What changed 

This update included new features, improvements and minor bug fixes.

  • In direct Zoom meeting and Zoom embed sessions, added a direct link to the Zoom meeting as well. Right below the Join button. The text should be this: "Could not join the meeting? Here's the direct link: https://" So, people who could not join it, can join via desktop. Display the link below the Check-Out button as well. Added
  • In breakout rooms, allowed adding up to 35 participants. However, only first six participants would be displayed around the table diagram as it is right now. Added
  • In video gallery, once a video is saved, and then edited, the changes are not saved. Fixed
  • In 1-to-1 and group video call, instead of opening video meeting in the new tab, it now opens it within the group chat window above the group chat and decrease the group chat window so they can still see the new chat messages. Displayed a close button in the top right corner to close the group video call window. Fixed
  • In Posters and sub-session videos, displayed the posters/videos right below the sub-session title. This is a feedback we received from users complaining that they have to do a lot of up and down to browse through the posters which is not very great UX. Fixed
  • In chat and Q&A tab, updated the chat-box height to increase automatically as they type... This ensures they do not have to look for typing error in that small space. Updated
  • In chat and Q&A, added the "Send Message" icon besides the user's name if Send Message button is enabled. This would let participants connect with each other more easily. Added
  • In My messages, updated the search box on the left to also include speakers and moderators in search result. Updated
  • When there's a new unanswered question for a moderator, now displaying an icon with number (signifying number of questions waiting for approval) in the Q&A tab and in Unanswered tab. Similarly, when there's a new question for a speaker, displaying the icon with number (signifying number of questions waiting to be answered). Similarly, displaying the icon with number in the Polls tab and under Unanswered polls to all attendees signifying the number of unanswered polls so they are enticed to participate in the polls. Used the Red background with a circle to display the number. Added
  • In rooms and under breakouts tab in sessions, added a Join button on green rooms and a Request Access button in blue rooms to let people request access to the room. Added
