Once a meeting is underway, you may need to add additional participants. Learn how to add people to an ongoing meeting.
- When you start a meeting and start it right away, this little window pops up with information about the meeting itself. Notice the name of the meeting I typed in Online Training Strategy with spaces and capitals at the beginning of each word. The name of the meeting has no spaces and no capitals. That's just the nickname. And you can see it can only be used within our company, Training XYZ. So that's the name of the meeting that people can use when they join, but we can invite them a couple of different ways. That's what we're going to explore in this movie. From here, I already talked about copying the joining info. When we click this, it goes to the clipboard. So if you did want to use an email application, for example, and paste that information into the email, that's one option, but there is an add people link down below. Go ahead and give that a click. From here we can enter a name or email. So if you have, for example, in your organization, a number of contacts that you've worked with, you could start typing in names. I'm going to type one in here now. Her name's Michelle Johnson. And as soon as I type in M, I, and C, that name pops up. So I can select her. She's now going to be invited to the meeting, and it's all going to happen right from within Google Meet. I'm also going to add someone who's not in the organization, and that's okay. They don't have to have a G Suite membership. It can be anyone joining so long as I'm the one creating it, I need that G Suite account. So I'm going to type in Karen Leslie. You can see nobody's showing up here from my contacts. She has a Gmail account. And you can see that becomes a recipient that I can add by clicking, and she shows up there. Because it's a Google account, a Gmail account, you can actually see a little bit of information about her. There's her image. And we can continue adding people this way. Click Send Invite. And when we do, the invitation's going to go out to those two people that we've added so far. All right, so if I go up now to the top right-hand corner where I can see the participant list, go ahead and click there, and realize that I've sent out a couple of invitations. I don't see them here, but I can add additional people from here, as well. So I'm going to click add people up here at the top. And there's that same window if I forgot to add somebody. So I'm going to add somebody by the name of Gabe Lopez. I'm going to type in Gabe. There he is. He's part of the organization, so he shows up, and all I have to do is click Send Invite to send it out to him, as well. So the invitation's been sent out to three people. They're getting it. I could call them to say this is urgent. Open up your email, click the link. That's going to be the next step for them in joining our meeting.
