Disable "share-invite" link in Microsoft Teams

Hello everybody,

as a school we use Microsoft Teams as platform to run remote-teaching. Recently an issue has occured, which makes work a little bit uncomfortable. During scheduled meetings some younger students invite external attendees in order to kid the teacher or disturb the class. Apparently these students use the invitation link, that can be copied during the meeting showing the attendance-list via the "share-invite" button.
Although anonymous meeting attendance and guest-access are disabeld via admin center and external attendees have to wait in the lobby until they are apporved by the meeting's organizer, we would prefer to simply disable the invitation link in order to prevent such annoying disruption.

Therefore my question is wether there is any option to disable the "share invite" Button during a meeting at least for the attendees?

@TimHlger-1804,

You could set “Who can bypass the lobby” as “People I invite” in Meeting options as below:

People I invite means that meeting organizers can have greater control over their meetings by enabling a new lobby setting where only Calendar meeting invited users will be able to join directly.

You could modify this option when scheduling Teams meeting or during a Teams meeting.

Thank you very much for your response. This option is not available in our education-tenant as you see here:

Do I have to activate the option via PowerShell or is there any setting inside the Admin Center? Still we would appreciate an additional option to disable the "share-invite" link.

@TimHlger-1804,
Currently, it seems no such settings in PowerShell and admin center.
As I know, this feature should begin rolling out to public preview March 25 and complete by mid-April. So, you may need to wait a little longer.

Thank you again! This seems to solve our issue. We're looking forward to the roll out of this new setting.
