This article provides instructions on how to allow participants to join the meeting without the host in Rainbow Office online account, desktop app, and mobile apps.

For additional security, all scheduled meetings in Rainbow Office Video require the host to be in attendance before participants can join. The host, however, can configure the meeting settings so that participants join earlier than the scheduled time. This is helpful in instances that the host cannot attend the meeting but wants it to continue regardless.
