Zoom -- Waiting Room to Manage Office Hours Attendance

Video Instructions - RECOMMENDED

Per the Zoom webpage below, "The Waiting Room feature allows the host to control when a participant joins the meeting." 

As the meeting host, you can admit attendees one by one or hold all attendees in the waiting room and admit them all at once.

This *short video below* does a great job of explaining how to use the "Waiting Room" feature in Zoom.
