MC399074: Enable Q&A in Teams Meetings via Meeting Options

Teams meetings organizers can soon set up Q&A in their meetings via Meeting Options. Q&A is perfect for large or structured meetings – such as trainings, town hall, all hands and more. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 97020.

Question & Answer for Teams webinars & meetings. By enabling Q&A to any Teams Webinars or Meetings through Meeting Options, Meeting Organizers will be able to create either moderated or unmoderated Q&A experience.

When Q&A is enabled, meeting attendees can join their Teams meeting, click the Q&A icon, and ask questions and engage in the discussion.

When this will happen

We expect to start rolling out in mid-July and expect to complete rollout by late July.

How this will affect your organization

Meeting Organizers and Co-organizers can enable Q&A in their meetings through Meeting Options. They can toggle “Enable Q&A” to yes to enable structured conversations in their meeting. When Q&A is enabled, meeting attendees can join their Teams meeting, click the Q&A icon, and ask questions and engage in the discussion.

When Q&A is enabled, meeting attendees can join their Teams meeting, click the Q&A icon, and ask questions and engage in the discussion.

Moderators can choose to enable moderation to review questions before they are published live.

Moderators can choose to enable moderation to review questions before they are published live.

With Q&A available to enable through Meeting Options, the Q&A app in the Teams App Store will be removed in August.

Going forward, meeting organizers and co-organizers must use Meeting Options to enable Q&A in their meetings. If there are existing meetings where Q&A was added from the Teams App Store, please remove the Q&A app and switch to using Q&A enabled through Meeting Options. Not using Meeting Options to enable Q&A will result in two Q&A icons showing in the meeting with instructions on how to remove the Q&A app that was added from the Teams App Store.

Note: There is no data lost when switching Q&A from the Teams App Store to enabling via Meeting Options. All questions, conversations, comments, etc. will continue to be available in the Q&A experience enabled via Meeting Options.

What you need to do to prepare

Please inform Meeting Organizers at your organization, who have added the Q&A app via the App Store, to remove the Q&A app from their meetings and only enable Q&A through Meeting Options using these instructions.

Your organization may have requirements to limit which organizers can enable Q&A. You can use PowerShell to manage which organizers can enable Q&A. Please note that the controls to manage the Q&A policy in the Teams admin center is coming in late-July.
