You and a colleague are doing a Powerpoint presentation over Highfive about your company's snack budget. Both of you are in a conference room using the Highfive system and your CFO has joined the meeting remotely.
The presentation is currently being shared from your laptop. Suddenly, a calendar notification appears on the screen for a meeting that's taking place across campus and you need to jump out a little early to make it! (It's okay, though, because your colleague actually pulled his weight and can cover the rest of the presentation.)
Question: How do you leave the meeting so that you can take your laptop with you, but not disconnect your CFO and colleague?
Answer: Use the Keep Meeting Running on TV feature!
Keep Meeting Running on TV
You can disconnect from your Highfive device without ending a call for the participants in your conference room by following the steps below:
- First, ensure that you're paired to the Highfive device and that there is at least one other remote participant in the call.
- If your TV is the only participant in a meeting, any session on your TV will automatically end when you leave. The Highfive device will not remain in an "empty call" by itself.
- Click the Leave Meeting button
- You'll then be prompted to either End Meeting on TV or Keep Meeting Running on TV
- Click Keep Meeting Running on TV
- And that's it! You have left the call and are now free to take your laptop wherever you please.
How do others stop the call?
After all other participants leave, the Highfive-equipped TV will notice it's the only participant left and will automatically disconnect after a few seconds.
Alternatively, if your conference room is equipped with a Dolby audio device, you can tap the Leave meeting button on it's touch-screen display to end the call in the conference room.
