Microsoft Teams will offer a new option for administrators to moderate comments. A function aimed at preventing poor conduct among work teams and virtual classrooms.
While it may be a contentious change for some users, it follows the same line as Microsoft Teams has before, with many moderation choices. Microsoft Teams will allow inappropriate comments to be removed.
This new function is primarily meant for Microsoft Teams for Education, and it’s going to be accessible by the end of September.
This is, of course, a choice that may be customized in conjunction with other Teams settings to change the dynamics of chats and meetings. Recall that, among other things, Teams already has a number of moderation capabilities such as mutes participants during a meeting, removes them from the video call, and removes video streaming capability.
In this manner, teachers have a number of resources at their disposal to assist them in keeping their pupils’ attention on the topic of study. It also aids in preventing bullying. One thing to bear in mind is that although it was created for an educational purpose, it may be applied to everyone.
It may also be used in business teams or other situations, both from the web version of Microsoft Teams and the desktop program. This could cause problems and misunderstandings in a work environment since the administrator will be free to erase conversations within the chat.
Some people may not agree with the moderation criteria, or more messages than expected might be removed, leaving holes in the chat history that we can’t account for. As a result, it’s conceivable that Microsoft will include some dynamic that leaves a trace in the chat noting that material was deleted, as happens on Twitter when the material is removed via moderation.
