Summary:
Microsoft Teams is introducing a new meeting option that allows organizers to disable copying and sharing features on meeting chat messages for participants to reduce the risk of data leak. Admins can control whether users can see or use this feature in the Meeting Options page and set the default value for this meeting option in Meeting Templates that they create. The rollout will begin mid-December 2023 and is expected to complete by late April 2024. Users with a Teams Premium license will have access to this feature by default. Admins may want to provide end user education in advance for this feature.

"Turn off copying or forwarding of meeting chat" is a new meeting option that gives the meeting organizer the option to disable copying and sharing features on meeting chat messages for participants to reduce the risk of data leak. Once this restriction is enabled, meeting chat participants will not be able to copy chat messages using menu options or keyboard shortcuts, or forward or share messages to Outlook. There is also a new Meeting Policy setting in Teams admin center for admin to control whether users can see or use this feature in the Meeting Options page. Admins can also set the default value for this meeting option in Meeting Templates that they create. This meeting capability can also be configured within a sensitivity label policy: Configure Teams meetings with protection for highly sensitive data.
