Hi

is there any way meet now option in private channel be disabled for members and only owner can use it to start meeting. As i have seen students and some parents are using it for personal talk after i end the meeting

Hi @vinsri76

AFAIK, it is only on or off. If the parents are guests in the team you could look to disable the meet now capability for guests in the Guest Access Settings under org-wide settings which would stop this, and if they were full members of the team you can disable it by a meeting policy, however there isn't a way currently to only allow an owner to start a meet now

So I have raised this for you as a uservoice

Please vote in order to push it up the agenda

Hope that answers your question
