Joining a Moderated Meeting

Joining a moderated meeting from a Chime client or the web app

Attendees of a moderated meeting receive an auto-call if meet@chime.aws is invited and other attendees join by clicking on the meeting link and then choose their audio source or dial-in or join from an in-room video system.

The images below show the join flow from the Windows client. Moderated meetings start the same as standard Chime meetings where the attendee answers and then chooses their meeting audio.


Note: The Message all option, which uses the Chime meeting chat functionality in the roster, is disabled until the moderated meeting is started. If an attendee chooses Message all before the meeting is started, they will receive a message indicating that the option has been disabled.

Note: The Running late status, which is displayed on the Chime Meeting roster, is not shown to attendees until the moderated meeting is started.

If an attendee is not joining as the host or one of their delegates, and a moderator has not yet joined, they are placed into a waiting state which indicates that the meeting is moderated and that the meeting will begin when a moderator joins.


While waiting, attendees have the option to Enter moderator passcode.

To start the meeting, select Enter moderator passcode. If joining from a phone or in-room video system, the moderator passcode can be entered at any time followed by “#” (pound or hash sign).
For security reasons, Chime does not provide a response if the user enters an incorrect passcode. If the correct passcode is entered the meeting will start and attendees will be able to interact.

Joining a moderated meeting from an in-room video system

Joining a moderated meeting from an in-room video system (SIP or H.323 endpoints) starts the same way as joining a standard meeting. After joining from an H.323 device ( 52.23.133.56) or from a SIP device ( u@meet.chime.in) an attendee is prompted to enter the Meeting PIN. If you join using an Alexa device or using the SIP URI ( @meet.chime.in ) you may bypass this screen.


Note: If you are the host or a delegate, you can obtain your 13-digit meeting ID from a Chime client or the web app on the Dial-in tab to start the meeting and be granted host controls.

If an attendee is joining and the meeting has not been started by another moderator, the host or their delegate, they are placed into a waiting state with no audio or video which indicates that the meeting will begin when a moderator joins.

While waiting, attendees have the option to Enter a moderator passcode. To start the meeting, enter the moderator passcode using the device's dial-pad followed by the “ #” (pound or hash sign).

Please see Host from Dial-in or In-room Video Conference Systems below for more details on how moderators can control the meeting when joining from an in-room video system.

For security reasons, Chime will not provide a response if the moderator passcode entered is incorrect. If the correct moderator passcode is entered the meeting will start and attendees will be able to interact.

Joining a Moderated meeting from a Phone

Joining a moderated meeting from a phone starts the same way as joining a standard meeting; an attendee dials a phone number for a country they select (see https://aws.amazon.com/chime/dial-in-numbers) and then are prompted to enter the meeting ID. If the meeting is moderated and has not yet started, a cue will be played indicating that the meeting is waiting for the moderator to join and instructions on how to enter the moderator passcode. To enter the moderator passcode, use the dial-pad to type in the passcode followed by “ #” (pound or hash sign). Please see Host from Dial-in or In-room Video Conference Systems below for more details on how moderators can control the meeting when dialing in.

For security reasons, Chime will not provide a response if the passcode entered is incorrect. If the correct passcode is entered the meeting will start and attendees will be able to interact.
