How an OGL proceeds with a new and unresponsive member is a protocol to be discussed with their Online Trainer. 

Some leaders prefer a Meet and Greet/Tech Check on Zoom or some sort of advance communication at a minimum with new members before admitting them to a discussion meeting. OGL may also expect their members to update their Account Profiles with accurate information. 

OGL also has the ability to Enable Waiting Rooms on their host functions should they want to ensure a greater level of security for their group.

Finally, the leader has the ability to remove members from their discussion and group, should that become necessary.

To enable the "Waiting Room" security feature:

  • Start your meeting through the BSF Online website
  • In your Zoom Meeting, select "Security" and then select "Enable Waiting Room"
