Cancel Meeting within a Series
When running scrum, often times single occurrences of a recurring meeting need to be cancelled. For example, on days where we have demo or sprint planning we usually cancel our daily standup. It would be great if we could do this with meetings that are scheduled using Microsoft Teams
As others have stated you can go to the teams Calendar and cancel the one instance or the series, but I have not found how to move the time or date of one instance or the series.
This should be added or made more clear if it exists.
Solution: Modify the meeting instance from the Meetings view from within Teams. Navigate to the meeting instance (limited to a couple weeks out, fix requested in other posts), select the meeting, click on Edit, select instance, then cancel meeting instance. Meeting modifications performed by selecting the meeting from within the Team/Channel are applied to the whole series.
I should be able to cancel a meeting in a series from either the Outlook or Teams client. As someone else said, it is my meeting, after all.
With Holidays such as Christmas and New Years coming up, we really need this now, because recurring meetings that go all year will be hard to cancel for the holiday dates. Looking forward to a richer Teams experience! Thanks, Jason

Would love to see this feature. The ability to cancel with a single click similar to Skype meeting would be great. Current situation in my Teams channel is that the Channel is the owner of the meeting and I would like to be able to cancel/edit on the fly as it is in fact MY meeting. Thanks.
this does work once you understand what you need to do. but it would be much better to put the option in the meeting somehow.

When you Cancel Meeting, you can choose Series or Occurrence. It'd be better if it Teams recognized that the meeting is one of a series and presented both buttons at the same time.

This feature does exist, but in a confusing way. You need to go into office.com and find the Office 365 Group Calendar. From there you can modify meetings sent from the Teams App.
Microsoft Teams should make the Calendar management process much clearer.
