Bypassing passcode when joining a meeting Follow

When a Zoom Room joins a scheduled meeting on its meeting list, users are not required to manually enter the meeting passcode. The Zoom Rooms setting, Bypass the passcode when joining meetings from meeting list, simplifies the process of allowing the room to join its scheduled meeting with quicker access. Additionally, the meeting passcode must be included in the meeting invitation that is sent to the room's calendar.

Account owners and admins may prefer to disable this feature if they want to include an additional security measure and require users to manually enter the meeting passcode.
