Teams meeting that I created will not let me join

Occasional Visitor

I have created several video meetings within Teams.  When I click on the invitation link within my Outlook calendar or the "join" button I am brought to Teams.  I confirm that my camera is on and that I am going to use my computer audio.  When I click the "join" button I get the message - 

"when the meeting starts, we’ll let people know you’re waiting”.


Mu invited guest get the same message and are waiting on their end as well.


I created the meeting.  I would assume that I could join the meeting and that I would be notified when they are queued up to be admitted to the meeting.

Anyone have an idea what is going on here?

Hello, it sounds as if you're being treated as an external user here. As you use the Outlook client when clicking on the link you're directed to Teams and I get the feeling you're signed in at another tenant and not your home tenant. I would start by checking that in Teams. If no change, sign out from Teams and shut down Outlook as well. Sign in to Teams and start Outlook again.
