The Base Meeting Room provides an instant, secure video conferencing feature for your office and can be accessed from the shortcut menu on the Base dashboard when you log in. Everyone gets instance access to the same meeting room (it's almost like your virtual boardroom).
Do I need special software?
No, the software works through most modern browsers including Google Chrome and accesses your computer's camera and microphone to participate in meetings (much like other meeting software). Should you however want to access this through your mobile phone or tablet a small app needs to be installed, simply follow the instructions when you open the meeting room.
Who has access?
Everyone in your office with a Base account can click on the Meeting Room to join a video conference call.
Can I share my screen?
Yes, simply click on the share screen icon on the bottom left if you want to do a presentation:
You can then choose from various options including sharing your entire screen or just a specific browser tab:
Can I invite external guests?
You can simply copy the share link that pops up at when you open the Meeting Room or click on the info button bottom right.
⚠ Please be aware that that guests will have access to your Meeting Room for the entire day through that link. The link is automatically reset at midnight 00:00.
Is it secure?

I can only see a grey screen when I open the meeting room?
