View and download meeting attendance reports in Teams

If you've organized a Teams meeting, you can download a current attendance report during the meeting as well as a final report after the meeting. The report includes the name of each person in the meeting and the time they joined and left.


  • Only meeting organizers and co-organizers can view and download attendance reports.

  • Reports are stored along with the organizer's other data, like emails and contacts. Reports are permanently deleted if they leave the organization, and no one else can access them.

  • Your admin needs to turn on this feature to make it available. See Allow engagement report for more info.

During the meeting

  1. If the participants pane isn’t open, select People  teams people icon in your meeting controls.

  2. Click More actions, then select the Download attendance list to download the current attendance info as a .CSV file that you can open in Excel.

Known issues and limitations

  • In meetings with more than 120 participants, the attendance report that's available during the meeting will only include a partial list of attendees. The post-meeting report will contain the full list.

  • The report does not include insights from deleted breakout rooms.

  • The report does not currently include view-only attendees.

  • If a channel meeting is in progress and someone starts a second meeting within the same channel conversation, an attendance report will be available only for the second meeting. You can go to the Attendance tab in the Teams calendar invite for all channel meeting attendance reports.

  • If someone waits in the lobby and doesn't get admitted to the meeting, they won't be included in the report.

  • When a participant is on hold in a meeting, their info is still included for this period of time in attendance report.
