    There are two parts to this topic:

    1) Completed: Bypass the lobby for PSTN: The ability for admins and organizers to be able to specify a meeting option to bypass the PSTN lobby independently of the VoIP lobby.

    2) On the backlog: Ability for an organizer joined via PSTN to admit users from the lobby with a PIN. If you enable “Always let callers bypass the lobby” in your meeting options, people calling in by phone will join your meeting without having to wait for someone to admit them. See details here:

    Please Note: In Q2CY20, we launched a new default in for the Teams meeting policy ( If tenants have not modified their default meeting policy, lobby is now enforced.

    Alex - does this roadmap item cover all the functionality listed here, i.e. we might see something in November?

    Hi Alex - could you provide an update on this please? It's currently a blocker for our company-wide rollout.

    If the organiser joins via dial-in and enters PIN, this should admit everyone that has been waiting to join. We cannot assume that the organiser will be joining via Teams app.

    Many thanks!
