Create a meeting

A Lifesize Cloud meeting is perfect for regularly scheduled or recurring events. No one needs to initiate the meeting; it is always available, and participants can join at any time.

  1. Select meetings to open the Meetings tab, then click Create a Meeting.
  2. Enter a meeting name and description (optional, but helpful). At this point, Web App users only may opt to require a passcode (Desktop App users, see #4).
    • Require a passcode to join the meeting: Everyone in your Lifesize Cloud account can see your meetings in the Meetings tab, but you can increase security by including a passcode to join. The passcode is automatically included in email and calendar invitations. All participants must enter a 4-10 digit numerical code to join the meeting. NOTE: Group chat is not available in meeting rooms using a passcode.
  3. Click Submit.
  4. Set advanced options (Desktop App only):

    • Choose a moderator: Click > and type in the name of the person you wish to assign as moderator. The moderator can remove participants as well as mute and unmute all participants in a meeting. Participants must unmute their own microphones to be heard.
    • Choose a lecturer: Click > and type in the name of the person you wish to assign as lecturer. Participants see the main speaker but not one another. The lecturer can remove participants.

Meeting owners

If you create a meeting, you are the meeting owner. As the owner, you can remove participants during the meeting. You can also edit and delete your meetings. Click once on the meeting name to open the meeting details tab. Click Delete or click Edit to change the name, description, or any advanced options.

Meeting owners have access to all recordings of their recurring meeting and they determine the audience for their recordings within the Lifesize Cloud account. Admins determine whether people outside the Lifesize Cloud account can view recordings.

Admins can edit and delete all meetings.
