Designing your Waiting Room

Designing your Waiting Room

Your Waiting Room experience consists of three parts to make up a delightful first experience with your workshop.

Jump to a section

1. A unique cover image 🖼️

The Waiting Room is the first thing any participant will see when they arrive for your workshop, before joining your session.

We recommend you add a personal touch to your Waiting Room to set the mood just right. You can upload an image or a GIF that will show together with your name and the name of the room.

It looks like this:


1.1 Uploading the image

To add a cover image, hit 'Upload an image' on the right hand side of the room setup and select the image you want for your Welcome Page.


  • File formats: JPEG, PNG or GIF(❕).
  • Recommended size: 460x600 pixels.
    • → Don't worry, you can crop any picture of any resolution to make it a perfect fit!

Once you like how it's cropped, click 'Save' and you'll have a Cover Image set up for your Waiting Room!

2. The perfect waiting music 🎵

Make your waiting room experience delightful. Add some music to the atmosphere!

Pick one of the elevator classics, or - from our Absolute Butter Music Vol. 1 collection - pick a chill, jazzy, powerful or soulful tune that will set the tone for participants entering your workshop.


3. Knocking (privacy settings) ✊

Use the Knock-knock settings to help keep the right people in and the wrong people out.

When this is enabled, anyone who wants to join your session has to knock (request to join) and wait until you let them in. This makes your room private and protects it from unwanted visitors.

When disabled, participants can freely join your session without knocking and without needing your approval.

Toggle 'Request to join' on the bottom to enable or disable this setting.
