Waiting Rooms in Zoom
As of Sunday, September 20, all Zoom meetings will be required to have a Waiting Room to increase meeting security.
The Waiting Room meeting option will be automatically set to a locked “on” condition. However, meeting participants who have logged into Zoom via the UMD Zoom portal (umd.zoom.us) or the Zoom client with their UMD Directory credentials before accessing the link to the meeting will automatically pass through the Waiting Room into the scheduled session. All other individuals desiring to participate in a meeting, including those with non-UMD identities, will be held in the Waiting Room until the meeting host(s) recognize and admit them.
Meeting hosts will see the Waiting Room list via the Participant list once they have entered the meeting room.
