When "Quick access" is on:
- Participants in the same domain as the host do not need to knock to request to join the meeting.
- Participants joining by phone do not need to knock to request to join the meeting.
When "Quick access" is turned off:
- All users, including those in the same domain as the host, must knock to request to join the meeting unless they're on the calendar invite. This includes any users who are dialing into the meeting by phone.
- Any participants invited from within the meeting by anyone other than the host need to knock to request to join.
