🎥 Video explainer: Inviting participants

Here’s Jakob to show you how to invite participants from your room setup, during a session, or with the Google Calendar integration.

1. How to invite participants before a session

Because all Butter sessions are hosted in rooms, you will always be inviting participants to a room. This is a permanent link that will work for any session hosted in that room.

There are three options for inviting participants to your room before a session:


1.1 Copy meeting invite link

The easiest way to invite people to your room is to copy your meeting invite link. From the ‘...’ menu from your main Rooms dashboard:


1.2 Create a Google Calendar invite

From the same location, you can also choose to open up a Google Calendar invite.

Click on 'Invite via Google Calendar' in the ‘Invite’ dropdown menu. This will open up a Google Calendar invite in your default browser. Your Room name and link will automatically be added to the event invite.

1.3 Install the Butter Google Workspace add-on

You can also invite people to a Butter room directly from within Google Calendar.

To start, install the Butter Google Workspace add-on and follow the prompts.

Once this is installed, create a new calendar event, and choose ‘Add video conferencing’.

Click ‘Log in’, log into your Butter account, and then select the relevant room. Close the Butter pop-up window, and your invite link will now be attached to the event invite.

2. Invite participants during a live session

Once you're in a live session, you can still invite people by clicking the ‘Invite’ icon in the top-right-hand corner and copying the room link.
