Meeting Join Custom Branding

Reference ID: MC268191 | Effective: August 30, 2021

MC268191 – Updated August 03, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience. Additionally, this feature will be available as a preview until December 31, 2021. After that, an Advanced Communications license is required to continue using this feature, as noted below.

This new release of meeting Join Custom Branding will allow tenant admins to upload their company logo to the Teams admin portal so it appears on the meeting pre-join and lobby screens for meetings organized by members of their tenant.

The logo will be seen by users joining on desktop, web, and mobile.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 79957.

When this will happen:

Rollout will begin at the end of August and be complete in early September (previously late July).

How this will affect your organization:

This update gives users who join your meetings a branded experience distinctive to your tenant. The feature is part of the Advanced Communications license, meaning the logo will appear only if the meeting organizer has the license. The feature has been implemented as a meetings policy to give tenant admins choice and the flexibility to apply the logo to certain members or globally.

  • Multiple logos can be upload at once, allowing you to assign different logos to different people or groups if that’s helpful for your tenant.
  • You will have an option to preview how the logo looks before uploading.
