Mute all and disable mute

Working in Education with Students and Staff, it would be great for the host to have the ability to completely disable the mics of the participants so they are not able to unmute themselves.

At the moment a host can mute all however the participants can unmute themselves. This is not ideal in an education environment.

    I totally agree. It is important in our community council meetings as well, because people join in the meeting who are unmuted, and I have to scroll through up to 100 attendees to locate the folks who are unmuted, causing huge disruption to the entire meeting.

    Many people who join our meetings are not all that familiar with video meetings. They don't see the chat, and they don't know that they can mute themselves. They don't know where the mute button is, for example.

    Great suggestion! Our school use, every day, 30 simultaneous sessions, divide in classrooms on Webex Meeting, for students between 4 and 17 years-old! Sometimes, open conference audio is chaotic!!! For us, this is urgent!!

    This feature would also be great to have in the Webex Teams Client!

    I added a suggestion to have an umuted tab near the particpants list. That way you can easily see who is unmuted and you can mute them if the background noise is distracting.

    Great suggestion! I would love to be able to mute all in a Webex meeting without them having the ability to unmute. Sometimes we have a webinar with as little as 5 clients. We still have to launch a Webex event to have an option to keep all attendees muted without the ability to unmute themselves. Costs us and not to mention our clients time and efficiency. We already know them and don't want them to have to register. This disable unmute for all would be very useful. At the moment we can do everything with a standard Webex meeting needed save for the disable unmute for all option.
