Access and security management

Why are my colleagues called Bold Hedgehog or Happy Unicorn?

Is it possible to deactivate the random names and ask for the name of my participants ?

It is not possible to ask for the first and last name of your participants, we suggest you use the email identification mode, for this they must have a Beekast account.

You can also choose the username mode, we suggest you specify beforehand to your participants that you want them to enter their first and last names.

Can I delete a person from my Participants list ?

No. You cannot just remove access to a person, nor can you remove them from your list of participants. If you notice that an unwanted person is present in the session, we invite you to set up at least one password and to communicate it to the desired participants.

I have already given my participants the link to my session, but I don't want them to access it straight away. How can I do this ?

You may need to share the links to your session well in advance, but you don't want your participants to go and look at it too soon.

The trick is to close your session. You will still be able to access it to continue preparing it, but anyone else will be told that the session is not yet open!
