Hi all. I wanted to ask if it is possible to change our Zoom Business account settings so that we don't have to be a host in order to see people in the waiting room and admit them into the meeting? We are using a meeting lounge every day and nobody is the host by default. We want to remove the bottleneck that is having to claim the host role every single time, and we want everyone with the link to automatically join the meeting without needing permission in the waiting room.
Unfortunately, there is no way to change the Waiting Room in that way. The Waiting Room can only be controlled by the host of the meeting.
That being said, you could edit that scheduled meeting and disable the Waiting Room, so the meeting no longer has that issue. This article has some info about how to schedule a meeting so that it can run smoothly without the need of a host to be present: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/8780304262157-Starting-a-meeting-without-the-host-present
Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.
It seems that we've already enabled bypassing the host/co-host to join the meeting, but that does not mean we still cannot disable the waiting room because of the new security guidelines, is that right?
