Cohost or moderate a session
The Waiting Room
The waiting room feature in Zoom is a great feature to use to help your meetings start on time and manage who is entering the meeting. The waiting room allows you to admit a single attendee or all attendees. Having your waiting room open before your meeting start time allows attendees to log-in and wait until you are ready to start your session without everyone seeing what you are doing.
To help ensure that participants are not forgotten in the waiting room, the cohost should be responsible for monitoring and admitting people from the waiting room and turn-on the chime sound that announces that someone is waiting to be admitted.
