Fuze Mobile Interface Overview
Fuze products are designed to be consistent and intuitive so that you can let work flow. Whether you’re using Fuze Desktop, Fuze Web, or Fuze Mobile, you’ll likely find it easy to chat or meet without assistance, but to help you get started, here’s an overview of Fuze Mobile:
You can chat with groups to which you are invited, or one-on-one conversations other people start with you. You can also start a one-on-one conversation with anyone in a group you’ve joined.
To chat with a person or group, simply open Fuze, Search for the person or group (or tap a conversation), enter a message, and tap Send.
At this time, Fuze apps do not generate notifications or follow up emails for messages you receive while the app is not open.
You can join any meeting to which you’re invited, or if someone provides you with a meeting ID, you can join using the ID. Additionally, you can use Fuze Mobile to view and join Upcoming or Past meetings to which you’ve been invited.
Join a Meeting
You can join a scheduled meeting by tapping Meetings, then tapping the meeting you want to join in the Upcoming list.
To join a meeting using the Meeting ID:
1. Tap Meetings, then tap Join a Meeting
2. Enter the meeting ID number.
3. Tap Join.
4. Select an audio option, and then tap Join Meeting to join the meeting.
When you’re in a meeting, you’ll see tiles for other participants whether they’re on video, voice-only, or they’re dialed in.
From the meeting toolbar at the bottom of a meeting, you can control your mic, audio, and video, and you can add people, chat, or create a shared note with everyone in the meeting.
Tap the More menu at the lower right of the meeting to access everything from meeting info, to settings, to recordings and more.
Tap Share to share content from your mobile device. You can share photos and other files from your device, or, if you’ve previously uploaded the file, you can share content from the Fuze cloud.
Groups are a great way to get together and collaborate with people in Fuze. You can create groups any time, and you can name groups if you need to give them a theme. When you’re part of a group, your meetings, chat conversations, and shared files are all available in one place. You can also jump from a group chat into a meeting at any time.
Presence and Settings
You can set your presence, update your avatar, sign out, and access settings window via the Profile menu.
Your status automatically updates when you’re in a meeting, busy, away, available, or unavailable. You can also manually set your presence and add a custom status message by tapping the Pencil icon and selecting a state.
The Settings screen includes several subsections in which you can configure your meeting, audio, video and other settings.
