What you need to know

  • Microsoft Teams will soon let you download an attendance report after a meeting is over.
  • The feature will roll out over the next few weeks.
  • You will also be able to get attendance reports for webinars.

Keeping track of who attends meetings within Microsoft Teams isn't as easy as it should be. That's about to change, however, as Microsoft is rolling out the option to download an attendance report after a meeting or webinar has ended. This is a highly requested feature that's received almost 20,000 votes on a UserVoice thread (via MSPowerUser).

Before the update that's rolling out, you had to download your meeting report before the meeting was over. That limitation hampered people's ability to track meeting attendance, but it shouldn't be an issue going forward.

The UserVoice post reads:

View or export a list of users who attended a meeting

Currently, there is no method of viewing a list of meeting attendees after a meeting has ended.Meeting organizers should be able to view or export a list of attendees, including enter and exit times, duration, etc.

A Teams engineer responded by saying:

Thank you for your continued feedback! We are in the process of rolling about the ability to download the Attendance Report after the meeting has ended. This feature will be rolling out over the coming weeks, and we will update here once completed.

The same engineer also links to an item on the Microsoft 365 roadmap about the feature. According to the roadmap and the engineer, the new feature will roll out this month.
