Teams - lobby/waiting room: how to admit all waiting guests at once

New Contributor

Hi there,


I am planning a meeting with a lot of participants and I want to set the setting to "all have to wait in the lobby/waiting room" before the meeting starts.

However when the meeting is supposed to start I want to admit all guests at once, not select all 200 in the waiting room individually.

Is there a possiblity to do this??

Do you not see an Admit all button in the participants list ?

Hi Steven. Thanks for the answer. I believe this button was not visible in my teams meeting.

I have to check again.


Best, Katie

@Steven Collier. Found it. So obvious in the end. Thanks for your help.
