloaded only by the organizer of the meeting and not by attendees.
The work is in progress on enabling download after a meeting has concluded.
This feature is disabled by default and needs to be enabled via admin policy.
How to enable the attendee report feature in Meeting policy?
Currently only PowerShell can be used to modify this setting.
Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy cmdlet can be used to edit the existing meeting policy or New-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy can be used to create a new Teams meeting policy and assign it to users.
Below is the command to edit the existing meeting policy to enable this feature.
Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy -identity “Meeting Policy Name”-AllowEngagementReport $true
This is a per-user policy and can be selectively assigned to users.
How to download the Meeting attendee report
The organizer of the Teams Meeting can save a record of who has attended the meeting by following below steps:
a. During the meeting, select Show Participants and choose Download attendee list.
b. The report will be downloaded as .CSV file. The file contains the name, join time, and leave time of all meeting attendees.
Note: The attendance report can only be downloaded while the meeting is in progress and participants are still present.
