Teams: #FightCorona – In The Meeting: Pinning participants

Sometimes we want to focus on specific views or people within a meeting. This could be for several reasons - an external camera is directing at a screen or whiteboard, or someone is the principle speaker or meeting lead. The meeting could be in a Q&A format where you have a speaker asking questions and then multiple people rotate to provide answers. It could be for training. It could be for recording purposes. Microsoft Teams is designed to automatically show the last 4 speakers in the main 2 x 2 grid. Pinning participants allows us to deviate away from that or choose who we want to have in that 2 x 2 grid
