Meet Usability



  • Hi,

    we use meet within the webapp in the browser.
    Now i open a new call and an group and want to invite someone to the meeting. As meet
    is running in a tab of the webapp, i expected, that the invitation should open a new tab
    within the same webapp to send the mail. But meet open’s the standard mail program.
    So the user is confused, why open another mail program, if i am in logged in in my
    groupware ?

    And i have an second suggestion. If i am logged in into meet, i see my contact’s. It would
    be very useful, if i also would see, if they are online (also logged in into meet). Would that
    be possible ?

    best regards and keep on your good work on kopano

    Hi @mniehren,

    to be generally compatible with other mail clients Meet uses mailto: links for the final invitation mail. Kopano WebApp asks the user to assign itself as a target for these links upon login so this usually works out quite nice. But in your case it sounds like you have not configured WebApp to be your main mail application.

    Yes, this is something that could eventually be achieved through the rest api of Kopano. But as far as I know there are no concrete plans as to the when and if.

    ok, i understand. And yes, i had not configured Webapp as my main mail
    application. So i do and in firefox there is now open a new window of
    the webapp to write the invitation mail.
    Can i do something that a new tab in webapp is openend instead of a tab
    in the Browser ?

    best regards

    No, I don’t think there can be anything done about this.



  • @mniehren Could you please how did you get meet to work within webapp in the browser?



  • @notifyme

    If you have a running Meet, you only have to configure it in the intranet-Plugin,
    so you can see an extra entry in the Menu

    Something like this:
    define(‘PLUGIN_INTRANET_BUTTON_TITLE’, ‘Kopano-Meet’);
    define(‘PLUGIN_INTRANET_URL’, ‘https://<your address to meet>/meet/’);
