M365 Changelog: Improvements to ‘People I Invite’ Meeting Lobby Policy

MC546448 – Currently in a Teams Meeting, you may update the lobby policy of a meeting to ‘People I invite’ but cannot include distribution lists as part of the Invited Users. With this new update, you will be able to add a Distribution List to the Invite list and allow those users who are part of that distribution to bypass the lobby if the Lobby policy is set to ‘People I Invite.’
