Why if the waiting room is disabled and users join prior to the Zoom Room, does Zoom not assign the Room as the Host? I know it says "joins before meeting host and other participants" but this seems problematic, in that there are situations where a host is never assigned thus limiting full functionality. We tested this and have run into situations, with clients, where they did not want the waiting room, participants join before the room and the meeting is left without a host. Is this a security feature? What is the purpose of this rule?
Can I ask if you have enabled the setting to make the Zoom room the Host if it joins before the Host and other participants? See the article to check this - https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/203614149-Joining-a-meeting-before-the-host-in-a-Zoom-Room
If this setting is enabled once the Zoom room joins it will have full host controls.
