How to Formally End a Meeting in Teams?

How do I formally end a meeting in Teams?  As an Organizer, when I leave a meeting, other participants can continue to meet -- talking, screen sharing, etc.  I cannot find any settings or options that allow me to end the meeting and shut it down for all participants.

There used to be an "End Meeting" option in Skype for Business, but where is it in Teams?  This is a rather important feature.

Hello Nick Semon,


By testing and searching, there seems no relevant feature to totally end the meeting and avoid participants keeping sharing and chatting in meeting after organizer left.


I suggest you can submit a feedback regarding this symptom by Teams UserVoice, and share your advises there. Your time and efforts are greatly appreciated.


Best Regards,
