We’ve been working on our new apps for iPhone and Android for quite a while. The challenges were daunting, but we’re pleased with how they turned out. Are you ready to give them a whirl? This post will help you get a quick start.
The app installs just like any other (and it’s pretty quick). After that, you’ll be able to use the app to log in to your account, set up meetings, and even run meetings as a presenter. And participants can use it to attend your meetings as well.
Enter a meeting
When you log in to your account on your smartphone, you’ll see meetings you’ve already set up. Tap any of them to set up or start the meeting.
You won’t be able to create a new future meeting (that still has to be done on the desktop version) but you can tap the Ad hoc button at upper right to start a meeting and invite participants to join you immediately.
When you tap the Join button, you’re asked whether you want to Start Meeting or Prepare Meeting. (If this is starting to sound very familiar, you’re right. To reduce your learning curve, we mirrored the desktop version as closely as possible.)
Set up a meeting
At the top of the screen, tap the Details icon on the left:
- Camera and voice: Switch them on or off.
- Presentation/Multimedia: Any documents loaded from your desktop version are available in the app.
- Whiteboard: Use handy tools to diagram, draw, and make notes.
- Browser sharing: Navigate to any Web page you’d like to share.
- Upload photo: In the Presentations/Multimedia tab, upload a photo from your smartphone.
Click the Person icon at upper right to see those you’ve already invited. Click the +Invite button at upper right to choose people to invite from your smartphone Contacts directory, Facebook account, or Twitter account.
Participants can join your meeting on desktop ClickMeeting as usual, or they can download the ClickMeeting smartphone app to log in. They’ll need the Meeting ID from their invitation.
From the Meeting list, tap Join then choose Start Meeting. Once you’re inside, tap the Details icon at upper left to turn on your Camera and Microphone and access the presentation tools. If you want to record your meeting, look for the Record button at the bottom of the same screen.
You can also start a meeting from the Prepare Meeting screen. Tap the Details icon at upper left and look for the Start meeting and Record buttons at the bottom of the screen.
Running the meeting
Most of the features of the full desktop version are available:
- Instant invitations
- Full audio-video streaming
- Control of camera and microphone
- One-tap recording
- Live chat
- Presentation and document viewing
- Browser sharing
Full details and reports are available inside your desktop account.
