Hi. For the Zoom account for my synagogue, Waiting Rooms are disabled and Allow Participants to Join Before Host is enabled. But it doesn't work. Participants who attempt to log in before the host still get the "Please Wait for the Host to Start this Meeting." Some setting must have changed but I can't figure out what. Any idea why? Thank you.
Rupert, I have allow participants to join any time, and still it takes them all to the waiting room. It seems there is a new security requirement... (see below). I need to have all company users to get into the meeting with out waiting room or passcode. Please help
I have the same issue. I also have multiple Zoom Accounts. All paid. 3 work correctly based on the setting of "Allow users to join before host" but the 4th one always displays "Waiting for host to join". I have validated the meeting settings and also the personal meeting room and from what I can see, they are correctly set up.
You're not alone. I manage multiple paid accounts, and I see this problem, but only with one of them. I've set the "Allow to join before host" at both the meeting and account levels, but with the problem account, users still see the "Waiting for host to start", even though the meeting should be available. With that account, we just expect hosts to login and start, but they shouldn't have to.
Like the commenter a few months back, they're all paid accounts, and the settings look okay to me. It's not clear why the one account doesn't work.
Hey everyone, I have finally made it work on mine.
Zoom required to have a security option in PRO accounts.
Security option to choose is:
"Only authenticated meeting participants and webinar attendees can join meetings and webinars", I've also added meeting name and company.
Then, ENABLE waiting room and select all options that make users bypass waiting room.
"Allow participants to join anytime"
"Bypass the passcode when joining meetings from meeting list"
Hope this helps!!
