Unable to bypass the lobby

Larry Powers 1 Reputation point

Under "Meeting Policies/Participants and Guests" I have the "Automatically admit people" set to "Everyone," but meeting attendees still have to sit in the lobby until someone admits them. I can't even get into a meeting that I set up unless someone lets me in. Is there another setting somewhere to manage this?

    Hi @Larry Powers ,

    If you don’t want external users to wait in the lobby, you can go to Teams Admin center, under Meetings > Meeting Policies. In the policy at the bottom is option for Participants & Guests, "Automatically admin users", try changing that to Everyone I believe will auto admit anon users to meetings. This change will need some time to update.
