Sessions in Vevox are controlled by the Meeting Status. This is the place where you start your meeting as well as stop your meeting.
The meeting status will appear in the top right-hand corner of your dashboard.
A session can either be;
- Started: The session is active and available for participants to join.
- Waiting: The session is ready to begin, participants can join the session but cannot access the messaging or polling.
- Stopped: The session is inactive and cannot be found by participants.
When you first create a new session it will always begin in the waiting state.
If you attempt to start a session whilst you already have one running you will be warned that by continuing to start this session will result in the other active session being put into a waiting state.
Any participants that are connected to a session will be disconnected when the session is stopped.
How long can my meeting stay open?
Your session can stay open for as long as you wish, or until you start a new session and put it in 'started mode', in which case the current meeting will go move into the waiting state.
If you are trying to start a new meeting, but it won't start and stays in 'waiting mode', try refreshing your page.
