What's a Meeting Request Rule
Rules are at the heart of the Meeting feature. A Rule is a combination between a Requester Group and a Host Group. For Meeting-purposes, a Group can either be from those that are available by default when you set up your Event (Attendees, Speakers, Exhibitors), or custom Groups that you, as the Organizer, manually set up afterward. For more information on Groups, check: How do Groups work
The Requester sends the Meeting Request Rule, and the Host receives the Meeting Request.
The Organizer creates Rules to define which Group can send a request, and with whom. Rules choice is the first required step of the Meeting feature setup. Meeting Slots and Meeting Locations depend on these Rules.
Setting up Meeting Request Rules
Rule creation consists of 3 steps:
- Select which Groups of People will be able to send a meeting request and to which other Groups
- Select the Locations where those Meetings are to take place
- Select the time Slots when those Meetings are to happen, meaning for each Location selected you can decide on the slots available
