Session participants can enter the waiting room by clicking on a link in their session invitation e-mail. Here is a step-by-step guide to that process. The instructions below assume your session host is using our Zoom integration.

 

If you are unsure which platform your session host is using, check to see which application you are being prompted to install. 

  • If you are an account holder, check the lower left hand corner of your Dashboard to see if the button says "Install Zoom" or "Install VSee".
  • If you have been invited to a session, check the lower left hand corner of the waiting room page to see if the button says "Install Zoom" or "Install VSee".

  • TIP: Check the box next to "Automatically join audio by computer when joining a meeting" before clicking "Join Audio by Computer" to avoid having to confirm this every time.
