When we have more than even 10 callers, we end up speaking over each other.

 

Is there a way in MS Teams for people to 'raise their hands' when they want to speak and we then give them a go ahead to speak.  One of the meeting members (callers) can play the role of a moderator and allow people to take turns speaking.

 

Am planning a few meetings with more than 20-30 callers and possibly over 50, and am anticipating quite a messy meeting without some moderation. 

 

Any suggestions?  Thanks

@Ashcoops Raise hand function will come to Teams, I've not seen any date yet. Until then you might have to use the chat.
