Prevail Sessions User Interface

Use this section to make your way around Prevail Sessions.

When you join a Session, you are taken to the Sessions application, where live proceedings take place. Session participants are displayed in individual video tiles that you can pin for clearer viewing. You can access familiar video conferencing tools, such as screen-share and audio controls, as well as specialized Session panels from the Session Toolbar.

Sessions application

AParticipant Video Tile

Each tile displays a participant’s video feed and speaker label. As additional participants are admitted into the Session, tiles automatically resize to fit the screen. If a participant’s camera is turned off, the participant’s initials or photo will appear in place of the video feed. If you are a Prevail Member, you can add a photo to your user profile from the User Settings menu.

BPin Tile

To focus on a single tile, pin the tile so that it appears larger for clearer viewing. You can pin one or more tiles to the main viewing area of the Session screen by clicking the Pin icon in the tile. Any tiles you pin do not alter the display of other participants and are only visible to you. Screen shares and file exhibits are automatically pinned for all participants.

CSpeaker Label

Each video tile is labeled with the Participant’s name and role. In addition, the audio icon in the tile appears with an X when a participant’s microphone is muted.

DSession Toolbar

Icons on the Session Toolbar provide access to user controls and Session Application panels.

User Controls

The Session Toolbar provides access to specialized Session panels in addition to familiar video conferencing controls. Some toolbar icons may not be visible on smaller screens or resized browser windows. You can access any hidden icons from the More panel.
