To do so, perform the following procedure:
- Select the "+" icon at the top right or the My Rooms view.
- Enter the meeting room information:
Table 1. New Meeting Room dialog
|Room Name||Enter a name for the meeting room.|
|Voice and Video||Specify the Voice and Video capability of this room by pressing the gray arrow icon for this setting. This will display a list of service providers for Voice and Video as well as an entry field for free form call-in information. If there are no Voice and Video service providers, then the setting will default to Unspecified, and the room will not have Voice and Video capability. The Call-in information will default to the entries for My Conference Number and My participant passcode from the settings. |
Note: Some service providers, such as Sametime Audio/Video Conferencing, may be provisioned with multiple virtual conference rooms that are optimized differently. If this is the case, tapping the gray arrow icon next to the service provider will display the available conference rooms for your selection.
|Hidden Room||Select whether the meeting room will be a hidden room. Hidden meeting rooms do not display in search results, and are only accessible by invitation.|
|Managed Access||Select if the meeting room will have managed access. Users cannot join managed rooms until the room owner or manager has joined.|
|Room Password||Enter a password for the room, if desired. Meeting room passwords are optional.|
Note: Your administrator may require that all rooms be password protected. If this is the case, this setting will be required rather than optional.
|Repeat Password||Reenter the password for verification.|
The new room will display in your My Room view. You can favorite rooms by selecting the star icon to the left of their name.
Users cannot create meeting rooms on the IBM SmartCloud
™ server from the device.
Guest users cannot create meeting rooms. This means if you set yourself as a guest when you configured the server, you will not have the authority to create rooms on that server.
