Bonjour, nous rencontrons des problèmes pour l'accès au "chat". Certains participants d'une formation de plusieurs jours n'ont soudainement plus accès au "chat" alors que pas de souci les premiers jours de formation.
Ils ont le message : "You can't send messages because you are not a member of the chat".
En vérifiant dans les options du meeting, il était bien indiqué "enabled" pour le chat.
J'avais aussi "added" un participant "to the meeting and shared all chat history", mais cela n'a pas fonctionné.

La seule solution rapide trouvée a été de créer un nouveau lien teams et y inviter tous les participants. Ils avaient alors tous de nouveau accès au "chat".

Est-ce parce que nous utilisons le même lien teams pour plusieurs jours avec des personnes externes à l'entreprise ?
Avez-vous une solution plus rapide ?

D'avance merci pour votre retour

D. Jacques
