Lesson 2: Features for Event Enhancement
In Remo 101, we learned about basic features that you need to create a basic event. In 201, I’ll show you features that will take your event to the next level.
Starting on your bottom white toolbar, in between the cam and mic buttons is a triangle that if you click up, you can adjust the aspect ratio of your camera feed, add a virtual background, or select your input if you have multiple or virtual cameras.
The lobby will be discussed in its own Remo 201 video.
Under the more tab, you can open the whiteboard for yourself at your table.
The whiteboards are powered by Miro. When they open, there will be a prompt that this board will be deleted in 24 hours. If you’re using the whiteboard for guest collaboration or games for a one-time event that doesn’t last more than 24 hours, there is nothing more you need to do. If you wish to have your whiteboards last longer than 24 hours, you need to go sign up with Miro for a free or paid subscription.
Once logged into Miro, hosts can import a board from their Miro account by clicking this down button and selecting the board from the pop-up screen. Set the level of access by choosing if someone can freely edit or draw on the board, comment only, or have it be a read-only board. Once you select, it will automatically import from your Miro account into Remo. If you see a screen that says this board has expired, and you have a Miro account, you can click the import icon and click on a new board to refresh the whiteboard back to its clean, blank state. We have in-depth whiteboard masterclasses linked in the academy.
Next is the timer. If you have a speed session that you need to keep track of, or if you have a Q and a session that you want to make sure stays on track, you can use the timer feature in conversation or presentation mode to help stay on time. Set how many sessions you need, how long they should last, and how long the breaks between each session will be. Click set. And when you’re ready, click the play button. The timer will silently count down the change from green to yellow, reset, pause based on the time between sessions, and then start automatically on the next round. When the timer completes its final cycle, it will turn red. To clear the timer when finished, select the timer from the more tab.
Next is shuffle guests, which automatically changes all guests within their floor to new tables to meet new connections and network. This will not shuffle individuals in and out of the locked green room. There is a minimum of 6 guests needed for the feature to operate. Once started, there will be a 30 second countdown, giving your guests a warning, they should wrap up their conversations because the seat shuffling is about to begin. If at any time, you wish to stop the shuffle before the 30 seconds expires, click Cancel. The feature shuffle is one-time per use. If you wish to have more shuffling, you need to repeat the process each time. Once the timer hits 0, the avatars will be shuffled throughout the same floor in the event space.
If you lose track of where you are, you can use the bull’s eye icon located on the left-hand side of the screen to zoom in for where am I. Use the minus to zoom back out, or use your mouse wheel.
One additional feature is activated by hovering your mouse over an avatar and then right-clicking, this displays a dropdown that for hosts will show they can invite this guest to the green room, they can remove the guest from the space or block them from returning.
Hosts and Guests can invite someone who is not at their table to join them by using the Get option or by sending that individual a private direct message. Guests see the same features when right-clicking, except for the remove and invite to green room options. Using the left mouse click this will display the guest’s profile card.
