Waiting rooms: fine grained access to your meeting

Waiting rooms are there as a way to refine access to your meeting. Once you create a meeting you can enable Waiting Room for it at Meeting options then Enable waiting room at https://cern.zoom.us.

That means that when attendees are joining the meeting, they will be in a waiting room and you need to grant them access, one by one or wait and grant access in a bunch.

You could also select who will need to pass by a waiting room either:

  • all participants or
  • just guests.

Finally at your profile, In Meeting(advanced) -> Waiting room you can customize description and logo for your waiting rooms.

Please see more details in Zoom article: Waiting Room.
