Re: Zoom meetings and backup host question

Enabling the waiting room automatically disables the setting for allowing participants to join before host. 
So people would have to sign in with a password to use Join Before Host.

At the moment— people can join before the host or without the host, but only the host can designate co-hosts and has access to the CC feature and API code. 

We had this problem in an HLAA GITHL committee meeting recently. 

I anticipate this feature may go away soon to make the platform more secure.

I found this interesting...Zoom actually anticipates this situation in their direct quote...regarding their setting "participants join before host = on"
If you activate this setting, Jaynie has an excellent review of the settings that should be ON to make the meeting a seamless one, without the host. I will let her share it when she is ready to.

"Join before host allows attendees to join the meeting before the host joins or when the host cannot attend the meeting. If you enable join before host, then the participants can join the meeting before the host joins or without the host." etc...
