Video and Teleconferencing Guide

A few parishioners have experienced difficulties joining and taking part in council meetings being held by video conference.  It looks like we are going to be continuing with video conferencing for some time so the information below may provide assistance.

It is impractical to provide advice that will suit everyone as there are more than a dozen ways to join a meeting depending on your equipment, operating system and the meeting system being used.

Walford Parish Council currently use two video conferencing systems WebEx and GoToMeeting.

Details of meetings and their joining information are shown on the calendar, which includes which meeting system is being used.  Normally, if you are joining from a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone you just need to click on the “join meeting” button.  If you are joining by phone then dial the number and follow the verbal instructions.

That’s the simple bit!  Now you will need to allow the meeting software access to your microphone and camera.  The following videos provide the basic information for joining a meeting, if you need more information please got to the software providers website WebEx  or  GoToMeeting
