There are three types of meeting:

  • 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 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

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • You can create a permanent meeting from the Meetings page in the StarLeaf Portal:
