Admit Students Into the Room

In this example, the student has just entered the lobby.

Once in the lobby:

  1. Student clicks on the Ask to Join button.

  2. When a student first asks to be let in you will get two notifications:

    (1) You will hear what sounds like a knock on the door. (no visuals, just sound).

    (2) A green message box will pop up.

    Note: Because only one student is asking to be let in, you can click on the Admit text to let them in. Otherwise, you will need to go into the Participants panel.

    If more then one student is waiting to be let in, the green message box will look like this:

  3. To admin your student(s), go to Nav Bar > Participants.

  4. Click on the Admit button next to each student's name.

  5. Your student(s) will be transported into the room from the lobby.
