Provide Meeting Details
After you have created your meeting and selected a meeting provider, you can enter all meeting details.
What is the meeting about?
The Topic field will be auto-populated with your name as the meeting host.
The Description is not required, but can provide attendees useful information about the meeting’s purpose, agenda, etc.
Include Area(s) of Interest (AOI) to help attendees who are searching for meetings they might be interested in joining.
Select the date, time, time zone, and duration for your meeting
The maximum meeting duration is 90 minutes. If you want your discussion to last longer than 90 minutes, you can create multiple meetings and label them Part 1, Part 2, etc.
If your meeting is powered by Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or another meeting provider, make sure that the time zone of the meeting you create in your external platform matches the time zone you enter here in the Social27 platform. For more information about time zones, check out this article.
How many attendees do you want to invite?
You can create different types of meetings based on how many people you would like to invite to your meeting:
- One-on-one meeting: one attendee in addition to yourself
- Roundtable: up to six attendees (including yourself)
- Boardroom: either up to 15 attendees (if using the Social27 meeting provider) or up to 30 attendees if using Teams, Zoom or another provider (including yourself)
Who can see the meeting?
Use these options to set who should see your meeting: everyone or only invited attendees.
If you select Everyone, your meeting will appear in the Public section of the Roundtables page, and anyone can join the meeting.
The platform will tell you how many attendees you can invite, based on the meeting type and provider you selected previously.
After you’ve added all meeting details, click the Create button at the bottom of the page.
