The quickest method to start a meeting is to join your personal meeting room. It's two clicks from landing at Batipi, by clicking on "login", then "join meeting room" from the main dashboard. Your personal meeting room is an ideal option for meetings on the fly with colleagues or clients.
Inviting participants to your personal meeting room
Prior to meeting:
To invite participants to your meeting room, simply copy the URL to your room (click next to join meeting room to copy the URL to your clipboard) and send this to your attendees
There are more options available for inviting participants to your meeting room, once you have logged into the meeting. Select invite on the meeting toolbar and the following options will be available:
- Select your email client (default program, gmail, yahoo), to automatically create message and pre-populate an invitation to participants
- Copy the meeting URL to your clipboard
- Copy the meeting invitation to your clipboard
The meeting URL will provide direct access to your personal meeting room. If it's the first time the attendee has joined a meeting, they will automatically download the meeting client in the background while they are logging in. The process for attendees to join a meeting is straight forward and self explanatory to navigate.
Shortening The personal meeting room URL
Currently, we're adding more functionality around managing your personal meeting room settings, which will include updating the meeting URL or adding a vanity URL. Another good option is to use one of the URL shortening services. This will allow you to distribute a shortened URL and easily update/change at anytime. There are a host of various services with advanced features for tracking. To get started, you may want to try Google's URL shortening service at goo.gl.
