    What Video Call platform role do I need - Organisation Administrator, Team Administrator

    Apps are tools and functions available in the Video Call platform that can be used and configured to help enhance your clinic’s interface and experience during the consultation.

    To access add-ons go to Apps on the LHS of the clinic dashboard. You will see the available apps for your clinic:                                                          

    Description of the default Video Call apps:

    • File Transfer

    File transfer enables clinicians and callers to transfer a file within a call and needs to be an installed add-on for the clinic, prior to the call. This enables the 'Share a file' tool in Video Call Tools. Other participants will see the name of the file being shared and a download button.

    • Automatic Participant Focus

    Resizes the call screen windows so your local self view screen is smaller and the far end (caller) screen is larger.

    • Highlighters

    Enables highlighter annotation colours when using Video Call Apps & Tools during a call (e.g. collaborating on a PDF or image file or a screen-share).

    • Dual Screen
    • 2 or 3 pane options

    Enables participants to share more than one Video Call App/Tool at a time (for example, an x-ray and awhiteboard).

    This enables 'Grid View' tools in the Video Call.

    • Post Call Links

    Redirects callers to an evaluation survey or web page after the call. 

    • Request Camera

    This appears in Video Call Apps & Tools and allows participants to request an additional camera from a participant during a consult (for example, a medical scope or a second camera).

    • YouTube Video Player
    This appears in Video Call Apps & Tools and allows a YouTube link to be embedded into a call without needing to access YouTube via a browser. Once embedded the video can be played and the playhead moved and this will sync the video and sound for all participants in the call.
    • Healthdirect Waiting Area Consent

    This is where you can configure the important information that is presented to callers prior to entering the Waiting Area. 

    The following apps can be requested for your clinic if required (but are not part of the default package):

    • Phone Callout
    Allows the signed in user to call a phone number from inside their current video call and add a participant as audio only via their phone.
