Moderate a Solstice Session

Moderator mode allows a meeting host to approve requests from collaborators to join the session or post content to the display. Once moderator mode is enabled, a session moderator must approve future requests for users to join the meeting or for new content to be posted, and only a moderator can control content layout.

Select the directions appropriate for your needs:

How to Moderate a Session in Solstice Desktop App

  1. Open the Mersive Solstice app and connect to a Solstice display to start a collaboration session.
  2. Select Moderate in the left navbar of the app.
  3. Switch the Moderate Meeting toggle to on (blue).
  4. When a new collaborator attempts to connects to the display, an alert will appear in the sidebar. Click Alerts to view the request. The moderator may choose one of three options:
    • Deny the connection: The collaborator will be notified that their connection attempt was canceled by the moderator.
    • Approve the connection: The collaborator will be connected to the display.
    • Approve as Moderator: The collaborator will join with full moderator rights to approve and reject requests to join and post content.
  5. When a collaborator posts content to the display, an alert will again appear in the Alerts section of the sidebar. Two options display for a post request:
    • Reject: The post will not appear on the display. Rejecting the request will not alert the user that their post has been rejected.
    • Approve: The post will appear on the display.
  6. To manage participants' posts, select Layout from the sidebar. Right-click a participant's icon at the bottom of the layout window for options including showing all posts, hiding all posts, stacking posts, and deleting all posts for the selected participant.
