About Online Meetings

 

Online meetings are particularly helpful to those who cannot get to a local meeting for various reasons. Individuals also find this option favourable when attending a meeting for the first time and not sure what to expect.

Cancellations

Please note that our online meetings are facilitated by volunteers.  Whilst they do all they can to avoid cancellations sometimes this is unavoidable.

How to attend an Online Meeting

Before you attend/What you will need

Everyone participating in the online meetings will need speakers or a headset so that they can hear the Facilitator and other participants talking. The simplest way of checking in advance of the meeting whether your speakers will work, is to visit the BBC News website and check if you can hear videos. If you cannot hear these, you will need help with your computer before coming to the meeting. If you can hear, but do not have a microphone, you can still participate using text.

Accessing the Meeting

To get to the meeting you need to follow the Meeting Participant Link below: 

SMART Meeting

Family & Friends Meeting Tool Time

When entering the room please select the ‘guest’ option and enter your community name.

Important – the room is usually open 15 minutes before the advertised start time. If you are asked to sign in, this means that the room is not yet open, please wait until the ‘guest’ option is available.

Problems accessing the meeting?

If you are struggling to login then you need to ensure the room is open. If you have not been given the ‘guest’ option then the room has not been opened yet. Did you check for cancellation notices? Have you got the time right?

If you get a blank screen when you try and access the meeting, then check you have Adobe Flash installed, you probably already have but it might be out of date. Use this Adobe site to check whether it is installed and up to date.

Check your browser – we recommend Google Chrome.
