Conference Settings allow the presenter to customize various features within your meeting. These include password-protected meetings, using your own conference calling information including chat and participant options.

Please follow these steps to begin customizing your meeting.

1. When the screen sharing feature is not in use, click the Preferences gear icon.

3. If the presenter will be using a conference calling service other than Vast Conference for the audio portion of the meeting, this information may be entered in the “Use my own conference calling service” section. This feature when enabled allows the presenter and attendees to access this conference calling information during the presentation.
