Zoom waiting room

Post by Scott »

We have had trolls zoom-bombing us lately. The meeting leaders experienced with Zoom have been discussing ways to handle this.

First step is to try using the Waiting Room feature. We'll soon have a little tutorial on using it. We will probably need a volunteer co-host at each Zoom meeting to admit people from the Waiting Room while the host is leading. It will probably become important for the host and co-host to arrive five minutes early to get set up and begin admitting early arrivals.

If you run into any problems, feel free to post here or write oomgleaders@cgaa.info (or if you're a leader, you can post to the leader WhatsApp group.)
