Joining a Session Without a Host/Co-Host

 

If you click a link to join a session and it does not ask for your email address, this means you (or someone else) is already logged into Jigsaw.  If you are unsure the login belongs to you, click the 'Start Over' that appears in the message 'If you are not sure you logged in, please click Start Over' to return to the login screen.  This will log the account out of Jigsaw.  You can then click the link again, or log in and select the session from the My Sessions page to join.

 


There are three ways to join a session.

  • Logging in using your Jigsaw username and password (credentials)
  • Clicking on the Session Link provided by the host and logging in using your Jigsaw credentials
  • Clicking on the Session Link provided by the host and no password required

If a Host or Co-Host does not join the session within 15 minutes, you will be removed from the session's "waiting" screen.  You will receive the message "The session does not have a presenter.  Please check back later."
