Joining A Meeting Quick-Start

This is a quick-start guide for people joining their first Highfive meeting by video or phone. Scroll down the page for the Join by Phone quick-start instructions.

Join by Video

First-time participants may need to grant permission for Highfive to use your device's mic and camera for the video call.

  1. Click the Highfive meeting link you were sent from your computer, mobile phone, or tablet.
    • Depending on your device configuration, you may be prompted to download the Highfive app.
    • Grant camera and microphone access if asked, so the other participants can see and hear you.
  2. Enter your email address to sign in on your first attempt to join from a device that hasn't been used for Highfive before.
    • Guests: Click the "Join as a Guest" button.
  3. If for any reason you're not brought into the meeting, click the meeting link a second time and it should bring you to the pre-meeting screen.

Guests: When joining a meeting you will be placed in a virtual waiting room and the meeting participants will be notified that you are there. You do not need to take any other actions to join the meeting.
