I’m currently looking for a way to setup a meeting in teams, invite external users to the meeting and then have them join the meeting whilst I am not in the meeting to allow them in.

 

I have changed the meeting policy applied to the user setting up the meeting so that “Automatically admit people” is set to “Everyone” but I still get the message “someone in the meeting should let you in soon”. It’s also worth noting when I edit the meeting options “who can bypass the lobby” is set to “People in my organization”, however even changing this doesn’t make a difference.

 

Is this a bug or am I setting it up wrong?

Have you tried to join the meeting you set up with two guest accounts? It is possible that the meeting will "let you in" automatically.

 

There is a setting for bypass when you use the dial-in please take note of that too, if that is the case.

 

Have you tried enabling "Let anonymous people start a meeting"?

Thanks for your response. I have attached a screenshot of the policy I changed so that you can see how it is configured.

 

Interestingly I logged in this morning and did another test and it worked this time, I then updated all my users to have this new policy but theres isn't working. I am wondering if it takes some time to apply these changes? I was testing for a while yesterday (maybe an hour) so I am surprised if it does take that long.

Yes! This is probably the deal here! Some policies takes hours up to days to apply :)

If it worked for you now and you just changed it for others, it will certainly apply a bit later on!!

@EDIT Support yes it takes up to 24 hours for new policies to apply! Give it a try tomorrow and see what happens. :)
