Update to Meeting creation and expiration policies

Reference ID: MC252588

MC252588 – Microsoft has made changes to how Teams meetings and join links are accessible for meeting organizers who have had their scheduling capabilities revoked. Today, Teams meeting URLs can be accessed before, during, and after the scheduled meeting time, even if the scheduling permission for the meeting organizer has been revoked after the meeting was created. To implement this change, Microsoft has adjusted the behavior of some settings in csTeamsMeetingPolicy to give additional control to the Tenant Admins.

Microsoft apologizes for not communicating this change sooner. Microsoft is working to ensure they communicate changes prior to them being available, in the future.

Key points:

How this will affect your organization

Tenant admins can now control and define the expiration of meetings created and scheduled by their users. This change does not impact any scheduled meetings for organizers who continue to have the ability to schedule Teams meetings (as defined by Meeting Policy).

What you need to do to prepare

You may consider reviewing your policies to determine if you would like to make any changes.
