Allow chosen presenters to bypass the lobby
We have bypass lobby options for Everyone, People in the Org (and trusted) and soon to be "Only Me".
Are we able to have a "Specific People" option too? So that we can have our chosen Presenters also have the ability to Bypass the lobby?
This would be hugely helpful to us here as well. Just an 'Organiser and presenters' bypass lobby option
As a teacher who shares 2 classes with another teacher, this would be amazingly helpful! We work with younger children so setting up extra meeting links is not an option. We both need to have all of the same controls in one meeting link.
It is an interruption of the class flow to let in interventionist that come on a regular basis.

Put your votes together :)
You should at least be able to have an alternate that can start the meeting and admit people from the lobby!

This would be soooooo helpful for substitute teachers, as well as support teachers so they can begin the meeting if the organizer is not there first.
Presenters should be able to bypass lobby and start the meeting, only when an organizer or presenter enters the meeting they should be able to allow people enter the meeting from the lobby.
Yes please. It would be problematic for our use if the Organizer is the only person who has to start the meeting and let people in, but we would love to be able to limit attendees' ability to start the meeting without a host (i.e., Organizer or Presenter) present.
