Enabling Teams Meeting report download capability

Meetings in Teams is one of the most popular functionality that being used by millions across the world. The ability to download reports for meeting attendance would be very useful for meeting organizers to view the attendance of the meeting/s. In the recent Teams update, Microsoft added this functionality to Teams, but it is disabled by default, and you will not be able to use it out-of-the-box unless you enable it (for everyone or a specific target group). This post will guide you to get this done.
