Waiting Rooms: Set the mood

💡

The Waiting Room is the first thing that any participant will see when they arrive for your workshop. This is your chance to design a delightful welcome for your participants 🎨

Here’s a quick video tour of how to design your waiting room.

Customizing your waiting room

To start customizing your waiting room, head to ‘Setup’ on the room you want to design.

You can customize your waiting room’s image, music, and background color. Here’s a snazzy waiting room in action:

Choose a unique cover image

To add a cover image, you can either upload your own visuals or find one in the GIF or image library.

If you upload your own graphics, you can upload either JPEG, PNG, or GIF (the recommended size is 460x600 pixels!). Don't worry, you can crop any picture of any resolution to make it a perfect fit.

Once you like how it's cropped, click 'Save' and you'll have a beautiful new cover image!

Set the background color

To spice up the waiting room even more, you can pick your favorite background color.

Choose the perfect waiting room music

Set the ambience by adding some music to your waiting room!

Pick one of the tunes from our buttery-smooth collection to put your participants in an upbeat, chill, jazzy, or soulful mood even before entering your workshop!

Or, upload your own mp3 file, to showcase your unique style.

Show the Agenda to guests

To get participants aligned on what your session will cover, you can optionally choose to show the Agenda items in the waiting room.

This defaults to not visible.

Knocking (privacy settings)

Use the knock-knock setting to help keep the right people in and the wrong people out.

When this is enabled, anyone who wants to join your session has to request to join, and wait until you let them in. This makes your room private and protects it from unwanted visitors.

When disabled, participants can freely join your session without needing your approval.

Toggle 'Request to join' on the bottom to enable or disable this setting.

Pro tip: Have lots of people knocking after your large workshop has started? Disable the Waiting Room when you're in the call to let people in without disturbance!

Preview your waiting room

Lastly, you can download your ‘Room graphics’ or click 'Full Preview' to see how things look to participants as they arrive for your workshop! This helps you feel certain that everything looks picture perfect ✨
