Tips About Locking Your Meeting

In most cases, locking a meeting through any method applies to all meeting components: voice, video and web. However, there are some exceptions.

If you lock the meeting from inside the web meeting room before anyone has joined the voice or video meeting, the web meeting is not locked. You will have to unlock and relock the meeting after someone has joined the voice or video meeting.

You cannot prevent people from requesting entry to the voice meeting.

Since a breakout session is a voice feature, you cannot lock it from within the web meeting room.

If you lock the meeting by using your telephone or the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Phone View on your Cisco Unified IP Phone, you cannot prevent people from requesting entry. You also cannot specify the message that new arrivals hear or see when they attempt to join the meeting.

You can mix and match the methods you use to perform various actions, as long as the method you use can perform the feature that you want to use. For example, you can use the feature in the web meeting room to lock the meeting, and admit participants by using your telephone keypad.
