You can also dial in to the meeting from any phone by dialing the Join by Phone numbers listed in the meeting request. The dial-in phone number is listed towards the bottom of the request.NOTE: When you join a Lync Meeting by dialing in, your telephone number is displayed in the meeting roster.
The meeting lobby is an online waiting area. The meeting leader can control access to the meeting, or admit someone who doesn’t have the correct meeting credentials.
If the meeting leader has enabled the meeting lobby, you’ll need to wait until the meeting leader admits you to the meeting. If you’re waiting in the lobby, don’t move to another screen because your request to join the meeting will be cancelled if you do.
