Can I invite a third person to my 1:1 meeting?
  • You can invite other people, such as your colleagues, to join the meeting
  • To do so, go to your Meetings page and click the Invite guests button that is visible in all your upcoming meetings
  • A pop-up window will appear with a direct link you can send to anyone you want

Why can't I request meetings with some participants?
  • Participants available for meeting requests are indicated with the Request meeting button. If the button is gray:
    • You may not have registered for any 1:1 meetings sessions
    • The participant you want to meet might not have registered for any 1:1 meetings sessions
