Scheduling a Glance Session in Advance

Glance is designed to be used on-the-fly as the visual enabler for any conversation, so you shouldn't need to schedule a session most of the time. Unlike traditional meeting tools, Glance is simple enough to start up and connect in the middle of a meeting or over a conference call. It only takes a few seconds for everyone to join. We recommend taking this approach whenever you can.

If however, you are giving a presentation where it's just you talking to a group instead of a freeform conversation, you might want to give everyone the details to join a Glance session in advance so that you can just focus on presenting instead of talking them through joining. There are two ways to do this.

Option 1: Host a Session Without a Key

If you're not sharing any sensitive information during your meeting, this is the easiest way to host a session. Just send a message to your group that says:

Join my Glance session at http://example.glance.net
Dial in: 702-589-8350 PIN: 5555555

Before your call, go to your Glance Settings and under Session Key, choose No Key. Your guests will join as soon as they get to your Glance address.

Option 2: Send a Session Key in Advance

If you are sharing sensitive information during your meeting, it's better to lock it with a key. Send a message to your group that says something like:

Join my Glance session at http://example.glance.net
Session Key: 1234 [or whatever you want it to be]
Dial in: 702-589-8350 PIN: 5555555

Before your call, go to your Glance Settings and under Session Key, choose I'll give guests a key in advance. Ask me for it when session starts. When you start your session, enter the key you made up in the message and the session will start with that key. Your guests will have everything they need in the message to join.

You can also include the session key in a link, so your guests don't have to type it in. For example, the link http://yourname.glance.net?key=1167 will take each guest directly into the session hosted by yourname.glance.net with key 1167.
