HELP! Host to create a meeting but not attend

Tash2022

Hi all,

 

I was previously able to create a meeting in Zoom where anyone could join without the host attending or letting them in. Now when I create a meeting I need to login so other participants can join. Is there an easy way to set a meeting where I don't have to join as the host? 

 

Thanks,

Tash.

Hi @Tash2022

 

Please can you check the following setting to see if it's enabled?

 

  • Sign in to the Zoom web portal.
  • In the navigation menu, click Settings.
  • In the Meeting tab, verify that Join before host is enabled.
