Update: We now have the audio conferencing and video conferencing facilities within our Zoho Meeting platform and hence the below integration with Skype is no longer required (available). Visit our integrations page to know more about the various integrations available in Zoho Meeting.
A lot many new features have gone in to Zoho Meeting since its Beta launch. A few of them below.
We have added the ability to do Skype conferencing in Zoho Meeting. This allows you to converse with your participants.
When you click on Create Meeting, there is a ‘Skype’ checkbox (beside the Presenter’s section). Enabling it will get you a new column. Just enter the Skype ids of people whom you want to include in the conference.
You can also decide when you want to start the Skype conferencing. After you create a Meeting, you will get a button, Skype Conference.
On clicking that, users will be automatically dialed on Skype and included in the conferencing system!
Buddy List Auto Fill
Zoho Meeting also remembers the names/email addresses of the participants you have recently invited. When you type in the first few letters, there is an auto-fill/suggest box which helps fill the names easily.
Inviting Users to your Meeting Session
One feedback we receive quite often is, ‘How do I invite users to a meeting?’. There are multiple ways you can invite people to a Zoho Meeting session, at various stages of the meeting session.
1) When creating a meeting, you can specify their email addresses in ‘Participants’ section
2) After creating a Meeting, there is an link to ‘Invite‘ people. Clicking on that will give you multiple ways to invite people – standard Zoho Meeting invitation through email, sending a link using your Mail Client or IM, or using the Meeting Key to join
3) After installing the Agent/Presenter, there is an invite icon in the toolbar. Clicking on it will enable you invite people, giving their mail id.
