Setting Up and Using Waiting Rooms for your Zoom Meetings

As stated in the Zoom Security website, the Waiting Room is just like it sounds: It's a virtual staging area that prevents people from joining a meeting until the host is read. Meeting hosts can customize the Waiting Room settings to gain further control over which participants join a specific meeting and when.

Enabling Registration Requirements for Large Meetings/Events

Some meetings may be too large to keep track of who is in the meeting. A great way to help with that is by setting up "Registration" as a requirement for participants in order to receive the correct link to join your meeting.
