The Meeting URL used in Webview or IFRAME Source may be customized by passing Query String Parameter to update UI Elements and/or to update User Experience. Without any of these paramters, the Low Code Embed appears / behaves as per settings done through Visual Builder. However, in case you look to alter while embedding, Query String Parameters come handy.

Overview

The Meeting URLs can be further qualified with Query String Parameters, to pass the feature list and other data to the Video Meetings as per the requirement.

  • Use the Query String Qualified Meeting URLs directly from the browser’s address bar or as an IFRAME Embed.
  • Pass different parameters for different Participants or a Moderator in the same meeting.
  • Use the Query String Parameters to overwrite the feature list through the portal as described in the Select Preferred Features. If associated parameters are not used, pre-set feature setting remains the same.
