How can I set it so that only the meeting organiser can start a Teams meeting?

Copper Contributor

I keep getting notifications 15 mins before our Teams meeting that someone has started the meeting.

They see that no one is in the meeting and leave. Someone else sees the notification that the meeting has started and joins, and sees no one is there and leaves. This keeps happening. 

How can I set the meeting so that only the meeting organiser can start the meeting.

Basically I just want to prevent users getting the notification that the meeting has started unless it is from the meeting organiser.

You can consider below:

Disable 'Meeting started notification' under Teams setting

 

Select 'Only me and co-organizers' under Teams 'Meeting Options' > 'Who can bypass the lobby?' when sending out the invitation, aims to let attendees wait at lobby before the organizer start the Teams meeting
