Unique Meeting IDs for a Recurring Meeting
When you setup a recurring meeting in outlook and make it a Teams Meeting. Each meeting should have a different Meeting ID and they don't now.
So the workaround is making a seperate meeting every time? That kind of (really) defeats the purpose of a recurring meeting.
In my case the only recurring participant in my recurring meeting is myself, the rest are changing attendees. So removing them manually after every meeting is not possible, because MS Teams needs at least 2 participants.
Hopefully Microsoft will step up and make it an option to have unique Meeting IDs for recurring meetings. I really get the potential of having the same, but as many people have said already, there is a definite need for this functionality.
Ben - thank you for the find in chat workaround! I was going to the participant list during the meeting and I was unable to delete them. But that chat workaround works. Thank you!

Workarounds are cumbersome:
- after inviting a one-time attendee to a reoccurring meeting, delete reoccurring meeting series, and replace with a new one (with a new meeting link)
- find the meeting in your chat history and remove the one-time attendee to the reoccurring meeting
This is important if you have guest speakers or others that are only invited to an occurrence and not the series. Otherwise that one time they joined gives them access to all the future chat as it still sees them part of that Meeting ID. Unless you are very diligent and sift through membership after each meeting.
