How To Create and Schedule Yuja Video Conference Sessions

Video Conference - Meet Now 

The "Meet Now" feature allows users to begin a meeting immediately. A link will be emailed to the contacts for the meeting, allowing them to enter the live meeting. During a "Meet Now" session, the notification icon on the top of the YuJa screen will turn purple and users may also join through the pop-up. Instructors can also copy and email out the Guest Link as necessary.
