Microsoft Teams has a new feature that makes it much easier to download attendance reports for meetings. You can now download reports after a meeting concludes. Before this recent update, you had to download attendance reports before a meeting ended.
The improvement to attendance reports was spotted earlier this month on a UserVoice forum. Now, it appears to be rolling out.
Microsoft MVP Karoliina Kettukari highlights the feature's availability on Twitter.

A person asked Kettukari on Twitter if the feature was in public preview or general availability, to which Kettukari replied, "I have normal tenant so they should be in GA." If you don't see the feature yet, you should probably see it soon.
Based on the feedback in the UserVoice thread, the feature seems to need improvement. Many people point out flaws in how it reports attendance, including only counting the people to show up to the first instance of a recurring meeting. Hopefully, these are just early hiccups, and Microsoft can clean up the feature.
