Create meetings

You create meetings in Adobe Connect Central. You can create meeting rooms to which you return repeatedly for your own use, and leave persistent content in the meeting room. To incorporate registration as part of your meeting, you must have the Event Management tab. See About Adobe Connect Events.

Your account administrator can request for a large webinar for 1500 participants using a separate license. If the Adobe Connect administrators approve the request, you receive a meeting room URL. Use this URL to create an event registration system.

You can use the meeting room anytime to run 25 participant meetings for trial. Configure the meeting room with content/layouts before you start the meeting. However, participants can log in to the meeting 15 minutes before the scheduled time of the meeting. Smaller meetings can be run at any time, without scheduling, if a meeting room is created.

1. Create an audio profile (for audio conferences)

Use the My Audio Profiles window (My Profile > My Audio Profiles) to configure an audio profile to use with an audio conference. Audio profiles use the conference settings associated with the selected audio provider to start the audio conference. See Create and use audio profiles.

2. Start the Meeting wizard

You have two options for starting the Meeting wizard. To create the meeting in your individual My Meetings folder, navigate to the Adobe Connect Central home page. On this page, locate the Create New menu bar, and click Meeting. To create your meeting in another folder for which you have Manage permission, navigate to that folder in the Meetings library. Then click the New Meeting button.

3. Enter meeting information

On the first page of the Meeting wizard, enter details about the meeting. These details include a name, custom URL, summary, date, duration, template, language, access restrictions, and audio conference settings (Only the name and language are required). If available, you can select an audio profile from the pop-up menu instead of manually entering audio conference settings. For more information about audio profiles, see Create and use audio profiles.

Enable opt out to provide an option to the participants to not provide non-explicitly submitted information to hosts. When participants choose to opt out, Adobe Connect excludes engagement index and private chat message count from the meeting reports.

4. Select meeting participants

Use the Available Users And Groups list to add participants. Find participants by name and expand groups to select individuals in the group. If you want, assign roles by selecting participant names and clicking Permissions from the bottom of the current participants list. Then, proceed to the final step of sending invitations or exit the wizard to send invitations later.

5. Send invitations

The wizard guides you through two separate processes, depending on whether the meeting is open to registered users only or to anyone. If the former, you select Send Invitations, select a group to invite (for example, hosts only), and edit the text that appears in the email message. You have the option of including a Microsoft Outlook calendar appointment. If the latter, you click Send E‑Mail Invitations, which open your email application, and add invitees to the distribution list of your email message.

Note: Adobe Connect is unable to send a meeting invite for a meeting where the character count for the content to send to the email client is more than 1000 characters. The issue is related to HTML tag mailto, as browsers cannot launch an email client when the content exceeds 1000 characters.
