Skype For Business Meeting Options Missing per deivce for 'Wait in Lobby' RRS feed

  • Question

  • when creating a Skype for Business meeting in Outlook, Some users on my domain do not get the option to change the Skype Meeting Options. The settings for the A new meeting space(I control permissions) is not offering them the option to select that Anyone(no Restrictions) for people to wait in the lobby. how do I fix this issue for the individual users?Image

    My computer has it, but the computer next to me doesn't. That is using the same domain login.

    We found a post about the registry setting but it doesn't stick. We close Outlook, make the registry addition, reopen Outlook- the setting is wiped.

    Please help, boss needs the ability to have this and he doesn't.

  • Hello Crossb0nes,

    It is indeed correct. but in SfB 2015 server if the presenter has not joined the conference they will wait in the lobby room regardless the setting.




    Allow participants to invite anonymous users   This setting allows meeting organizers to invite anonymous (that is, unauthenticated) participants to meetings. This setting is optional for dial-in conferencing. This setting is selected by default in the default global conferencing policy.

    wasn't checked on boss' policy but was on mine. I verified that when my second AD account was the non-working group then check the check box, closed and re-opened Outlook, the option for Anyone(no restrictions) was available for lobby not waiting.

    This was the only difference that I saw. After reading the Help for this item, it seems to make sense. We didn't set up this initially so I have been trying to read on all the policies and settings, learning as I go. Can you confirm this setting as the correct fix, since it does work and provide the option? Thanks.

  • Can you check the conference policy of this user and verify the working users with the non working users.

    You can change the behavior for online meetings on the conference policy and assign this conference policy to all users.
