Meeting organizers can adjust the Lobby settings for Meetings in Teams.
The Lobby is a waiting room where certain participants are held before they are allowed to join a meeting in progress.
The default setting is that the Lobby is bypassed, so anyone with a meeting invitation can join.
There are three different ways to get to Meeting options for a scheduled meeting.
- In Teams, go to Calendar , select a meeting, and then Meeting options.
- Adjust the setting for "Who can bypass the lobby"
- In a meeting invitation, select Meeting options.
