End the meeting for everyone

Meeting organisers now have the option of ending meetings for all participants. If you are running a webinar, for example, this is a great way to make sure your attendees leave your meeting promptly.

To end an in-progress meeting, go to your meeting controls and select More options More options icon > End meeting. You’ll be asked to confirm. When you do, the meeting will end for everyone right away.

Let attendees who dial in bypass the meeting lobby

Allow callers to instantly join your next Teams meeting without having to wait in the lobby. That way you won’t have to stop in the middle of a meeting to let attendees in.

To access this setting, select Meeting options and switch the toggle to Yes for Always let callers bypass the lobby?
