Bypass the Teams Lobby

Enable bots to bypass the Microsoft Teams lobby.

There are two ways for Microsoft Teams bots to be able to bypass the lobby:

  1. Authenticate bots using Microsoft Teams Bot Login
  2. Have the end user allow everyone to bypass the lobby

Below shows the Microsoft Teams settings for lobby behavior

  • Green: Bots will be able to join without authenticating if the end user changes their setting to "Everyone"
  • Red: Bots will bypass the lobby only if they're authenticated, otherwise they will go through the lobby
