SummaryHosts can allow Participants to join a scheduled meeting immediately or wait for them in a "Waiting Room" until admitted to join. "Waiting Room" is a feature where Participants cannot join a meeting until the Hosts admits them individually or admits all of them from the Waiting Room. Hosts can click "Admit" to let in the new Participant immediately or click "See waiting room" to open Manage Participants window. The Host can then click "Admit All" to let in all Participants from the "Waiting Room".

This feature is OFF by default. Account Administrators can enable this feature account-wide and for Users. Users can also enable this in their own Extension Settings.
