Pulse Collaboration Overview

Pulse Collaboration (formerly Secure Meeting) allows users to securely schedule and hold online meetings between both Connect Secure users and non-Connect Secure users. In meetings, users can share their desktops and applications with one another over a secure connection, allowing everyone in the meeting to instantaneously share electronic data on-screen. Meeting attendees can also securely collaborate online by remote-controlling one another's desktops and through text chatting using a separate application window that does not interfere with the presentation.

The number of meetings and users doubles in a cluster configuration compared to a single unit. For example, if you have x meeting/y users in a single unit, then you have 2x meeting/2y users in a two-plus cluster unit.

NOTE: During installation, if the Pulse Installer Service is not present Pulse Collaboration prompts for the administrator credentials. If you do not know the administrator credentials, Pulse Collaboration will install but the remote controlling of higher privilege processes feature will not be enabled. If you enter the administrator credentials correctly, this feature is enabled.

All Pulse Collaboration online meetings must be scheduled by a system user. The meeting creator specifies meeting details such as the meeting name, description, start time, start date, recurrence pattern, duration, password, and a list of invitees.

Meeting creators can use either of the following applications to schedule meetings:

Meeting creators can bypass these scheduling mechanisms if they choose to create instant meetings or support meetings instead of standard meetings.

You can create meetings with static URLs for a particular type of meeting (for example, weekly status meetings). You do not need to schedule these types of meetings. The host starts the meeting and the invitees enter the URL to attend the meeting.
