A. Full list here of all devices Devices for Teams – Microsoft Teams | Microsoft Docs
Q. Will we see an audio test on the Teams Rooms, so it can measure the acoustic in the Room?
A. I don’t think you will…but i wouldn’t be surprised to see things become easier…. the biamp guys after Harald will speak a little about that.
Q. If you want something cool for your home office, you can search YouTube for how to make audio panels out of old towels for your wall….
A. Jimmy, you should have told me that before I bought all the acoustic panels for my home office 😉
Q. Anyone have a vendor/manufacturer recommendation for sound panels in my home office? Bonus if I can buy it off Amazon.
A. I am pretty happy with mine. https://recordstands.com/acoust-hex-panels/ Peel and stick. Pick your colors and quantities.

Q. We are currently dismantling our Skype for Business Hybrid environment, and following method 2 mentioned here: To set the onpremlineuri, we use set-csuser for user objects. we noticed that for the set-csmeetingroom cmdlet, the onpremlinuri parameter is missing. The article also does not discuss MTR account specific things.
A. If you are going Teams-native with MTR, you do not need to run set-csmeetingroom. That is a Skype-only command.
Q. We would like to create a CQD PowerBI dashboard specifically for MTR resource accounts. What dimensions should we ideally use for the dashboard? how do other companies do it? Do we need to use CSVs to import the resource accounts data on a monthly base?
A. As far as a CQD for MTR’s, I think if you look into premium service, you will see some value there. I believe they have plans for advanced reporting features like this…. the good news is you can try it for free and see if there is value there https://rooms.microsoft.com
A2. We just spun up a POC with Vyopta for Teams CQD—so far good
