At the top of the dashboard there are 3 status buttons:
Inform, Start and Stop.
When the inform button is selected, participants will not be able to log in.
If they type in the 9-digit ID they will receive a message informing them of the meeting/voting start time.
To allow access to the meeting click the start button.
Anyone with a valid username and password (and guests, if that feature has been enabled) will now be able to log in to the meeting.
Once the meeting or voting period have concluded and no further logins are allowed, select the stop button. This will also eject anyone currently logged in to the meeting.
