    Set up and attend a Video Call meeting

    What platform role do I need - clinic team member (and invited guests)

    Meetings are video calls held in a clinic meeting room and are different to a Video Call consultation with your patient. Multiple callers can easily access a meeting room at one time - you can have a maximum of 5 participants in a single video call meeting. If you're a team member you can access the meeting rooms in a clinic at any time and invite a guest or meet with fellow signed in team members. You may also be invited to a meeting as a guest, in which case you'll receive an invitation to attend. 

    Attending a meeting

    1. If you were sent an email invitation to attend a meeting, simply click the Join the Meeting button in the email.

    If you didn't receive an email invitation, but you are a team member in the clinic holding the meeting, you can log into your video call account, navigate to the clinic where the meeting is being held and enter the meeting room at any time. 
    2. You will be requested to allow the use of your camera and microphone for this meeting.
    Click Allow to continue.

    If you do not see the Allow button, try restarting your camera.
    If restarting the camera does not resolve your issue, you may have blocked your camera or microphone in your browser. Click on view help or visit: https://help.vcc.healthdirect.org.au/stuck-at-restart-camera
    3. When you select Join as a guest you will be asked to enter your:
    • First and last name
    • Take a picture to introduce yourself

    If you have an existing Video Call account you can sign into that through the Sign In button at the bottom of either page. 

    Click Continue to proceed
    4. As a guest you will be placed into a call queue until the person who initiated the meeting accepts you into the call.

    You can change the call queue music for yourself. 
    5. Once you are accepted into the meeting room your video call will start.
     

    Inviting a guest to a video call meeting

    1. Click on the meeting room in your clinic you wish to enter.
    2. You will arrive at the meeting room entry page. You can enter the meeting room at any time if you are a logged in team member with Meeting Room access.

    3. You can invite a guest into the meeting room. There are a few ways to do this:




    • Click on Send invitation - Add the guest's email address and decide whether you want them to come at a particular time (scheduled) or as soon as they receive the invitation. If you click on Yes you can schedule the meeting. Click on send to send the email invitation.


    • Click on Copy the link - the link copies to your clipboard and you can add it to an email, messaging app etc to invite a guest.

    • Click on Share - from here you can copy the link and send email invitation but can also:
    • Launch using a button - Put a customised button on your intranet, for example, so that team members can enter the room from there. You may need your webmaster to do this.

    • Embed into a page - use the embed code to embed a link to the meeting room - you may need your webmaster to do this.
