Turn on or off entry and exit announcements for meetings
When you are setting up Audio Conferencing in Office 365, you will get an audio conferencing bridge. A conferencing bridge can contain one or more phone numbers that people will use to call in to a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams meeting.
The conferencing bridge answers a call for a user who is dialing in to a meeting using a phone. The conferencing bridge answers the caller with voice prompts from a conferencing auto attendant, and then, depending on your settings, can play notifications, ask callers to record their name, and set up the PIN security. A PIN is given to a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams meeting organizer, and it allows them to start a meeting if they can't start the meeting using a Skype for Business or Microsoft Teams app. You can, however, set it so that a PIN isn't required to start a meeting.
Setting meeting join options
Sign in to Office 365 with your work or school account.
Go to the Office 365 admin center > Skype for Business.
In the Skype for Business admin center, in the left navigation, go to Audio conferencing > Microsoft bridge settings.
Under Meeting join experience, select or clear Enable meeting entry and exit notifications to be turned on. This is selected by default. If you clear it, users who have already joined the meeting won't be notified when someone enters or leaves the meeting.
Under Entry/exit announcement type, select Names or phone numbers or Tones.
Check or uncheck Ask callers to record their name before joining the meeting.
After you make your changes, click Save.
