Exiting and Ending a Meeting

With the Windows-based meeting client, after your meeting is over you can:

  • Exit a meeting without ending it so that meeting participants can continue to review slides or collaborate on their own. This option allows you to exit the meeting while leaving the meeting session open.

  • Exit a meeting and end the session. This option ends the session for you and all other meeting participants.

Note: If you are recording the meeting, ensure that you stop the recording and save it before you exit the meeting, or the recording will not be saved. For more information about recording a meeting, see Recording a Meeting.

  • From the menu bar, click Exit.

To exit and end a meeting
