We would like to request a feature to have the option to enable and set globally via RingCentral Service User portal for Ring Central Meetings for "Allow guest to join before host".

This would make it simpler to control and would not require to set this on individual meetings, it could be set for each user if needed.

1. Account type - US
2. Description of business - Healthcare related business
3. Description of request - Enabling "allow guests to join before host" to be set globally in RC User Service portal.
4. Use case - The users would have this option set as default for the RingCentral Meetings and can disable it for meetings they need to control guest access.
5. Benefit - simplify use of RingCentral Meetings
6. Number of users - 30

I agree this should be an option. We are moving away from a 800 person Zoom account to RC Meetings and need this option. 
Hi everyone

We are working on this feature for 20.2 and expect this to be supported on the RingCentral Meetings standalone clients approximately end-of-May. Other clients (e.g. RC integrated apps) will follow soon after.
With this feature, admins will be able to set "Join Before Host" for the entire account to ON or OFF, and if they want to, lock it for everybody. If the setting is locked, then users would not be able to change it.

Exact date and version details will be shared closer to release.
