We’ve recently introduced a new advertising bar for free accounts. This will enable Vyew to keep the service free. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please upgrade to a basic “plus” plan to remove ads.
If you have multiple email addresses, it is convenient to link them all together in the Vyew system. If someone invites you to a room and send the invite to either of your addresses, they can all be accessed by one Vyew account. For this purpose we allow you to create multiple Email Aliases for your main Vyew account.
I may have three different email addresses: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com. I use firstname.lastname@example.org to login to my Vyew account. My colleagues may have all three of those emails in their address book. When they go to invite me to a Vyew Room, they may invite email@example.com. When this happens an unregistered guest account for firstname.lastname@example.org is created. When I enter that room I will come in as email@example.com, not as firstname.lastname@example.org (which is my main login).
To solve this problem I will create two Email Aliases (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) linked to my main Vyew login (email@example.com).
How to create an Email Alias
- Go to the Email Alias Manager
- You may be prompted to login. Make sure you are logged in as your main Vyew login address.
- Add your other email addresses with the form
- A confirmation email will go out and you must click the link in the email to complete the process.
If I have two registered Vyew accounts already, how do I merge and link them together?
If the email alias you would like to create already exists as a registered account, then all the data and rooms will be merged over to the main account. For example, if my main account is firstname.lastname@example.org, and I create an alias called email@example.com, then any rooms owned by firstname.lastname@example.org will be then transferred to email@example.com.
There is a major bug which we are working on and will release an emergency fix immediately (by today, Thurs, May 3rd). The issue is that a large number of media object (image, document, etc) inside a room are not editable or movable. No data is lost, it is just no editable. We greatly apologize for this huge inconvenience and are working hard to get this fixed ASAP.
The reason this is happening is because our database reached a limit on the ID numbers for media objects. We are changing the datatype to account for more media objects and are testing the fix right now. We hope to release sometime during the day today, Thursday, May 3rd.
