"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.

Allow students to stay in lobby is useful function for Teachers.
Teacher need to admit all identity of students in our case.
Per Atle Eliassen commented
I'm representing the largest university of Norway (40.000 students). To successfully administer oral exams in Teams in the education sector, we need to give all students only one meeting url pr examinator/subject/day, and let the examinators admit access for single participants (students) waiting in the lobby. We're just a few weeks away from the first exams, so ASAP would be nice.

We Need LOBBY ASAP!
I concur, teachers must be able to prevent students from entering early or rejoining late.

My company is very interested in this feature. Could really use it ASAP.
We need this too. We don't want students to join meetings without the teacher present. Having a policy setting that has them wait in the lobby would solve this problem.
Seria muy recomandable

This is particularly important in K-12 education settings where you want to be able to control what access the students have before or after the meeting; from a safeguarding perspective
Stefano Musolino commented
Yes it would be VERY useful!
Barry Johnson commented
It would be nice for Teams "Meet Now" sessions to hold participants in the lobby until the meeting has started. Too many times the participant starts the meeting long before the scheduled time. Unfortunately, all of our participants are in our organization and the only waiting room option is for Guests.
Any idea if/when this feature could be deployed?
Yuna Suzuki commented
SfBO has this feature, should be deployed in Teams as well.
In addition, Teams Live Event should have this feature!!

The current lobby setting does not allow users in the organization to be in lobby waiting.
For this reason, we want users in the organization to add a separate setting to wait in the lobby.
Absolutely need to be able to lock meetings or force everyone to be admitted so that attendees can be limited in sensitive discussions.

Why not have the same possibility to configure this as Skype has?
