Adding Participants

When creating or editing an Adobe Connect meeting you can manually add participants to your room in two ways: add individuals that exist within the D2L classlist and add Guests. If the individual you want to add is not enrolled in the D2L classlist, you will have to add them to the meeting as a Guest.  To learn more about adding participants to an Adobe Connect meeting, click the link below that corresponds with the type of enrollment you would like to do.


Please Note: It is not possible to add participants to an Office Hours meeting. Everybody enrolled in the course in D2L will have access to the Office Hours meeting by default.

Add Guests to an Adobe Connect Meeting

To add an individual to your Adobe Connect Meeting we advise NOT using the Add Guest button (shown in the screenshot above) for a variety reasons. Instead, we suggest you do the following:




1. From the Meetings List page, click the drop down arrow to the right of the meeting you wish to add guests to, then select Edit from the drop down menu.

Configure Meeting room to allow guests by expanding the optional section, allowing anyone with guest acces, saving, and opening the custom URL2. If the Optional fields are not displayed, click the drop down arrow to the left of the word Optional to show the options.


3. Within the Access area, place a bullet next to Anyone who has the URL for the meeting.


4. Click the blue Save button.


5. Click the blue button to the right of the Custom URL field to open Copy to Clipboard page.

Copy the highlighted URL to the clipboard using Ctrl + C (for PC) or Command + C (for Mac), then select OK

6. With the URL highlighted (as shown in the screenshot at right), copy the URL using Ctrl + C (PC) or Command + C (Mac)

7. Click the blue OK button.

8. Open your preferred email account, and start a new email message.

9. Add the email address(es) of all desired guests to the To field.

10. Type Adobe Connect Meeting Invitation in the Subject line.

11. In the body of the email message type your desired greeting and details of when the meeting(s) is/are to be held, then paste the Custom URL to your Adobe Connect meeting using Ctrl + V (PC) or Command + V (Mac).

12. When you have finished composing your email click the Send button to complete the message. All recipients will now be able to join your meeting.
