Creating A Breeze Meeting _____________Tech Tip

A Breeze Meeting allows a user to lead a virtual meeting through voice, video, text, and other media.  A meeting gives the Host overarching control over the experience while effectively communicating ideas, documents, and media to attendees.  A meeting also allows other users to act as presenters, with the host remaining in control of their presentation privileges.  Users will generally need a URL (or web address) or a direct l ink to the meeting to access and participate in the meeting.  A meeting can also be set to  appear in a user’s “ Scheduled Meetings” field.
