Joining via Meeting ID and Password

How to Find a Meeting ID and a Password

First and foremost, you should find the meeting ID and a password. Normally they are given to you by the meeting organizer. It might be a URL or be in the message, it might also be an invitation to an e-meeting that is placed in your mailbox. In any case, you should not leave those two things somewhere in plain sight: keep them in a safe place and do not share them on social media in order to make your virtual room as private as possible.

How to Enter a Meeting ID

First of all, you should open you e-meeting application and should look for ‘Join a Meeting’ option. You should click it and enter the meeting ID. It should be done exactly as it was given to you without any spaces and/or any extra characters. The idea behind such an ID being given to you is that a company which designed this app has a huge server that in this specific case ties this specific number with this specific virtual room. The virtual room, in its turn, is tied to the meeting ID provided to you.

How do I Enter a Password

After doing the previous point, the website should move you to another page where you should enter you meeting password. Normally they are quite nasty and case-sensitive, so you should be careful. Normally both Meeting ID and a Password are written with you being notified that they are case-sensitive: DO NOT ADD any lower cases in a capital letter field, and vice-versa.

How do I Configure My Hardware

Normally, before entering the meeting room, you are suggested to test your audio and hardware. It is normally a good idea to do so: if you won’t be able to do something right now, you surely won’t be able to do it later during a meeting.

What else

After you enter your room, you should look around and see what are the options available to you, such as: chat, muted/unmute, raise your hand, etc. Knowing how to use all those things allows you to better participate in discussion.
