Allow organizer to end meetings.
People should not have to manually leave meetings in order for them to end. We have had several people forget to manually leave meetings, and the channel continues to show that a meeting is in progress when in fact it has ended.
The organizer of channel meetings should be able to 'end' meetings altogether instead of simply leaving the meeting space.
In particular we are finding this to be an issue when coupled with the limited minute allocation from the "Audio Conferencing" add on license. Organizers should be able to shut down a meeting and disconnect everyone from the call, or have a configurable time to shut down the meeting. A hard stop where the meeting ends, with a warning 5 minutes and one minute before. This issue is exacerbated by the fact that Microsoft decreased the number of PTSN minutes included in the Audio Conferencing license from 900 to 60. Really disappointing.

There should be an option in the security settings, if Organizer leaves, to Terminate Meeting Immediately, or after x minutes, or never... and give the organizer a Button to End Meeting

My meeting recording is stuck in limbo due to my inability to end the meeting.
This has become a deployment show stopper for us!

Absolutely baffled that this did not already exist as a feature.
With any other meeting platform the organizer has the ability to terminate the meeting.
It would be hugely beneficial if this could happen. This is potentially a safeguarding issue where schools would be able to continue communicating.

Yes. I am also of the opinion that when the organizer leaves the meeting, an option should be given either to close the meeting or let it continue for others.

I totally support this - let's get it done!
I think it is worse than thought. I'm seeing most people not leave/end a meeting. And now 1 meeting keeps taking control for all new ones!

Please allow option for "Organizer" to be the only one with permission to end a meeting - other participants/presenters should not be given this right.
In a school environment, I could see this creating a bit of a pain. Students not leaving the meeting and the meeting carrying on without the teachers ability to end it.
Yes, this is very much not intuitive.
