Canvas Conference  - Invite All Course  Members

Is there a way to change the default setting on Canvas Conferences so that it doesn't invite all course members automatically? Students who run BBB meetings tend to invite everyone without realising,  this sends a notification to all staff and students and is  particularly problematic on courses with large student numbers.  It does not seem to be  possible for students to opt out of receiving these notifications in the notification settings  without opting out of others that they may want (group / collaboration etc). We don't want to stop students from creating their own meetings but on some modules we are having to hide Conferences menu item  in order to manage this problem. If there was a way to reverse the default setting so that nobody was invited by default this may be preferable.
