How do I lock my meeting?

Organizers can lock their meeting to prevent unexpected attendees from joining the current session.

If you have back-to-back meetings, you no longer have to worry about being disrupted by additional attendees if the session goes over the scheduled time. This comes in handy if you run your personal meeting room frequently.
