Jitsi

Jitisi provides secure remote conferencing services providing video conferencing and online meetings as a free open source solution

What is Jitsi?

Jitsi is a collection of free and open-source multiplatform voice, videoconferencing and instant messaging applications for the web platform, Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS and Android.

How does Zoom work with Jitsi?

Nexudus connects to Jitsi in two ways:

Always-on Virtual Rooms

Always-on Virtual Rooms enable your customers to quickly jump into a meeting without having to install any additional software. The virtual rooms are always ready to accept participants.

You can create any number of rooms and make those available to different types of customers as well as automatically provide a private room to each of your teams and even individual customers.

Enabling this option will generate a unique link along with each booking confirmation for each of your rooms. This link will be provided to the customer booking a room as well as to every guest or visitor who is invited as part of that booking.

You can use the token {jitsi} in your email templates to include the unique video conference link.

How to enable the Jitsi integration

To start using any of the functions described above, you must enable Jitsi in your account as a Nexudus Administrator.

  • In the side menu, click Settings.

There a three settings you want to be familiar with:

  • Include a video conference link in all booking confirmation emails. Enable this option if you would like to generate a unique video conference link and send that link as part of the confirmation email for each booking sent to customers and guests.
