One of the key parts of organizing or hosting any event, is inviting people. When it comes to inviting people to your Video Chat, Video Meeting or Video Conference we wanted to make it really simple. So, here are things that we did that we hope will make it easier to invite people to your call, particularly a group of people.
Now, when you start a call by clicking on “Call now”, you will see one of two invite screens.
The first screen (click to enlarge the image below) is what you will see if you have added contacts to your TokBox contact list (which we recommend you do).
Simply click on people in your contact list and they will be added to the call. If there is someone else you want to invite, but they are not in your contact list, you can simply type in their email address. Click “Invite contacts” and if they are an IM contact it will call them immediately and if they are only an email contact we will send them an email with the link for your call and any message you have added.
You can still copy the call URL and send it round, or even post it directly to Twitter and Facebook too by clicking on those icons in the invite screen.
If you don’t have any contacts in your TokBox contact list, you will see a different screen (below). This simply allows you to add email addresses and once you click “Invite Contacts” we will send them an email with your call URL and any message you have added. As simple as that.
As always, let us know if you have any questions by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
