Allow Participants to Join Before Host

This section provides instructions on how you can enable the Join Before Host feature in both AT&T Office@Hand Meetings for Desktop and AT&T Office@Hand Meetings for iOS and Android.

How to enable Join Before Host

The Join before host feature enables attendees to join the meeting before the Host joins or when the Host cannot attend the meeting. The feature can be enabled before scheduling a meeting, while scheduling a meeting, and even after the meeting has been scheduled.

If you do not select join before host, the participants will see a pop-up dialog that says “The meeting is waiting for the host to join.” If you are the host, there is a login button to login and start the meeting as the host.
