✨There are a few things you can do as a host to make your room sparkle✨
Invite people to your room 👯♂️
Anyone who has your room link/URL to your room can join. It can be found in your browser’s URL bar, from the bottom left-hand corner of your room via the “clipboard” icon, and in your confirmation email. Save your room link/URL somewhere special.
Protect your room with a password
You can protect your room with a guest password. After the host sets a guest password, everyone joining the room will have to provide the password. Ya know, like how a password works. 😉
You can change the guest password at any time.
*Save the guest password down somewhere as you yourself (as a host) will need it to access the room as well. If you lost your guest password, please send us the email address you opened up the room with as well as the room link.
Change the background
You can use one of our 40 sample backgrounds for your room or upload your own.
Pro Tip: Make sure your background makes sense; white background with white areas will appearing confusing. Always remember, calm colors mean calm guests.
Please note: if you decide to upload a custom background, the image may appear differently to your users, depending on the size of their screens. So we do not recommend including design elements that mark different areas in the room within the background. Please use our areas feature for that purpose instead.
Add Room Areas
Areas are digital meeting spaces you can create in your room. Areas will appear as white squares and allow your guests to navigate a room and move to topics that are most relevant or interesting for them. See them in action here. They can also be used as markers in the following ways:
Topics of interest for guests to discuss after a presentation.
Digital booths for presenters.
Breakout groups for workshops or classrooms.
Wonder currently supports up to 15 room areas.
Add an icebreaker question ☃️🔨
Give people the chance to break out of the “...so come here often…?” trap.
Set an ‘icebreaker question’ to serve as a conversation starter. Every guest will be asked the icebreaker question before entering the room. Their answer will be seen when you hover your cursor over their avatar. Need some help?
What company do you work for?
What's a topic that you're interested in?
What is your favorite band and why isn't it Black Sabbath?
Update the room name
Change the room name at any time in the host options. The options are actually limitless!
That's it! 🙂 Coming up next: Step 3: How to Invite People to Your Room. 🚀
