Moderators in NWS Jitsi

In our Jitsi app, only one moderator can create video conference rooms. To do this, he creates a conference room and to open it, he must enter his user name and password. After his successful entry, all other participants can join the call without entering a password.

Creating more moderators

By default, an admin user is always created when starting a Jisti app. This user is not editable (name and password cannot be changed).

However, additional moderators can be created. The number of possible moderators depends on the started plan. The higher the plan, the more moderators can be created.

In the Customer Interface, go to Settings on your Jitisi app.

At the point "Customer Settings" you can now simply enter the desired username and user password and then add the user with "Add User". 9 Moderatoren anlegen.png

Starting a video conference

Log in to your Jitsi app. 
In the start menu you will find the input field to name your videoconference room (1). Enter the desired name here or just use the randomly suggested name. Go to "Start Meeting".

On the start menu you will also find a history of recent meetings (2). If you want to use one of the old meeting rooms again, just click on the room and it will open. 10 Grundmenu.png
