How to stop participants from beginning meeting early

Occasional Visitor

Hi all,


I did my first live scheduled meeting today for pupils in our school. However, when I "joined" the meeting some of the children were already there. How do I go about ensuring that only I can start the meeting? I presumed there was a lobby/waiting room feature but unsure how to do it.


Thank you for any support.
