Teams Meeting organizer can force mute audio for attendees
Give meeting organizers the ability to force mute audio for all attendees in the meeting options page. Attendees should not be able to un-mute their audio with this option set.
We have launched the ability for a presenter to ‘hard mute’ attendees. This feature gives meeting organizers the ability to mute one to many meeting participants while removing the muted participants’ ability to unmute themselves.

Get this done ASAP.
We started using MS Teams to deliver live online classes with our students. But we are having difficulties as the students can:
1. unmute themselves and others;
2. Students are able to invite others to join the meeting (class);
3. The session doesn't end even if the moderator wants to close, until all participants go out of the session themselves
How to solve those three problems?
