Quick launch summary
Admins can now remove all users and end selected meetings from the security investigation tool using the new “end meeting for all” action. You can use this feature to:
- End multiple meetings within your organization,
- Search for and end old meetings that are being used inappropriately,
- Set up a rule to end meetings based on certain user actions. For example: admins can create a rule to automatically end a meeting where a user submits an abuse report
Important note: While Meeting hosts across all Google Workspace editions can end a meeting while inside a meeting, this feature allows Google Workspace Enterprise Plus, Education Standard, and Education Plus admins to end meetings from the security investigation tool.
Once the “end meeting for all” action is selected, the meeting will end for all users, including those in breakout rooms. Further, this will ensure that users cannot attend future instances of that meeting without the host being present. Users who are not on the Calendar invite for the meeting will have to knock to re-enter the meeting. Those users on the Calendar invite or invited in-meeting by the host will not have to knock.
Additionally, when an Admin ends a meeting, it will also turn off quick access for future instances of that meeting ID, however meeting hosts are able to turn the Quick access setting back on.
