Adobe Connect Resources
If a meeting room has already been created once, users can simply re-enter the room at any time to begin another meeting.
Creating a Meeting Room for the First Time
After obtaining an Adobe Connect Meeting Creator license from your Adobe Connect Contact, follow these steps to create a meeting room for the first time:
Log on to the Meeting Manager interface on the Adobe Connect server: https://connect.auburn.edu
Select a template for the meeting
You can customize this room just like any other room to meet you needs. However, once the meeting is created, you cannot apply a new template to it. Instead you must create a new meeting by using the new template.
Allowing only registered users access to the room is generally not recommended. Meeting Hosts or Presenters must explicitly add all the approved attendees to the "Current Participants" list, and attendees will only be eligible for the list if they have logged into the Adobe Connect server before. If an approved participant is not added to the Current Participants list, Hosts (only) must be present in the meeting room and explicitly allow all the "accepted guest" to enter.
Allowing anyone who has the meeting URL access to the room is generally recommended. To invite participants, the meeting creator simply notifies everyone of the URL and the time and date for the meeting. To enter the meeting, participants only need to enter the URL in their browser and log in to the system using their Auburn Global ID or Friends of Auburn ID.
If you use this option, however, be sure to distribute the URL only to people who should be meeting in that room. If uninvited guests enter a meeting room, a Host must be present to remove them from the room. Also note that when using this choice for setting up a meeting, the meeting is considered "open" and all the content is available for anyone to view through the Adobe Connect Search tool. The Search tool, located at the top of the Meeting Manager interface, searches across all open meetings for content relevant to the search term(s) and displays a list of all of matching files.
Do NOT include audio conferencing
If you choose not to use this feature, make a note of the meeting URL and click the "Finish" button.
