Once your meeting is connected to the audio bridge and you have joined the conference audio, you're ready to start your session. Starting your session initiates the session recorder, the session timer and tracking session events.
If you see the above auto-start message on the Adobe Connect menu bar, it means your session will start automatically when the preset number of participants join the meeting. You don't need to do anything else to start the session.
If auto-start is not enabled or you would like to start the session before the preset number of participants join, use the Assistant Panel >>> Session tab.
Note: Auto-start parameters cannot be modified by Assistant Panel users. To change these parameters contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Assistant Panel Session tab
To start the session
- Click on the VP Assistant dropdown menu.
- Select the Session tab on the left.
- Click the Start icon
Recording and timing the session
When you start the session, if auto-record is enabled, you will be notified the meeting is being recorded. This message will disappear in a few seconds or you can close it by clicking on (1) the x in the upper right corner of the message box. Recording status is also indicated on the top menu bar by (2) the red recording indicator to the right of the Help option.
Starting the session starts the session timer, which tracks the duration of the meeting. This is displayed to the right of the VP Assistant dropdown menu.
As the meeting host you can pause the session at any time either by clicking on the Pause icon or the pause button to the right of the timer. See "How do I pause a session?" for details about pausing and restarting a session.
The Assistant Panel allows you to control the session timer display. Use the Advanced Settings panel to control timer visibility. By default the timer is displayed to hosts, presenters and particpants.
