waiting room


I want users entering the meeting to be directed to the waiting room,
And after the meeting started I want to admit everyone,
And from that moment to allow direct entry to the meeting without waiting in the waiting room for everyone who comes.

In my account setting I have enabled the waiting you can see aat the image attached.

When the meeting  starts all users are directed to tt change he meeting room, but when I open the participants window->>>more>> the "enable wiating romm" button is disabled (gray) and i cannot chang it -as you can see in the 2 image i have attached here.

>Thanks in advance

For security reasons, a meeting must have either a passcode or waiting room enabled.  
If you add a passcode to your meeting, you should be able to disable the waiting room.


Hope that helps and please make sure to mark the solution as accepted if this information is what you needed.

Thanks! Rick
