Host Controls for Bluescape Meetings

Support Note
This topic may not be relevant to all Bluescape members and may not apply to all Organizations. If you’re unsure whether your organization has any of these features, please reach out to your IT department.

Bluescape meeting hosts have several features to make the most of their meeting experience.

Before starting the meeting

Creating a new meeting

From the top-left of your Bluescape Home page, select New Meeting.

The Your meeting room options page appears.

Auto-admit participants toggle

As a host, you can auto-admit participants to your meetings. If the Auto admit participants is toggled on, participants joining your meeting do not require your approval to join your meeting.

Enable the waiting room

When Auto admit participants is toggled off and you start your meeting, the Waiting room is automatically enabled. You receive a notification when a participant accesses your meeting URL, and you, as the host, must approve the participant before they can join the meeting.

Auto admit participants

With Auto admit participants toggled to on, anyone with your meeting invitation and/or meeting room URL may join without requiring host approval.

Allow workspace editing

The Allow workspace editing toggle allows you to grant participants edit access to the content in your workspace. By enabling this, you allow all participants to use the meeting workspace freely for a period of 60 minutes.

Meeting workspace

Use the Meeting workspace selection to host your meeting from a blank or an existing
workspace.

Copy meeting room URL

To quickly copy your Meeting URL to your clipboard to send to a participant, select the :copymeetingurl: (Copy meeting URL) button.

Meeting Info

When you select the Meeting info button, a popup appears with your meeting specifics, including manual dial-in information and a Copy meeting info button that you can use to copy your meeting information to your clipboard to paste into a meeting invitation.
