Connect Jitsi to your Beekast session

Connect Jitsi to your Beekast session

It is now possible to connect your Jitsi account to one of your Beekast sessions to share the link to your videoconference meeting directly in Beekast.

Your participants will be able to find the access link in the home menu of your session, and will only have to click on this link to join the meeting!


Add a Jitsi meeting to your Beekast session


First, go to your session settings by clicking the “Settings” button at the top of your session screen next to “Results”. Next, click on “Connected Applications and Integrations”.

Logging in to your Jitsi account is only valid for one session. It will not automatically connect you to your other sessions!





Jitsi is a tool that allows you to customize your meeting access link. But it does not inform if it is already in use. So you can end up in the same meeting with people you didn't invite. That's why Beekast automatically generates a long random link (composed of numbers and letters) to make your link unique.





You can find the code for this session at the top of the Jitsi screen




You can share your screen, give the hand to a collaborator on the presentation, or open the Jitsi discussion at the bottom of the screen.




You can also activate/deactivate your microphone, leave the conversation, and activate/deactivate your camera.



By clicking on the small arrows associated with the “Microphone” and “Camera” icons, you can access the settings for these two features.


At the bottom of your Jitsi page, you can find the buttons for:


- Switch your guest view


- Access your Jitsi session login information.


- Via the 3 small dots: Access your Jitsi session settings, record your meeting, mute all participants, and more!





Dissociate your Jitsi account from Beekast

-Go to your account, "Connected applications and integrations" section

-Click on the red trash can

-Confirm

-Note that all meetings created from Beekast will be deleted
