Mentoring Platform New Feature – Video Chat

We are delighted to announce our new free to use Video Chat feature that is now inbuilt into our mentoring platform. So, if you enjoy doing your mentoring meetings remotely you can now arrange and conduct them using the mentoring platform, without the need to have a Zoom, Teams etc. account.

The platform now has a Meet/video tool which can be used to arrange meetings and to record and store meeting notes and actions.

The inbuilt video chat tool provides the capability to have an online video meeting directly from the platform. You simply select Video Chat when you create the meeting.

When you are ready to start the meeting Click on Video Chat and follow the instructions from there. All you need is the link to your video chat room meeting and a web browser, no other software is needed.

Video chat works on all modern browsers. If you decide to screen share during a video chat, then we recommend using Chrome. Sharing a browser tab gives the best experience. Select any "Chrome Tab" that does not say "Video Chat".

The video chat will function on mobile devices.

You can download the meeting invite to your calendar and you can join from your mobile using the link attached to the calendar.

If you log into the mentoring platform from your mobile, you can access video chat directly from the meeting on your relationship dashboard.

You can also click on the link on your meeting email alert on your mobile and it will take you into the meeting.

We hope that you will find this new feature beneficial.
