I was demoing Microsoft Teams Meeting Rooms Proximity Join yesterday and came across a couple of nuanced behaviours that effect the ability to utilise this feature.
The first issue was that even with bluetooth beaconing enabled, the Teams client wouldn’t find the room when pre-joining the Teams meeting.
The problem was that post enabling the bluetooth beaconing feature you should restart the MTR device as just enabling it in the back end admin settings is not enough.
The second issue that prevented proximity join derives from organiser presence. If you are in a presence state of Do Not Disturb, this prevents proximity join from working. The fix here of course, is to reset, or change your presence state to another setting and then proximity join will work.
Very short post, but these are simple fixes that at the start of a meeting can make you panic.
