Prevent users from joining meeting after it has ended
After a meeting has ended, we'd like the ability for hosts to "delete" or "lock" their meetings so participants cannot join the meeting again once it has ended.
GIS Team commented
Please make this available the soonest possible time.
Please enable this feature that once a meeting ends then it automatically blocks people from rejoining
The link provided in outlook should be disabled as well once the meeting has ended or have been cancelled to prevent users from joining again.

As a middle school teacher ESE teacher who is using Teams it is a miracle that in 6months I have gotten 75% of my inclusion & resource 12-14 yr old students from not knowing how to use email last February to being able to get on Teams to the correct channel and Join.
But this past TUESDAY was a nightmare.
As my entire district is stuck in between **** and a hard place of the pandemic- remote learning on this scale does not really allow for substitutes. I had a cold (yes just a cold) but was on that one horrible day of a cold where I just needed rest and decided to take a sick day and cancel my meetings in Teams - my students (not the greatest of readers and most are ESOL) joined every single meeting that I had posted in the last 2 weeks. As one kid was sitting in the lobby of one, 3 were sitting in the lobby of the other. Then all the other kids were posting away trying tell me to let them in. I spent my “sick day” trying to help, but not getting sucked back in to just ending up holding class in my bathrobe sounding like death’s door.
My admin finally said to shut off all my devices and go to bed. There was nothing we could do. Really?
This is not only a problem for students on a day like this, but I have 11yr sixth graders who forget that in middle school classes and teachers change on a block schedule- so every morning that I have my 7th grader Team, I see that 3-4 lost 6th graders are waiting in the lobby of yesterday’s class.
Again kids aren’t the greatest at reading & following directions- they learning those life lessons at this age, but specifically my students have very low reading levels.
I really feel like this is a simple fix to close off and lock an ended/cancelled meeting and my former life as an Office Manager cannot wrap my head around why a meeting link that has ended, is not set to recurring or has been cancelled needs to still be JOINABLE?!
Our district was forced to used Teams (I actually really like it!) after an in the news meltdown with another LMS, but then my school just switched to new devices that do not allow Zoom. I have been a TEAMs cheerleader since last March, but on this scale never had this many students trying to rejoin meetings over and over again. The teachers that can’t use Zoom anymore are FURIOUS with this flaw in Teams. I cannot defend it.
Please fix this issue.

Please add this feature. It would be very helpful for school districts.

This is a must for education
If you go back after you end the meeting.
Then click the ... in the right hand area of that meeting info in the general tab.
That prevents students from joining that ended meeting
yes - please get rid of the "join" button after a meeting end time has passed. This should be automatic!!! Causing many issue.
In particular I want the chat to not be available unless the meeting is in session
Oh my we need this very bad. Did a team meeting with a 3rd party and now they are forever in the chat after the meeting has ended. We absolutely do not want a 3rd parting being in a meeting/chat after it has ended.
This is problematic for students to be able to come back into a meeting with no supervision. Please fix this where when you end the meeting it really ends the meeting.
un availability of this option is frustrating us. Students are joining in different meetings from calendar instead of joining in the actual meeting. It is showing as two or three meetings at a time creating confusion about what the actual meeting is.
In fact, make the meeting not even available until close to the start time. If that's not possible then please accelerate the work on the capability to enable the waiting room for all by default.
This is such an important issue for youth organisation where there is a potential where people can start meeting up once say the adults have left.. this could lead to whole host of issues...

Please make the meeting link inactive once the meeting is over. This will avoid a lot of confusion, where people enter into a wrong classroom and wait.
As we head into August, I am shocked Microsoft has not adjusted this feature in Teams. Please allow for Teams meetings to prevent rejoining after the meeting time.
I try to take down the links, but this could still be a liability issue for teachers.

Please make this feature available on urgent...!
This is an important feature to have, I agree it is causing users confusion amongst staff
This is critical, the old meetings are causing confusion and disorganization. Additionally, we should be able to delete the post as well. Our channels are becoming cluttered with empty "Scheduled a Meeting" and "Meeting ended" posts that make it harder to see relevant information.
