There are three types of meeting:

  • ad hoc meetings: ad hoc meetings start immediately. You create an ad hoc meeting when you are in a call; simply press add participant on your control panel:

    You can then add another person to your call. You can have up to 20 participants in an ad hoc meeting. Ad hoc meetings are also known as QuickMeet meetings
  • scheduled meetings: a scheduled meeting begins at a particular time. Participants receive invites and instructions on how to join. Participants can join a scheduled meeting in the following ways:
    • click a link to join from a browser
    • download Breeze or the Starleaf app and click to join
    • join using a StarLeaf room or desktop system
    • join using third-party video conferencing equipment
    • join as an audio-only participant from a telephone (PSTN)
    • The meeting does not automatically end at the scheduled end time, and will in fact continue until everyone disconnects from the call

  • permanent meetings: This is the same as a scheduled meeting but without a date and time. A permanent meeting is a virtual meeting room that anyone can dial into at any time (sometimes known as a meet-me). Permanent meetings have the same features as scheduled meetings (invites, interoperability, PSTN dial-in, etc.). The dialing details never change and the meeting is always joinable

Meeting invites

The people that you invite to a scheduled meeting receive a meeting-invite email that tells them how to join the meeting:

If your participants are StarLeaf Breeze users or have access to a StarLeaf meeting room, they can join easily using the Join Now button.

For participants who are not already StarLeaf users, the meeting-invite email gives:

  • A link to join your meeting directly from a browser
  • A link to information about how to join from third-party video conferencing equipment
  • A link that they can use to download StarLeaf Breeze or the StarLeaf app as a guest user
  • Details of how to dial into your meeting from a phone
