Our institution has a weekly meeting with all members of our Team. Often, we invite non-team members into our weekly meeting. We share the weekly team meeting Team's link and they join the meeting. However, we would prefer that the non-team member be allowed to see our meeting "chat". The non-team member is getting notifications and is able to see the meeting chat conversation through out the entire meeting.

How to we remove the ability for a non-team member to see our meeting chat?

    Hi @Severson, Chris ,

    As far as I know it is currently not possible to achieve this, there's a feedback suggestion for this which you can vote for over at the Microsoft Team's uservoice page:

    Hi @Severson, Chris ,

    You can disable guest to chat in Teams meeting, but there is no direct way to block guest seeing Teams meeting converstation.

    The following links show detailed setting about how to disable guest chat in Microsoft teams:
