Inviting and Sharing Rooms – Overview

Three types of invitations

  • Open Access – Allow a user anytime, until you un-invite them. Usually for asynchronous collaboration.
  • Timed Access – Allow a user immediately, for a limited time. Usually for synchronous collaboration.
  • Scheduled Access – Allow a user access only during a specific time. Usually for presentations.
