You can set up a Web Content link that allows site participants to log directly into your Connect Meeting room.

To create a link to a Connect Meeting room, first add a Web Content item to your site. See ARCHIVED: Adding, editing, or deleting a Web Content item.

For the Web Content URL, enter the following, replacing meetingname with the name of your Connect Meeting:

  https://connect.iu.edu/meetingname?guestName=${USER_FIRST_NAME}%20${USER_LAST_NAME}

Note: The name of your Connect Meeting can be either a custom URL you gave when you created it, or the default meeting URL that was assigned to you.

The link to your Connect room will appear in your site's menubar. Clicking the link will automatically log site participants into your Connect room using their full names.
