Participant Joined a Meeting Before Host


While scheduling a meeting, the organizer/host of the meeting can turn on the Enable join before host option to allow attendees to join the meeting even before the host of the meeting has arrived. If this option is enabled for a meeting, the meeting starts as soon as a participant joins.

The “Meeting Participant Joined Before Host” event is triggered every time an attendee joins a meeting before the host. The host of the meeting must be a user in your account or a user in any other accounts that have installed your webhook-enabled app.

To receive this notification, you must meet the prerequisites listed below.

Prerequisites:

  • Pro or a higher plan.
  • "Enable join before host" option should be turned on for the scheduled meeting.
  • Event Subscriptions must be enabled for your Marketplace app with the following configurations:
    • A valid Event Notification Endpoint URL.
    • "Participant joined meeting before host" subscription enabled under the Meeting event.

The tabs below display the complete schema, payload with data types, and an example of the meeting.participant_jbh_joined event notification:
