Turn on or off entry and exit announcements for meetings in Microsoft Teams

When you set up Audio Conferencing in Microsoft 365 or Office 365, you get phone numbers for your users through an audio conferencing bridge. A conferencing bridge can have one or more phone numbers that are included at the bottom of the meeting invite. These phone numbers allow users to join Microsoft Teams meetings by dialing in.

As an admin, you can manage whether an entry and exist announcement is played when participants who dialed into the meeting join or exit.


We are frequently updating how you can manage features, so the steps here might be a little different from what you see.

Setting meeting join options using the Microsoft Teams admin center

You must be a Teams service admin to make these changes. See Use Teams administrator roles to manage Teams to read about getting admin roles and permissions.

  1. Navigate to Meetings > Conference Bridges.

  2. At the top of the Conference Bridges page, select Bridge Settings.

  3. In the Bridge settings pane, enable or disable Meeting entry and exit notifications. This setting is enabled by default. If you disable it, participants in the meeting aren't notified when someone enters or leaves.

  4. Under Entry/exit announcement type, select Names or phone numbers or Tones.


    By default, external participants can't see the phone numbers of dialed-in participants. If you want to maintain the privacy of these phone numbers, select Tones for Entry/exit announcement type (this prevents the numbers from being read out by Teams).

  5. If you chose Names or phone numbers, enable or disable Ask callers to record their name before joining the meeting.

  6. Select Save.
