Microsoft Teams is enabled with a new feature that will allow meetings to automatically end if they’re identified as stale. If a user is the sole participant in a meeting 10 minutes after the scheduled meeting end time has passed, then a dialog will appear in the call prompting them to end the call or dismiss the notification. If no action is taken on the dialog within 3 minutes, the meeting will automatically end.
If there is more than 1 user on the call and/or the scheduled meeting end time has not passed yet, then the feature will not trigger.
If the user dismisses the notification, they will not see it again for the same meeting, and it will not be at risk to automatically end anymore.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 96710.
If a user is the sole participant in a meeting that has been identified as stale, the user will see a dialog prompting to end the call or dismiss the notification. If no action is taken, the meeting will automatically end.
When this will happen
We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed.
How this will affect your organization
Users may see this feature in meetings and be removed from meetings that automatically end.
