On an iPad, press Join Cloud Meeting
. On an iPhone, tap the More
tab and then choose Join Cloud Meeting
The Join Cloud Meeting view presents the user with an entry field for a Cloud Meeting ID. When you enter a valid ID, the Join
button is enabled. Tap it to join the Cloud Meeting room.
You can only join Cloud Meetings that are based on Connections
® meetings. These IDs always have the form xxxx-xxxx (four digits a dash and four more digits). If you have not yet configured for IBM Connections Cloud
™, you will be prompted for your Connections Cloud user ID and password. If you don't know your Connections Cloud ID, you can choose to join as a Guest participant.
Cloud Meeting IDs based on Unyte
® have the form xxx-xxx (three digits a dash and 3 more digits). If you enter a Unyte
meeting ID, the Join button will not enable.
Cloud Meetings can be hosted from three different data centers world wide: the North American data center (NA), the Asia Pacific data center (AP), and the Central Europe data center (CE). Meetings hosted on the AP data center will start with the letter A (for example, Axxxx-xxxx). Meetings hosted in the CE data center will start with the letter E (Exxxx-xxxx). Meetings hosted in the NA data center have no letter prefix. Users will typically only join meetings on one data center, but it is possible to have Connections Cloud configurations for more than one. Each of these can have its own unique credentials, or they can all be configured with guest access.
If you are joining a Cloud Meeting that you own or manage, and you are the first to join, then you will be presented with a Start Meeting dialog where you can Specify who can join the meeting. The options include:
- Only authenticated users from <your company name>
- Authenticated users from any company
- Anyone, including guests
The organization has a default setting for who can join but the first manager to join can override that setting for each meeting instance.
The organization can also determine whether or not passwords are required for all meeting rooms. If a password is required, the manger must set a password (or modify a preexisting password) on the Start Meeting dialog.
The manager can only remove room passwords if the organization does not require them.
These same settings are also available inside the meeting room under the Change Room Settings menu.
