Desktop: How To Use A Session Link

Q:  What is a session link?

A:  It is a specific link to one particular session.

 

Q:  What’s the difference between using an invitation list and a session link to invite guests to a session?

A:  Using an invitation list requires the Host to add email IDs to the invitation list prior to a session. When this method is chosen, system generated invitations and reminders can be used. Only the individuals whose email IDs have been added can join the session.

 

Q:  Is there a way to invite someone “on-the-fly” while actually live in the session?

A:  Yes, only the Host can invite. (See help article: How To Invite A Guest “On-The-Fly” To A Session)

 


 Creating Session Links

From the Session Details page find Invitation Type and choose one of the link options.

 

 

  1. Link – Password Requested
    • When using this method, the system creates a unique link to the session. The link can be copied and independently sent to your invitees. When your invitees click on the link, they are required to enter their email and their Jigsaw user password. If the person has not previously created a Jigsaw account, they are guided through that process when signing in.
  2. Link – Password Not Requested
    • When using this method, the system creates a unique link to the session. The link can be copied and independently sent to your invitees. When your invitees click on the link, they are required to enter their email along with their first and last name. This method does not require a Jigsaw user account.

 

 

When an invitee clicks on the link, they are asked to enter their email ID.

 
 

If the password not requested link was used, first and last name is requested.

 
If the link password requested option was used, the invitee’s Jigsaw password is needed. If the person has not previously created a Jigsaw user profile, the system will prompt them to do so.  

 

Then join the session.
