Can I schedule a Biba meeting on a group or shared calendar?

Today, the meet@biba.com “We call you” feature does not support group calendars. However, there is another way that you can use Biba to provide meeting support when you use Group Calendars.
This article outlines how to schedule a meeting that will only appear on the Group and attendee’s calendars (not on the organizer’s calendar) and how to join a meeting using the Biba 2.13 client (users will join using the PIN provided).

Generate a One-time PIN
1. One Biba user who has enabled meet@biba.com will need to use the Schedule option to generate a One-time PIN that will be used for meetings on the Group Calendar. If you have multiple meetings, you can go ahead and generate multiple One-time PINs. Note: One-time PINs can be used many times (i.e. for recurring meetings or for all events on a particular group calendar). Feel free to re-use a One-time PIN or regenerate a new PIN for multiple meetings.

 

2. Click on the One-time PIN option (in the Select
the PIN to use area) and make a note of the passcode included in the meeting instructions.
3. Add instructions to your calendar invite and include the PIN. Here are some sample instructions you can leverage for a video call: ******************
