When creating a Roundtable or Boardroom (meeting) within a Social27 event, you can select from several different meeting providers to “power” your meeting. These providers include:
If you select Microsoft Teams, the page will reload, and you will see Microsoft Teams at the top of the New meeting page:
When an attendee launches the meeting from the Social27 event, they will be pushed to a new tab in which the Microsoft Teams meeting will load.
If you select Zoom, you will be taken to a Zoom sign-in page. Once you sigh in, you will be asked to authorize the connection to your Zoom account. Click Pre-approve, then Authorize. You will then be redirected to Social27’s New meeting page, which will now show that your meeting is powered by Zoom.
When an attendee launches the meeting from the Social27 event, they will be pushed to a new tab in which the Zoom meeting will load.
If you select Social27 as your meeting provider, you’ll be taken to the New meeting page and can begin entering your meeting information.
Social27 meetings are the “native” Social27 meeting solution and are powered by MeetUp. As when using other meeting providers, you can use your device’s video and microphone to connect with other attendees, share your screen, and view other attendees.
If you don’t want to use Teams, Zoom, or Social27, you can insert a custom meeting link to direct attendees to click on. This allows you to use meeting providers such as Google Meet, WebEx, etc. To create a meeting with a custom link follow these steps:
- Create a meeting using your external meeting provider service (such as Zoom, Google Meet, WebEx, etc.).
- Create a new meeting in your Social27 event and select Custom Link as the meeting provider.
- Copy the meeting URL from your external meeting provider and paste it in the Meeting Link are of the New meeting page in the Social27 event.
Note: Make sure the time and time zone of your external meeting matches the meeting time you enter in the Social27 platform.
