Quality Check Your Teams Link Permissions

If you are using your current Daily Class Video Meeting Links to Teams in Schoology then we suggest you do a quality control check on your current links to make sure the permissions are setup correctly for "Only Me" setting for the lobby and who can present.

Remember all students can and you should be expecting them all to sign into any Teams Meeting Link. Students can sign in if they use Teams on mobile app, web, or device app on their student device or a personal device. Do not admit Guests. Only Admit students who sign in correctly.
