This is normally happens when you join the meeting as an external user or joined by dialing into conference number, you have to wait in the meeting lobby until someone admit into the meeting
either Organizer or other participants will get a notification that someone is waiting in the lobby "please admit or reject "@ellie112
Please confirm the settings

Thanks for posting the issue in this forum.
"When the meeting starts, we'll let people know you're waiting." this means, Host or organizer needs to allow/accept you in the meeting. Until you're in the lobby.

Same issue here. The whole team can't work properly with clients accounts because of it.
The outlook is synched with both email addresses but we can only use one Teams account without an issue. Usually the one we are logged in on the Teams app.
I'm guessing allowing additional clients accounts on Teams would solve the issue.
When will Microsoft fix it?

@Sarah_G210 Wow. I would imagine MS has the resources to fix this problem given how old it is. I just email-migrated our little company to MS for email and MS O365 Premium. This is supposed to include Teams. Tried to do a meeting last night and no one (including me) could get in. We had to use zoom.

For starters, this is not a bug. Rather it's the Teams app that doesn't handle multi-accounts / multi-tenants particular well at this point. In general you should be signed in to Teams desktop and Outlook desktop with the same account to avoid issues. When clicking a meeting link and being signed in to Teams, you need to be signed in with the associated account/org. to which the invite was sent (or enter as anonymous guest not signed in). If not Teams is going to use the signed in account/org. credentials trying to access a meeting in which they weren't invited to, hence being stuck in the lobby as not being recognized (that is if not "everyone" is allowed).
So this is a combination of using the Lobby options as an organizer and which tenant you're currently signed in to.
Using InPrivate / Incognito browser sessions is an alternative if having issues with the app.
Choose who can bypass the lobby

@Simon_Ogden it's madness isn't it ?! Makes me angry that MS can't be bothered to sort it out they are so arrogant. And I agree Zoom far more reliable.
