Participating in Meetings on an Android deviceAdded by IBM on September 9, 2014 | Version 1 (Original)
|You can participate in a meeting by viewing the content being shared by the presenter, displaying those who have joined the room, viewing and sending discussion items, and sharing documents from the library.
You can display and hide the meeting room's vertical tab bar and side panel by pressing the sidebar menu icon on the top left of the screen, which appears as three horizontal lines. The vertical tab bar allows you to choose what is shown in the side panel view of the meeting screen by pressing the following tabs:
Table 1. Vertical bar actions
|Meeting||Only available on Android phones. Displays the projector window in the main view. This is the default view when joining meetings on a phone.|
|Participants||Switches to the Participants view, which lists all participants and room owners in the meeting. From this view you can tell who is sharing, who has their hand raised, and who is participating in the voice and video portion of the meeting.|
|Library||Switches to the Library view, which shows all user uploaded files, links, and polls available for the meeting. |
|Discussion ||Switches to the Discussion view, which shows all messages between the room participants for the meeting.|
|Video||If the room is provisioned for Audio and Video, this view will show up to four video feeds once the user has joined the video portion of the call. |

|Start Recording||Starts a server side recording of the room. The server performs the recording and saves and stores the file. Only room owners and managers have this option. Touching it allows the user to specify the name of the recording, the file format of the recording - (either Windows Media (WMV/.wmv) or Quicktime (H.264/.mov) - and the privacy setting (public or private). A public recording can be viewed by any user in the room when the user opens the View Recordings option menu (described below). Private recordings are only available to owners and managers of the room.|
|Room Tools||Displays the following sub menus:
- Change Room Settings
Allows you to change basic room settings, such as the room name, security settings, and call in information. You can also set whether the room is a "Lecture Style Meeting" in order to improve performance. This option is only available for Room Managers and Owners.

Allows you to set who (everyone, selected participants, or owners and managers only) can perform a variety of meeting functions (present, download from the library, and manage the meeting room). This option is only available for Room Managers and Owners.
