Someone entering the lobby of a locked Webex meeting disrupts an in process video that is being shared with attendees

We want the option to allow people to enter the lobby so they can be added to the meeting if/when appropriate but we would like them doing so to not interrupt videos and other sharing.


Some more details: Right now, when a user in a Webex meeting permits new attendees to enter the lobby (rather than block them or immediately permit them entry), if they are sharing a video at the time the person enters the lobby, the video will stop playing. We want the new lobby entry to notify the host of the meeting but we want the video to keep playing instead of stopping when some enters the lobby.

    I see more info is being requested but cannot see any indication about what info is being requested.
