Host a Preciate Social by creating your Room, inviting people to attend, and attending the yourself.
Anyone can create a Room in Preciate Social. Just navigate to the main Social page on Preciate's web app, or use the /social command in our Slack Integration.
Creating the Social
Start out by clicking "Create a Room" on the social home page.
You can start the Social right away by clicking "Create A Room", or click "Edit Room Settings" to change the background, Social name, music playlist, and desired join settings.
After editing your Room settings, you can either enter the Room immediately or save it for later by clicking "Save to Your Rooms". You can then view, edit, share the link, and start your saved Social from the Upcoming Socials Section on the Social Home page.
Inviting People to the Room
You can invite people to your Preciate Social Room before or during the event. Either way, the method for inviting people is simple: copy the link and share it in whatever ways you want. Some people may choose to email the link to their invitees, and others may decide to paste it in their Google/Microsoft Calendar invitation.
Keep in mind that the join settings you determined while creating the Room will affect who will be able to actually join. You can send anyone the link, but only those who have permission can enter.
As a host, you can also choose to allow access to guest users who do not have a Preciate account by toggling the 'Allow Join Before Host' button to the right prior to starting the Social.
Starting the Social
If you saved to your Rooms instead of starting it immediately after making it, then when the Social is scheduled to start, click on the link (if you have it saved in a calendar event) or navigate back to the main Social page on Preciate's web app, and click the "Create a Room" button next to your event.
This will send you into the waiting room. Once you have your audio and video set, click "Open Room." Then, the people you have invited will be able to enter the Room as well.
Leaving the Room
As the host, you have two options when you go to leave the Room. If the event is over, and you would like to close out the room, then you can go ahead and "Close the Room For All". Alternatively, you can leave the Room open for the remaining attendees to enjoy after you leave by clicking "Leave Room".
Hosting Multiple Rooms
At the moment, you cannot create Rooms with more than 50 participants. You can, however, create multiple simultaneous Rooms.
The Rooms will automatically close after 1 minute if there is no one in them, however, so we suggest designating different people to stay in each Social Room until the end of the event.
Also, if you are hosting multiple Rooms at once, make sure to tell participants that they should leave one Room before entering another one. No participant should be in two Rooms at once-- in the same way that you can't be in two rooms at once in real life.
If a Room is created and there is no one in it, it will automatically be closed and the event will end.
