Disable the "You've added Slido as a tab" chat message?

Is there a way to disable the automatic chat message that gets added to the meeting chat when Slido is added to a Teams Meeting? For some of our larger meetings, we’ve disabled the chat function within the Teams Meeting Options (as we’re going to only use the Slido Q&A); however, it still posts this message and it’s confusing for our users.

The message is posted from ‘Slido’ and states the following:

“Hi there! You have added Slido as a tab, so every chat participant can submit a question. If you want to use Slido in your Teams Meeting, add Slido app to your meeting in Teams Calendar. Check out this quick video or our guide for more information.”

Hey @Jason Walker,

At the moment, there is no way to disable these automatic messages because they are required by Microsoft. As a workaround, you can recommend that your participants mute their chat notifications. They can mute them like this:

  1. Click on three dots in the top right corner of their Teams desktop app
  2. Select Settings
  3. Select Notifications
  4. Scroll down to Meetings and calls and click Edit
  5. Next to Meeting chat notifications, select Mute

Hope this helps!
