When I attempt to initiate a scheduled RingCentral Meeting using the assigned conference number, I (and other attendees) are not able to join until the meeting has been started.  Do I need to use the app (from a PC, tablet, or phone) to initiate?  With my audio conference line, I can initiate using the host code, but that option doesn't appear to exist for conference numbers that are set by the RingCentral Meetings application.

Hi Mike. This is likely due to the way the meeting is set up. When you create a scheduled meeting you can select to "enable join before host".

If you would like to edit an existing meeting that you created, then you can click the meetings list, hover over the meeting, and select edit to enable this after the fact.
