On a tablet, press Join SmartCloud Meeting
. On a phone, tap the Menu button then choose Join SmartCloud Meeting
The Join SmartCloud Meeting view presents you with an entry field for a SmartCloud meeting ID. When you enter a valid ID, the Join
button is enabled. Tap it to join the SmartCloud meeting room.
You can only join SmartCloud meetings that are based on Sametime meetings. These IDs always have the form xxxx-xxxx (four digits, a dash, four more digits). If you have not yet configured for IBM SmartCloud, you will be prompted for your SmartCloud user ID and password. If you do not know your SmartCloud ID, you can choose to join as a Guest participant.
IBM SmartCloud meeting IDs based on Unyte have the form xxx-xxx (three digits, a dash, 3 more digits). If you enter a Unyte meeting ID, the Join
button will not enable.
SmartCloud 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 SmartCloud 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 SmartCloud 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.
