Enter a Virtual Room

Now that you are ready to start your online collaboration, this article will help you to choose the appropriate option to enter the virtual room based on what you need to use it for. 

Note that some user roles do not have permission to enter live collaboration (Work with Others) mode without an admin in the room. In such cases, you will be redirected to a waiting page.


Enter the Room

On the organisation page, choose the room you wish to enter by selecting the room from the rooms list, and make sure you are on the Enter tab. 

Before entering the room, you can see the room members list and manage room members under Members or by clicking Manage room members. You can leave messages for your room members under Chat.

Cannot find the room you want to enter? It may be under another organisation.


Choose How You Want to Use the Room

a) Work with Others: ✔ Audio, video on this device

If you want to work with your room members with video chat, select Work with others.

You MUST choose this option to see and hear others in the virtual room. You can switch off your own audio and video after entering the room.

This is the most commonly used mode of entering the room, for 100% online collaboration on a single, all-in-one device for video chat and writing/drawing.

b) Work on My Own

If you are not planning to collaborate with others, select  Work on my own. You will enter the Library mode. This mode is free (non-chargeable), so you can enter at any time you want to, by yourself.

You can edit, upload and view documents currently in the room. You will not appear as being in the room, will not be affected by presentation/sync screen modes, and generally have the freedom to work by yourself. 

Use this mode for doing post-collaboration revision or preparing the room for the next live collaboration.

Next Steps:
