Meetings can be joined by selecting a room in the Favorite Rooms list, Recent Rooms list, My Rooms list or Search results or by using the Join by URL
To join a meeting room, perform one of the following actions:
- Tap the name of a meeting room from one of your room lists.
- Select the chain icon at the bottom left of the sidebar to display the Join by URL dialog. From here, enter the URL for a meeting as well as your user ID and password (if required). If you have previously copied the URL into your device's clipboard, it will auto-fill in the correct field.
- If you do not have a URL or the meeting room is not in your room list, you can search for the room using the search tool. For more information, see Searching for meeting rooms.
The normal form of a Sametime Meeting room URL is:
http(s)://<server>/stmeetings/room/<owner id>/<room name>
However, due to the use of HTTP or HTTPS, when you tap one of these links outside the Sametime Meetings Viewer application (for instance, in a mail or text message), your Apple device will open the URL in a browser instead of the Sametime Meetings Viewer application. To avoid this problem when sending meeting room URLs to other people, you can use a customized URL that does not contain HTTP or HTTPS. To get this URL for your meeting room, open the meeting room information by tapping the blue Detail disclosure
icon next to the meeting room name in the meeting room list. The custom URL is displayed there, and you can select and copy it to your clipboard. You can also copy the URL from inside a meeting room by tapping the Meeting Info
button, where the URL is also displayed. From there you can select and copy the URL in the same way. You can also use the Share
icon on this screen, but doing so will copy all meeting room information to your clipboard, not just the URL. Once the URL is in your clipboard, you can paste it into mail messages or calendar invites, and any mobile user who uses it will launch their meeting in the device application instead of a browser.
