Microsoft Teams: New meeting option to control permissions for admitting participants from lobby

Microsoft Teams: New meeting option to control permissions for admitting participants from lobby

Microsoft Teams has introduced a new meeting option that allows organizers to control who can admit participants from the lobby. This feature provides two choices - only organizers and co-organizers can admit from the lobby or include presenters as well. Currently, meeting participants who are not responsible for meeting management can admit people from the lobby, leading to a security gap that organizers can't control. This new update addresses this gap and provides a meeting option for meeting organizers to be in control of who can admit people from the lobby. The new feature will roll out in July 2024, and it is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 392836. No specific action is required for implementation. Users will have access to features such as view lobby in the People tab during the meeting, and receive notifications related to lobby activity, among others.

If you're a Microsoft Teams user, this new update will provide more security to your meetings, giving you more control over who can admit participants from the lobby. You don't need to take any specific action to prepare for this update, and it is expected to roll out globally from early July 2024.
