When do Meetings expire?
Instant meetings: have a lifetime limited to 24 hours.
Scheduled meetings: have a lifetime of 30 days. If they are not used for more than 30 days, they expire.
If a scheduled meeting is used (people click on the invitation link), its lifetime will be extended by another 30 days every time it's used. This means that if you keep using a scheduled meeting, it will never expire. Its lifetime will always be 30 days from the day it was last used. A scheduled meeting only expires if it is "idle" for more than 30 days.
