  • All other eligible Workspace users can turn attendance tracking and live stream reports on and off from within a meeting or from the Google Calendar event. 
    • If you turn these features off in recurring meetings or meetings that use the same meeting code, the setting will be saved for the next scheduled meeting  If you turn these features off in a one-time, nicknamed, or instant meeting, the feature will return to on, after the meeting ends.
