We are using Teams for Education, and are scheduling Assembly meetings. The problem is that - previously scheduled and completed meetings still show as active, and are confusing people. In particular, once somebody inadvertently restarts one of them, they appear as the latest thing on the Posts, and this confuses more people into joining them.

Is there any way of either removing the notification of a scheduled meeting from the Posts thread, or even stopping people from restarting meetings which have finished? I've removed the meeting from my calendar (as the organiser), but it is still showing for people in Teams.

Hi @Chrismwparsons

AFAIK, you can only delete that post notification if you cancel the the channel meeting, which unfortunately sends out an email to all attendees. Probably not a good idea.

The real solution of this is to lock the meeting after the meeting. I have raised a uservoice for you here referring to this thread

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40276684-end-meeting-means-end...

Would recommend you vote and get others to vote to push up the agenda. I really want to see this in Teams and there is no uservoice which really covers this effectively

Best, Chris
Thank you very much indeed Chris - that sounds about the extent of what I thought, but your Uservoice request is absolutely spot-on, and I will see how I can push it.
Thanks again,

Chris

When they fast-tracked this https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18715552-allow-organizer-to-en... you'd expect it to really end the meeting (including chat, links). I can't believe they overlooked that with all comments related to the issue. I am adding a third vote Christopher! ;)
