The new meeting feature has been available to you for a few weeks now and enjoys great popularity. However, new possibilities often require a little explanation and so in this meeting room FAQ we have summarized the answers to the most frequently asked questions about the use of the new meeting rooms.
The meeting room was designed for spontaneous video conferences. edudip next enables you to organize virtual meetings and connect up to 25 participants regardless of location with the best video and audio quality. The simple link participation ensures fast and uncomplicated digital collaboration with your business partners, customers and employees – even working from home.
You can hold webinars and meetings at the same time, but you have to assign the meeting room to a colleague in the team administration, as you cannot be represented in two simultaneous appointments with one email address. It is the same method as for offline events: A person hosting a seminar at 3 p.m. cannot be in a meeting at the same time.
The meeting room was designed for spontaneous meetings or discussions planned at short notice and not for events that extend over several days. If you are planning an event over several days, we recommend that you create a series of webinars. The possibility of creating a ‘meeting series’ with edudip next is not planned for the time being.
There is no time limit. The duration of the meeting is unlimited. The meeting ends when the last participant has left the room.
The meeting room is designed as an open room that can be entered and exited at any time with the shared link. The start time should be set to notify meeting attendees via email what day and time the meeting will start. The duration and the planned end time of a video conference can currently not be determined in advance. However, since this leads to planning uncertainties on the part of the participants, it will be possible in the future to also specify the expected duration of the meeting.
Regardless of the subscription booked, up to 3 co-moderators can be appointed. In contrast to webinars, co-moderators cannot be determined in advance for meetings and can only be appointed in the meeting room. The meeting can be started by moderators and co-moderators. However, since co-moderators can only be appointed in the meeting room, the main moderator must enter the room at least once before the meeting starts in order to appoint any participant as co-moderator. The co-moderator can start the meeting, even if the main moderator has left the room.
You can find your meeting room licenses under the menu option ‘Team Administration’. Your available meeting rooms are displayed here, which you can then assign to your team colleagues.
No, this is not possible.
In the meeting room you have the option of removing a participant by clicking on the ‘X’ next to the participant’s name in the participant list. The meeting room was designed as an ‘open space’ so that it can be accessed spontaneously at any time. However, this applies to anyone who knows your meeting room’s link and optional password. It is therefore important to change your password and the share link regularly in order to avoid unwanted visits from participants of past events.
Telephone dial-in is unfortunately not yet available for edudip next meetings. However, this is planned for the future.
The functions can be used by all (co-) moderators. All other participants have the option of asking the moderators to use screen sharing.
