This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68758.
When this will happen:
Preview: Microsoft will begin rolling this out in mid-September and expect to complete in late September.
How this will affect your organization:
You will be able to identify, detect and troubleshoot transient network related issues that impact users’ audio/video/screen-sharing quality and experience during a meeting.
This feature will provide the following options for Teams Admins to examine audio/video/content-sharing and network related issues in real-time. The real-time metrics are updated every 30 seconds. This feature can be accessed when a meeting is in progress via the Teams Admin Console.
Audio: Outbound and inbound audio statistics
Video: Outbound video statistics
Content Sharing: Outbound and Inbound content sharing statistics.
There are two ways to access this feature to monitor the user’s telemetry;
- Search for the person’s name in the recent meeting category, and click on the Meeting ID of the ‘in-progress’ meeting.
- Click on the meeting’s participants list, select the participant’s name.
What you need to do to prepare:
You may want to notify your tenant’s admin about this new capability and update your support documentation accordingly.
