There is currently no way to check who removed you from Microsoft Teams meetings or calls. In other words, there is no way to tell which participant expelled other participants.
However, the logical conclusion is that it must have been one of the organizers or presenters. These are the only two roles that can remove other people from Teams meetings. Keep in mind that attendees do not have the right to remove other participants.
Unfortunately, Microsoft Teams does not keep any logs of the actions that meeting participants performed. When you’re removed, you only get this alert: “Someone just removed you from the meeting. You can try to rejoin“.
Attendees Can’t Remove Other Participants
This problem is even more annoying for teachers. So, if you’re using Teams to teach online classes, make sure to set your students as attendees. This role will prevent them from kicking their colleagues out.
As you can see, assigning the appropriate MS Teams roles is crucial if you want to ensure the meetings go according to plan. Select what each participant can and cannot do to prevent unexpected events.
Attendees have a very limited set of actions they can perform. On the other hand, presenters can do just about anything during meetings.
Users Asked MS to Add Activity Logs to Teams
With that being said, many MS Teams users, especially teachers, are waiting for Microsoft to add a new feature that records students’ activity logs. In this manner, they’ll be able to track down the culprits.
As a quick reminder, prior to April 2020, attendees were allowed to remove and mute other participants. Microsoft then changed the permissions for this role so as to block attendees from removing other participants.
Many users think it’s downright ridiculous that meeting organizers can’t see who removed whom. If you agree, you can upvote this request on the Microsoft Teams UserVoice.
