This page will detail some best practices to use for your Google Meets.
These best practices will help minimize problems such as students being the first to enter a Meet or calling outbound phones from inside the Meet.
It is important to note that the first person to click on the link to the Meet becomes the owner. To prevent students from entering the class before you and becoming the owner of the Meet, please follow these practices:
For information on showing/hiding and resetting your Classroom Meet link, see Google's documentation here.
It is important that you ensure you have Host Controls when the Meet begins, because if a student becomes owner of the Meet, they can remove other participants. This is usually what generates the “You have been removed from the meeting” message.
Host Controls are denoted by a blue shield icon in the bottom left of the Meet bar.
Quick Access is the most important of the Host Controls, as it dictates whether someone needs to ask for permission to join or not. It is a best practice to leave Quick Access off and verify participants as they enter. You will need to disable Quick Access for each meeting every day, as the setting is not persistent.
