Microsoft Teams is updating Copilot meeting controls, with enforceable policies for using Copilot with transcription post-meeting. Changes include new wording and descriptions for settings in the Teams admin center and meeting options. Rollout begins late April 2024, with completion by early May 2024. Admins should update policies and inform users.
Updated April 12, 2024: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Coming soon: We are excited to announce that the Microsoft Teams meeting policies for Copilot will be enforceable. You will be able to require Copilot to be used with a standard transcript that is retained after the meeting ends. Before the rollout, meeting organizers could override any Copilot meeting policies. We have also refreshed the Copilot controls in the Teams admin center (TAC) and the meeting options with new wording and descriptions that help clarify what each setting does for you and your users. The new meeting option values are designed to separate Copilot from transcription, making it easier for meeting organizers to understand exactly how Copilot works during and after a meeting.
[When this will happen:]

General Availability (Worldwide): We will begin rolling out late April 2024 and expect to complete rollout by early May 2024.

2024-04-13MC How AffectBefore the rollout, the TAC Copilot setting options were:

Copilot
On with transcript
On
These options set the defaults for Copilot in meetings.
After the rollout, the TAC Copilot setting options will be:
Copilot
On only with transcription
On
If On only with transcription is selected, users with this policy assigned will only be able to organize meetings in which Copilot requires standard transcription to be turned on.



Before the rollout, the Copilot meeting options were:

Copilot
Without transcription
With transcription
After the rollout, the Copilot meeting options will be:
Allow Copilot
Only during the meeting
During and after the meeting
The new meeting options are functionally the same as before the rollout. Learn more at Use Copilot without recording a Teams meeting - Microsoft Support.



How these controls work together
If you set Copilot to On only with transcription, then the Copilot meeting option will be locked to During and after the meeting for meeting organizers. For Copilot to be used, transcription must be activated by a meeting participant with permission to transcribe.

If you set Copilot to On, then the Copilot meeting option will be Only during the meeting by default. Meeting organizers can change the meeting option value to During and after the meeting to require transcription to be turned on for Copilot.
