It would be nice to have the ability to Enable the Waiting Room/Lobby option Per-Meeting.
Not just an all or nothing User Account level setting. 

This option is an available feature that Zoom currently allows, when you schedule a meeting, and it would be nice to have that feature when scheduling RingCentral Meetings as well.

It also would be very useful, to be able to have this option available to turn on (as an on demand setting) that you can enable from within an active meeting.

Great idea Justin. I have this available when I schedule my Zoom meetings (in the advanced section). It is a very handy feature! Also great that you can have this available per-meeting rather than needing to globally do so.

Zoom does have a free-account option if RingCentral can't offer this. I do find this odd since RC runs on the Zoom platform. Perhaps their developers aren't aware or didn't add the option yet?

Brilliant idea. Thanks for bringing this up, Justin.
Totally agree! I thought the whole point of cloud services was to rapidly propagate new features. I wonder why this is taking so long to come from Zoom to Ring Central?
