Controls include

  • Control participants in near-real-time during the meeting:
    • Control participants – avoid users with conflicts joining the same meeting
    • Control activities – block operations that are not allowed

Activities control are context-aware, by blocking operations only when specific groups or users are involved in the meeting which allows for full functionality when possible and aligns with compliance by blocking some features when needed.
