Details

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 VSee 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".

3. On the browser page that opens, use the "Enter Waiting Room" button.

4. Wait to be connected. When you have successfully connected, this message will disappear, and your status along the top of the browser page will change to green.

     Connection status turns green

 

 

5. If connecting for the first time on a Windows device, you will be prompted to calibrate your camera, microphone, and speaker settings, and you can review your video quality as you wait for your host. (Mac users are not prompted to calibrate their settings and should immediately see their own video tile.)

Confirm your camera device

If you have more than one camera, and prefer to use another, you can select it from the drop-down menu below your video. (Red arrow above.)

 

Confirm that your speakers are working:
