Manage guests in your meeting

Meeting Sidebar

At the top of the meeting sidebar is the Meeting panel; it lists all participants in the meeting. If you connected your Google or Outlook calendar, you will see "No meeting" or the calendar event title and start and end date above your name. Click:

  • Your own name to manage your meeting experience
  • Another person’s name to view profile information (name, email address, and phone number).
  • View all invitees to view a list of all invited guests or only absent guests (Google or Outlook calendar integration required).
  • The Invite (+) button to have the meeting dial out to a guest, call out to a video room system, or to copy the meeting details (URL, dial-in numbers, and (optional) room system connection details) and share with others.

Tip: If there are a large number of guests in the meeting, click the search button to find a guest in the list.

Manage meeting guests

If you are the host, you have additional participant controls. Click a guest's name to:

  • Mute the guest
  • Promote the guest to presenter and let them mute other guests, share their own screen, files, and open a whiteboard (if open sharing is off)
  • Demote a presenter back to guest role
  • Dismiss the guest from the meeting

Host Options

Manage video room guests

With GlobalMeet VRC, video room participants can join the meeting using the SIP URI or H.323 address provided by the meeting host or by being invited into the room directly. Each video room system gets its own video stream and has its own row in the Guests list. The name is taken from the video system settings or provided by the host when being connected.

Host and presenters can mute or dismiss a VRC guest. You cannot promote a VRC guest or view profile information.
