【 Office365 アップデート 】会議チャット@Teams の制御パラメータが新登場

Office365 に関する Major Change Update 情報(2019/4/10付)をご案内いたします。

従来、Teams における会議チャットは、『 AllowUserChat 』設定によって制御することとなっていました。しかし、これは言い換えると、『 ユーザ間でのメッセージ交換 』と『 会議チャット 』が同一のものとして扱われ、全く同じポリシーのもとでしか制御できなかったということです。

同仕様は『 企業において Teams の積極活用を推進しつつも、一定の制御を施していこう 』と考えた際に、少し柔軟性に欠けるポイントになっていました。しかし、今後、同仕様が改善され、会議チャットの制御パラメータが、『 AllowUserChat 』設定から、『 MeetingChatEnabledType 』という新しい設定に分離されるとのことです。

We’re updating the way meetings chat is controlled by creating a new, separate setting in CsTeamsMeetingPolicy to manage meetings chat, as a change from previous practice where meetings chat followed CsTeamsMessagingPolicy. We’ll begin rolling this feature out soon, but will do it in stages to provide time for customers to make any changes.

[How does this affect me?]

At customers’ request, we are making some changes to the way meetings chat is controlled. Prior to the change, it was controlled by the AllowUserChat setting of the CsTeamsMessagingPolicy. After this change, it will be controlled by a new setting, MeetingChatEnabledType, of the CsTeamsMeetingPolicy.

The change will be rolled out selectively on the basis of users’ upgrade mode:

Users with effective upgrade mode of SfBOnly, SfBWithTeamsCollab, or SfBWithTeamsCollabAndMeetings do not have access to the Chat tab and hence do not conduct private or group chat in Teams. However virtually all such customers want to and should be permitted to chat in meetings, and many have requested this capability. Prior to this change they were not able to do so. For these users, this change will take effect on or after April 9.
On the other hand, users with effective upgrade mode of Islands or TeamsOnly do have access to the Chat tab unless chat has been explicitly disabled in CsTeamsMessaging policy. When that happens, they also do not have access to meetings chat today. An example is EDU tenants, who frequently ban the use of all sorts of chat (both private chat, group chat and meetings chat) for students. For these users, this change will take effect on or after May 15. Prior to the change, tenant admins should review users for whom they want meetings chat to remain off, and make sure these users are granted the new setting.
The roll out will be completed worldwide for all tenants by 5/31/2019.

[What do I need to do to prepare for this change?]

Review your requirements and policies with respect to meetings chat. If you do not require meetings chat to be off for any user, you do not need to do anything. If you require meetings chat to be off for specific users, we recommend you apply CsTeamsMeetingPolicy’s MeetingChatEnabledType setting with the Enum value of Disabled to these users
