How do I manage the Waiting Room in Zoom?
Waiting Rooms are useful for virtual office hours and advising. Use the Waiting Room anytime you need to manage when participants join your hosted meeting.
The Waiting Room feature allows the host to control when a participant joins the meeting. As the meeting host, you can admit attendees one by one or hold all attendees in the waiting room and admit them all at once. You can send all participants to the waiting room when joining your meeting or only guests, participants who are not on your Zoom account or are not logged in.
Participants will see the following screen when joining a meeting with Waiting Room enabled:
