Floating" Waiting to Admit" panel dissappears after Co-Host is assinged


I just upgraded to the lasted zoom and I think I found a problem. 

Running as Host for the meeting, There is  floating "waiting room tab" that appears on top of the gallery view section when people are in the waiting room ready to be admitted to the meeting.  This works fine until you make someone Co-Host.  After which, This notification panel stops appearing!  You can only see ones to admit on the Participants Panel and that only works if you have it open.   

Is this a glitch or is there a setting switch for this????.

Hello @bkinney4140,
My name is Brandon. Thanks for joining the Zoom Community! This is by design, if you are in full screen in your meeting then the waiting room pop-up will show up like that. See the screenshot below.

If you escape out of full screen and use the participant button you and the co-host can work together to admit the participants into the meeting. 


I hope that this helps.

Hey Brandon, thanks for your reply.!


Yes,  that pop up (or pop down) stopped working when I made the first attendee, co-host. 

That is by design??

You have to open the Attendee Tab to see the new people in the waiting room '??


Thanks and let me know.
