Need "Tone" audio notification that someone is in the lobby waiting to enter the meeting. There is only a visual.

    I have a go live bridge that is open from 8 - 10 hours on go live days. I spend most of the day sitting in the bridge with no one there. It's just an option for our clients. I will work on other things and minimize the WebEx to work on other things during this time. Not having the option for a pop up or a sound is extremely frustrating as sometimes I'll get calls or emails from clients telling me that they have been waiting. As mentioned in other comments, this needs to be a priority.

    Why isn't this implemented yet. Also should pop up someting in the middle of the window that isn't easily ignored.

    Yes this is an essential feature in my opinion and should have its own turn on/off setting because sometimes you may not want beeps for people who can enter without getting into the lobby while you still want to hear the beep for people who are required to go through the lobby.

    The criticality of this feature cannot be overstated. E.g., I'm hosting a solid 7 hour "virtual office hours" for a critical enterprise system implementation, where addressing issues immediately is key. I can't effectively do other work because i have to constantly watch for participants entering the lobby. PLEASE implement! Thanks.

    Easy on zoom. If you're sharing your screen, you don't notice the alert. Needs to be a sound (like a door bell).

    This is a must have feature, mainly when you are sharing and working on two screens.

    I need this feature too. I do not want a client just sitting in the lobby because I missed the visual notification.

    I second this. Especially the need for a more visible alert, as the host is not always monitoring this closely. For instance could be presenting. Maybe integrate into the Win10 Notifications.

    I totally support the need for an audible and visual alert for visitors waiting in the lobby. This is important if the host is working in other active windows and not the webex app

    I agree! An option for an audio tone would be wonderful.

    There needs to be a big flashing sign somewhere and not the micro text that can be easily ignored/overlooked.
