Using the Shared Timer

Meeting host/App initiator

The app initiator is the user that launches the timer in the meeting or webinar. While only a host can lock/unlock the app for other participants, hosts and app initiators have the same capabilities for managing the timer. Host/app initiator capabilities:

  • Set the timer for a pre-defined or custom amount of time

  • Start, pause, and restart the timer

  • Reset the timer to the previous duration or to 00:00

  • View the actions feed

  • Mute/unmute their audio cue

  • Turn on Open Together or close the session

Participants

By default, the Open Together option allows participants to view and interact with the timer. However, the host can limit access to the controls. Participants capabilities:

  • View the timer

  • View the actions feed

  • Controls unlocked (default):

    • Set the timer for a pre-defined or custom amount of time

    • Start, pause, and restart the timer

    • Reset the timer to the previous duration or to 00:00
