Admit Zoom Attendees from a Waiting Room
When the Waiting Room feature is enabled, people trying to join the meeting are automatically put into a waiting room. They will see a notice saying to wait for the meeting host to let them in. (Individuals who are only connected by phone will hear a message saying the host has put them on hold.)
This article applies to: Zoom
To admit these individuals to the meeting, the meeting host needs to:
- Click Manage Participants in the Zoom application.
- In the Participants pane, either click Admit for individual attendees, or Admit All to let in everyone who's waiting.
Note: If the host doesn’t have the participant panel open, when when someone enters the waiting room, the Manage Participants icon will flash and a pop-up window will provide an option to admit them.
