Support for Static Conference ID's when using Microsoft Teams
The ability to have a static conference ID through Teams Audio Conferencing was supported when we migrated to Office 365 last year, however, this feature is no longer supported by Microsoft (reasoning below per MSFT Unified Support). Can you please work on the issue with joining meetings so we can have this feature back?
“Microsoft Audio Conference IDs will be dynamic and unique for every instance of a meeting created. Converting Dynamic to Static conference ID is not supported. Previously with Skype for Business online we use to have Static Conference ID , however we received many instances that user are joining previous meeting even if they are not a part of Meeting, because Owner of the Meeting has not ended it.”
"instances that user are joining previous meeting even if they are not a part of Meeting, because Owner of the Meeting has not ended it.”
can be dealt by having
first setting meeting password and changing and communicating required users about change in password.
second way is that let moderator have ability to choose who can enter the meeting until then they will be on the waiting room.
this is just high level direction, I can explain more in detail about my thoughts.

Please bring the static ID back. Without this feature many will continue to flock to Zoom or BlueJeans. Teams would be so much more useful with this feature as an option. This is the only thing keeping my firm from using Teams as the sole audio/video collaboration solution.

Most of us have a speed dial on our phone to dial in with the static conference ID. It will be great if we can have this capability with Teams.

It's very convenient to use static ID's like other conference vendors, It would also be nice to have custom static id's
