Zoom Waiting Room Feature

As of April 2nd, the Waiting Room feature in our account will be automatically turned on by default to enhance the control that you have over your virtual classes. Going forward, you must admit your students to the virtual classroom.

How do I admit participants into my class?
It’s simple. As the host, once you’ve started the meeting, you’ll begin to see the number of participants in your waiting room within the Manage Participants icon. Next, select Manage Participants to view the full list. Then, you’ll have the option to admit participants individually by selecting the blue Admit button next to their name or all at once with the Admit All option on the top right-hand side of your screen. 

How to Manage Your Waiting Room
Watch this 2-minute video breaking down how to manage participants. What’s more, read this blog post to learn how to secure your virtual classroom.
