Influencing Meet behaviour through URL fragments¶
Users are able to fine tune how other users will join a meeting by modifying the url they send to other participants.
The following examples use the url
https://kopano.dev/meet/ as a base.
Allow guest users to join meetings¶
By default only users that are able to log into Meet can join a call. Administrators are able to configure Meet to make it possible to invite external users. At this moment before sharing such a guest enabled room with external participants the fragment
guest=1 needs to be added to the url.
|guest=0||Disallow joining by guests|
|guest=1||Allow guests to join|
By default when a guest joins a meeting a randon generated name (using a combination of a random adjective and noun) is assigned to them. When inviting guests user could already provide a (real) name for the guest.
|name=John%20Doe||Guest will be shown with the Name “John Doe” within the meeting|
Automatically join meetings¶
By default users will first be presented with a “landing page” when joining a room where they can quickly check if their camera is working. By adding the following to the url users will automatically join a meeting.
|auto=1||Automactially join with audio only|
|auto=2||Automcaticlly join with audo & video enabled|
Disable camera or microphone for participants¶
By default users joining a meeting will have their microphone and camera enabled (or just microphone enabled when just joining via audio). By adding the following to the url uses will join a meeting e.g. with their microphone “muted” by default (so they have to unmute it before speaking).
|mute=1||“Mute” microphone for user|
|mute=2||“Mute” video for user|
|mute=3||“Mute” microphone and video for user|
Combining multiple settings¶
Multiple of the above settings can easily be combined by chaining them with the
The following example will auto join a guest with the name “John Doe” into a meeting with the microphone of John muted by default.
