"No One" choice in the lobby.
Please add the "No one" choice to the Meeting Options section, aka. The Lobby.
We are happy to announce the “Only me” option for “Who can bypass lobby?” setting is now available for Teams meetings. Details on the new lobby option can be found here, https://support.microsoft.com/office/change-participant-settings-for-a-teams-meeting-53261366-dbd5-45f9-aae9-a70e6354f88e.

Students must be hold before start meeting by Organizer

We're in the same boat. As a training provider we can't use Teams for anything until we can keep users in a lobby and let them in/kick them out as required. A colleague had a meeting today in which he wanted someone to come in for a short presentation, and then leave. Currently the organiser has no control of when they can join.

If this feature can also make sure people that are admitted cannot see the chat function when leaving the meeting that would be amazing!!
Why is this not a thing yet? My organization won't let me use Teams Live for a large meeting so I need to be able to keep everyone in the lobby before a presentation.
Yes... Please add NO One feature in who can bypass lobby... So that we can admit students only after teacher start meeting.

I hope have this option implement quikly

I'd like to see the no-one and also a Presenters only option so that one person can organise / schedule the meeting with the "Presenters bypass the lobby" option so that then the organiser who might be an administraor / PA doesn't have to attend the meeting to let people in. The organiser can set specific people as presenters and then they can also bypass the lobby while ensuring that attendees remain in the lobby until such time as the presenters are ready to start allowing in attendees.
As an adjunct there should also be a "lock the meeting" option to prevent others from then joining once the meeting is in progress.
We need "NO ONE" to join or to wait in the lobby until admitted, ASAP. We need to keep kids safe by not allowing them to join a meeting without the teacher. PLEASE make this a top priority very soon!
We need this ASP

Is this still scheduled for June release?
Please give this request priority - this missing feature presents a grave security risk for our organization.

Would love to see this option asap.
I need to be the only one able to start a specific meeting. I need it set up so people can't start the meeting at random times and then everyone in the company gets a pop-up notification.
We need this ASP !
We need this for our July parent-teacher conferences.
Any update on the timeline?
