As a meeting host, you can move a participant into the lobby, and admit them back into the meeting when ready. When you need to talk to some of the meeting participants privately, you can temporarily excuse the others from meeting.
Move a Participant to the Lobby
You can move any attendee to the lobby, except for the presenter. The person with the presenter role cannot be moved to the lobby, even if not currently sharing.
You can move any number of your meeting participants to the lobby. The total number of participants in the meeting and those in the lobby cannot exceed the capacity of your meeting plan. For example, for plans that allow 1,000 people, you can have 100 people in the lobby and 900 people in the meeting or 500 people in the lobby and 500 people in the meeting, and so on.
From the meeting controls, select Participants to open the Participants panel.
Right-click the participant name and then click Move to Lobby.
You'll see a notification in the Participants panel that these attendees are in the lobby.
Admitting Participants from the Lobby into the Meeting
When you're ready to let people back in from the lobby, click the notification, and choose who to admit.
