Waiting in lobby

If it's a Webex team meeting, anyone who's a member of the space that's associated with the meeting can let people in. If it's a Webex scheduled meeting or a Webex Personal Room meeting, you can only let people in if you're the host. Make sure you know who's waiting in the lobby before you let them in.

People may need to wait in the lobby before joining your meeting in these cases:

  • If the people who are trying to join aren't on the calendar invite.

  • If it's a Webex scheduled meeting or Webex Personal Room meeting that's locked.

  • If it's a Webex team meeting, but the people who are trying to join aren't members of the space or don't have Webex accounts.

  • If the people who are trying to join by phone don't know their attendee ID or enter the wrong one.

    For more information about how guests can join the meeting if they don't have a Webex account, see Guest Access to Cisco Webex Meetings.
