The Home Screen
SignalWire Work allows for multiple conference rooms to be available to use at one time. Like in a physical office, these rooms are often used to collaborate with coworkers, work silently, or host networking events.
The Home Screen allows visitors to see the activity in each room through room previews. Room previews show the name of the room, a list of who is currently participating, and a short video clip of the participants who are currently in the conference.
You can join conferences from the home screen by clicking the blue "Join Room" button at the top right of the room preview.
If you who know the name or number of a private conference room, you can call in by using the dialer at the top of the page.
When you join a conference from a direct link to that room, you will bypass the Home Screen and will automatically be added to the call.
- To see room previews or join a new room when already in a room, use the Room Navigator.
Opening a New Tab
If you would like to see the Home Screen while you are already in a call, you can click New Tab in the System Settings menu. A new tab of the Home Screen will open in your browser. The New Tab feature is useful if you prefer the view of the Home Screen over the Room Navigator and would like to see room previews while you're in a call.
