Meetoo and PowerPoint in CLS rooms

The Meetoo add-in for PowerPoint is now available in all CLS rooms, but you have to install it yourself. This should be a one-off process, and once installed it is available to all users of that room – but if iSolutions update that CLS PC then you may have to re-install the add-in.

  • You can also install the Meetoo add-in on your office PC or laptop in exactly the same way.
  • If you don’t have Additional Software you can download the add-in from Meetoo.
  • If you have an Apple Mac, you can only use the Meetoo Lite add-in (see below).

Installing the add-in takes about one minute:

  1. Double-click the Additional Software icon on the desktop
  2. Search Additional Software for Meetoo
  3. Click Install and click Yes to confirm
  4. Wait until installation is Complete – this takes around 30 seconds
  5. Start PowerPoint and open your presentation.

Connecting to your Meetoo account

  1. View the Meetoo control ribbon in PowerPoint
  2. Click the Dashboard button
  3. Connect to southampton.meetoo.io
  4. Log in using your Meetoo username (email) and password
  5. Your dashboard will open in a web browser
  6. Select and copy the Meeting ID you will be using
  7. In PowerPoint, click the Disconnected button on the Meetoo control ribbon
  8. Enter your Meetoo username and password and Login (again… sorry)
  9. Paste the Meeting ID, click Connect and then Done
  10. If your meeting is not already started, you will be asked if you wish to start it when you begin your presentation:

Dilaogue showing option to Start meeting, simulate polling or disable pollingNote that steps 2-6 above are not required if you know the Meeting ID and just type it in step 9. However, I recommend opening your dashboard so that you can easily view messages posted by your students. You can turn messaging off if you don’t wish to use it during a meeting.

The Meetoo Lite add-in for PowerPoint

There is another way to add Meetoo polling slides that does not require any installation on CLS PCs. You will need to install it on your office PC – it is a free download from the Microsoft Store. It works with PowerPoint 2016 for Windows and Mac – so this is the only option for Mac users.

  1. Create your presentation with polling slides on a PC or Mac that has the Meetoo Lite add-in installed.
  2. To be completed… just carrying out a few tests.
