Each twine networking session generates its own unique attendee join link. The twine attendee join link is all you need to add twine to your next zoom meeting.

Here is how you'll do it.

Designing the Experience

Have users join your zoom meeting as they typically would. Plan the first part of the meeting to be content-focused and the second part to be in twine.

When you're ready to transition users from your virtual meeting to conversations in twine follow these steps.

  1. Ask users to mute their mic and turn off their cameraโ—๏ธThis step is very importantโ—๏ธtwine needs access to a user's mic and camera; if another app is using their camera and mic they might run into issues joining twine. AV issues are more common for users joining from a PC or with a bluetooth headset, closing zoom and refreshing twine will resolve.

  2. Post the twine room link in chat.

  3. Instruct users to click the link to join conversations in twine; tell users they can leave your virtual meeting once they've clicked into twine.

    • Users will have to sign up for twine if they're not already registered, this process will only take a couple of seconds

  • As an organizer, plan to stay back in the conferencing tool to chat with any users that might have questions.

  • List multiple users as hosts or co-hosts in Zoom; ask that co-host be on the lookout for users who join late or for users who come off mute.

    • How to add a Zoom co-host:

      1. Hover over a user's video.

      2. Click the ellipsis icon.

      3. Click Make Co-Host.

  • Create a how-to slide to share during your meeting, leave this instruction up as users leave your virtual meeting and join twine. Need a template? Click here.
