Better Lobby Control
Right now the ability to admit users from the lobby is limited by the meeting role. The organizer and presenters can admit users from the lobby but attendees cannot.
Lobby control should be more granular. What if I want a handful of users to be able to present but I only want the organizer to admit users from the lobby? There isn't an ideal way to do this currently.
There should be an additional option which separates lobby control out from the presenter role.
A meeting option button "Who can admit users from the lobby" with a drop down would be great.
We have this problem all the time. Security is paramount so we need to ensure that presenters are not admitting people from the lobby.
Some high level Board Meetings require strict and tight control as to who can/cannot join a meeting and they (Board) have people to control the meeting, attendees etc.. They do not want attendees or presenters to allow access

Agree. Presenter should only be able to present, not moderate/organize the meeting. This is the biggest unresolveable security risk in Teams to date, for any user and company!
We have the need that different users can present, but they MUST NOT be able to mute/unmute or admit/kick other users. Please introduce a new role to the meetings, like moderator, and strip the presenter role of all but the presenting right+attendee rights.
We too are looking for this feature. We have meetings where presenters come in and leave and they should have ability to present but not have the same abilities of the organizer/host(s) such as admitting people from lobby.

The control of the lobby can be on the moderators role

This is also a major issue with my organization adopting Teams. MS please move this feature to the top of the "REQUIRED" list.

What I see in our tenant is that anyone can admit someone from the lobby, and most do it without verifying who they are. Best solution would be the presenter and a select group, but presenter and his delegates would work as well. Please Microsoft, Security first, right?
Yes. The ability to separate attendee from presenter from meeting admin from meeting organizer would be very helpful in day to day operation of teams.
