Table 1. Settings menu
Parent topic: Getting started on your Android device
|Servers||Here you can select an existing server to edit, add a new meeting server, or delete an existing server. For more information, refer to Initial startup and configuration on Android devices.|
|Voice and Video||Displays a secondary dialog where you can manage the voice and video settings for Sametime Meetings. You can Enable Voice and Video, Enable Voice Only, or Disable Voice and Video support. If some of these settings are not present, then your device does not support voice and/or video. |
You can also manage your data plan usage on the Voice and Video settings screen by allowing voice and video only when connected to Wi-Fi.
Note: The Sametime Voice and Video functionality is unable to report your physical location when making emergency calls. During an emergency, you should use a true telephone.
|Participant List Images||Set whether to display participant images (can be turned off to increase performance).|
|Discussion Images||Set whether to display images in the Discussion view (can be turned off to increase performance).|
|Data Plan Usage Reminder||Check this option if you want a reminder when you start tasks that might use a significant amount of your data plan. Examples include participating in a Voice and Video meeting while not being connected to Wi-Fi, or downloading a recording or library document. |
This option is on by default. Users with an unlimited data plan may choose to turn it off so they aren't bothered with the warning messages.
|Scheduled View||Set whether to display the Scheduled tab on the main screen of the app. The scheduled tab shows meeting events from the Android 4.0 Calendar app and the IBM Traveler calendar.|
Note: This feature requires IBM Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2 or later.
