CHANGES AND NEW FEATURES This section defines the changes and new features for Inter-Tel Web Conferencing and Remote Support v4.5. • Added Audio (Voice Chat) and AVI Player — Voice Chat indicator: The voice chat icon located in the attendee list will appear green to all participants when someone is speaking. • Added the Install Add-ons link to both the My Office and Public Area pages. From the Install Add-ons page, all available downloads can be accessed. — Added Desktop Installable Client: This new feature allows you to install the con- trol panels for Web Conferencing and Remote Support locally on the host or users’ computer. This new feature allows for faster and more stable connections. — Outlook Form Template (OFT): Allows meetings to be created from within Out- look. • Removed Address Book Import button and replaced it with: — OFT (see above) — Mailto: This function allows the host to use its local e-mail program as the mail client rather than using the Conferencing Server’s e-mail program. Refer to “Edit My Profile” on page 10 for information on configuring this function. • Added Two new tabs to the Public Area page for Remote Support. — Agents: This tab displays all available agents — Queue: This tab lists all queues. Both of these tabs are available without having to log on. To join a Remote Sup- port session, click the Queue tab and select the appropriate queue.

  8. 8. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 • Improved Office Page layout: — Action items (Join, Edit, Unscheduled) are now at the beginning of the line. Also, the Join item is replaced with Register if the meeting host requires attendees to register. — Added Invite link: An Invite action item has been placed on the Hosts office page next to the other meeting action items. When accessed, it loads the new Meeting Details page that allows the host to invite participants to a meeting. • Keyboard Chat: Private messages now show the sender's name within double chevrons. • Keyboard Chat activity indicator: The keyboard chat icon located in the attendee list will appear green to all participants when someone is typing. • Added Join By Meeting Number link on the Office and Public Pages. Clicking this link allows you to join a Web Conferencing meeting by entering a meeting session number. • Enhanced video conferencing: The Video Conferencing control by default, will not show through the viewport to the client viewer window. This alleviates confusion caused by the client seeing video through the viewer and through their own video con- ferencing control. • Added a snapshot function to video conferencing. To take a snapshot, click the camera icon near the top of the video conferencing window. • Added New Keystroke Function: Added Support for CTRL + a numeric key (0-9) com- binations in remote control. • Enhanced the Remote Support Reports: The reports will now display more descriptive information on how a call was answered, or why it was dropped. Added an option to hide calls that were unanswered. • New buttons at the bottom of the Test Browser page — TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE: Clicking this button opens a guide that lists the most common problems along with the solutions to the problems, — INSTALL ADD-ONS: Clicking this button opens a Web page that provides installs for the Inter-Tel Collaboration Client and other client add-ons. Installing the Inter- Tel Collaboration Client installs all necessary software such as Java and enables you to quickly join a meeting. In addition, as long as the Web Conferencing server is running, the client aids in helping you to pass the browser test. Page 4 Changes and New Features

  13. 13. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 MY OFFICE After you log in to the Web Conferencing/Remote Support Server, you are presented with your Office page.

  14. 14. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Edit My Profile The Edit User page allows you to change account information such as password, name, e-mail address, and other user information. Required fields are indicated in red, as shown below. There are two options for E-mail Delivery: Conferencing Server (default) and User’s E-mail Client. Reasons to select the Conferencing Server option: • If the user has only Web-based mail. For example, if the user does not have Microsoft Outlook, EUDORA® or another e-mail program that will work with the Mailto function (Yahoo!®, Gmail, etc. will not work with the Mailto function). The Mailto function operates by opening a new message window when you click on an e-mail address link. The e-mail address appears in the “To” field. • If the user chooses to use the default meeting e-mail notification and prefers to allow the conferencing server to handle the e-mails. The User’s Email Client option allows a user to choose to use their own e-mail server to send out Web Conferencing meeting notifications. If the user wants to use their own mail server rather than the Conferencing server, they need to verify whether their current mail server can use the Mailto function. To verify whether a mail server can use Mailto: 1. Go to www.inter-tel.com. 2. At the bottom of the page, click the Contact Us link. 3. On the Web page that appears, click any e-mail link. If a mail server client appears, then User’s E-mail Client can be used. Otherwise, if a mail server client does not appear, then the Conferencing Server option is the only option that will work. NOTE: If your user ID profile was set up with User's Email Client selected instead of Confer- encing Server (the mail client that was included with Web Conferencing), you will have to manu- ally create and send meeting cancellation notices. If your account was set up to use the mail client that was included with Inter-Tel Web Conferencing Server, the Meeting Cancellation e- mail will automatically be sent. Page 10 Edit My Profile

Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 PUBLIC AREA The Public Meetings page is where anyone who is given the Web address of your Web Confer- encing/Remote Support Server can access shared documents, recordings, or public meetings.

Page 12 Public Area
  17. 17. Introduction to Web Conferencing and Remote Support INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Inter-Tel Collaboration Client - Host and Attendees should install the Inter-Tel Collaboration Client for optimal performance. Installing the Collaboration Client pre-installs all required components for Web Conferencing and Remote Support sessions. Without this, Attendees will need to pass a Browser Test prior to joining a session. Microsoft Outlook® Conferencing Form - This is an Inter-Tel form that can be added to Microsoft Outlook. Once installed, this form allows the Host to create and schedule Web Con- ferencing meetings directly from the Microsoft Outlook Calendar. With this option, the Host can preview Attendee availability prior to sending invitations. Public Recordings The Public Recordings page lists all the posted recordings that are made available to the pub- lic. To play a recording, double-click the description line for the recording. Public Documents When you click View Public Documents, the Document Management page explains how to use the Document Manager. To access the Documents Manager, click LAUNCH DOCUMENT MANAGER.

The Application Sharing window shows all the appli- cations that the meeting host has running. When an attendee logs into the meeting, they will see a gray screen until the host selects which application(s) they would like to show in the application window on the client screen. Once you select an application, only that application will be shared.

To have an application appear in the Application shar- ing window, select the application so that a check mark appears, as shown in the example to the right. The application will then appear in the client’s appli- cation window. NOTE: If you have many applications running on your desktop, it is important to minimize any application that you do not intend to share in your application window. If you leave them up, they may appear in the foreground, masked out with Web Conferencing graphics, but also blocking the view of the application that you want to show. After everyone can see your application, you can allow particular individuals or all attendees to try out the application by giving him or her remote access. You can give one or more attendees remote access by highlighting their name in the attendee list and clicking the remote control button ( ) under the Attendee list. An eye icon will appear next to their name if they access your application remotely. Giving them remote access allows them to simultaneously control the application running on your desktop.

Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Record Options Recording Space: A counter under the red record button keeps track of how much space is being used to store the recording. Under Record Options you will see the list of four Web Conferencing Controls that you can record: • Viewport • Voice Chat • Video Conferencing • KeyBoard chat You can select almost any combination of these of these controls to record except Voice Chat and Video Conferencing since they cannot run at the same time Record Offline: The host has an option of broadcasting what is being recorded to one or all participants or to record with no one seeing what is being recorded. Selecting this option allows only the host to see what is being recorded. Viewport Record Options: You can record the Viewport by selecting the Viewport option. When you choose to record the viewport, you have two different ways to record the viewport: • Snapshot: The host has an option to record in a snapshot mode where the host can take a snapshot of the desktop by clicking the red record button (just like a camera). This format takes snapshots of the entire viewport. Using snapshot, you can later view your recording forward or backward. • Continuous: When it is not in snapshot mode, it is running in a continuous mode where every action is recorded as it happens. Frame capture is only limited by the speed of the host’s PC. This format takes one initial complete view of the viewport and then records only the incremental changes that occur in the viewport. You can view this recording forward; however, since you’re capturing only the incremental changes, it won’t work as well viewing the continuous recording backwards. Record Options Page 41

Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Voice Chat or Video Conferencing Recording Options: • Voice Chat: Records only the Voice Chat. • Video Conferencing: Records only the Video Conferencing. • Neither selected: Records other selected controls (Viewport and/or KeyBoard Chat) but not Voice Chat or Video Conferencing. KeyBoard Chat Recording Option: Keyboard Chat: Records only the Keyboard Chat. Storage Recording Options • Save on server: When recording a session, a user has the option to save the recording to a local file or on the Network Neighborhood or at the ConnectionPoint server. Saving to the ConnectionPoint Server is the default. When you clear this option, a window appears that allows you to browse to where you want to save your recording. • Storage: The host has the option of overwriting an existing saved file or appending to an existing saved file by selecting the appropriate option. If the “Overwrite” option is selected, the host will select the file from a pop-up list that is to be overwritten. If the append option is selected, the host will select a file from the pop-up list that is to have the recording appended. Display Thumbnail preview: This options allows you to see what you are recording. This option uses considerable CPU processing power, which may affect the efficiency of your other controls.

  47. 47. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 Recording a Session Before you start recording, you should review the Record options. From the Options menu you can select to view the Record options menus. NOTE: You can change viewport settings before you start recording. Once the recording has begun, viewport settings cannot be changed. Before recording the session, the host will need to decide what will be recorded (Viewport, Voice, or Chat), how it will be recorded (Snapshot or Continuous), and where the recorded file will be stored (on the ConnectionPoint server or on the local host machine or on the Network Neighborhood). The Record options menu will allow you to choose where to save your session recording. If you decide to save your file to the local PC or on your Network Neighborhood, the Save on Server box must not be selected. Once the Save on Server option is clear, you will be able to select from Overwrite or Append. If you decide to save your recording on the server, select Save on Server. The Overwrite and Append options will appear dimmed. Record offline: When you choose this option, you do not show the other folks in the session what you are doing. Saving File to local PC or Network Neighborhood: To save the file to the local PC or the Network Neighborhood, the “Save on server” option must not be selected. Assigning File Name: When the “Save on server” option is not selected, clicking the record button will activate a pop-up window. The pop-up window prompts the host to assign a file name and file location to save the recording for future playback. The default file location is “Temp.” The following options are only available when a recording is stored locally: • Overwrite option: If the overwrite option was selected, a pop-up window prompts whether the existing file is to be replaced by the new recording. Clicking Yes brings the recording session to a “Record pending” mode to allow the host to set up the desktop for the recording session. • Append option: If the append option was selected in the record options, the recording session will be appended to the file that has been selected by the Host.

  48. 48. Web Conferencing INTER-TEL® WEB CONFERENCING/REMOTE SUPPORT USER GUIDE – Issue 4.5, June 2006 When the host has completed the set up, the recording session begins by clicking the red record button. When the recording session is complete (the host clicked the stop button) the file is saved on the local PC and is available for replay on demand. There are no Hot keys for the Record and Playback control panel. Saving File on the ConnectionPoint Server To save to the ConnectionPoint Server, the “Save on server” option must be selected. All of the options described in the Save on Local PC section apply to the “Save on server” option, except that the “Overwrite” and “Append” options are not available. Clicking the red record button launches any controls that have been selected in the “Record Options” section of the Record and Playback control panel. The control panel is now in a “Record pending” mode. The host is required to give the record- ing to be saved a description. A “Limit access” option is used to indicate if the session to be recorded is private or public. The default is that the recording is public and the file will be saved as a public file on the server. This file will appear in the list of public recordings and can be viewed by anyone with access to the public area. If the user selects to make this recording private, the “Limit access” option must be selected. This is to indicate who will have access to view this recording. An input area is provided for the host to assign access to the recording by entering a semicolon delimited list of Email addresses or Web Conferencing IDs. Names that are entered in the “Limit access” area must exist in the database as registered participants. If the “Limit access” area is blank, then only the owner will be able to view the file. Once complete, the file is saved on the server. A description of the session being recorded is to be entered in the description input area. If no description is entered, the default is date and time (200110271000). In addition, the Connec- tionPoint automatically assigns a 13 character internal file identification number. When the “Description” and the “Limit access” decisions have been completed, then the recording can begin by clicking the red record button. The host clicks the stop button to com- plete the recording and the session is now archived and is available for playback. Page 44 Record Options
