Instant Meeting with Meet Now

 

You can start, edit, or cancel your training session from either confirmation emails or from your training sessions page.

  

If your Training Center website includes the instant training session option, you can start a training session at any time, without the need to schedule it first. An instant, or impromptu, training session can include an audio conference.

  

Once you start an instant training session, you can optionally invite attendees. Each invited attendee receives an invitation email message that includes information about the training session and a link that the attendee can select to join the training session.

  

Note


 

To receive a callback, an attendee must have a direct phone line. If a receptionist answers the call, or the attendee's phone system uses a recorded greeting for incoming calls, the attendee cannot receive a callback. However, an attendee without a direct phone line can join an audio conference by calling a call-in phone number, which is always available in the Session window, on both the Info tab and in the Session Information dialog box.
