In order to exchange information with your colleagues about a problem, you need to create a new case. Within this case you can then exchange and collect all information. To do this, click on „Create case“.
Add case title

Now enter a case title and optionally describe the problem directly.

Select filter

Now you optionally already enter corresponding filters, with which you can find the case later in the archive more easily. You can also skip setting the filters.

Add employees
Now select the colleagues with whom you want to exchange information. Only the people you invite to the case will be able to see it. When you have selected the colleagues, click on „Create case“.

Now you are in the case. The arrow in the top left corner will take you back to your case overview. On the next pages the different functions within a case will be explained.

Start conference

To start a videoconference, click on „Conference“ at the top right of the screen. In the next step, select the participants for the video conference. A video conference always takes place within a case. Therefore, you can only select the participants who are members of the case.

Conference mode

If you have started a conference, you will first be in conference mode. Here you can see all participants of the conference. To set the focus on a video image, simply click on the corresponding image.

Working mode

When you have set the focus on a participant, you are in the so-called working mode. Now their virtual pointer tools are activated, with which you can display something in the live image. In addition to the pointer tools, you also have the option to take a screenshot of the video transmission, which is then saved as an image in the case.

Share and edit images during a conference

Within a video conference, you can share images and edit them synchronously with the participants in the conference. To do this, click on „Share images“ in the upper left margin. Now you can select one of the images that were shared in the case. If you click on one of the images, the image editing mode will open, which you already know from the Edit images section. The only difference is that the image editing mode is now live in the conference and every participant can edit the image.

Share screen during a conference

If you want to share your screen with your conference partner, e.g. to work together on documents outside the application, you can easily do that by clicking on the middle icon in the upper left margin. Your conference partner will then see all the content on your desktop that you also see.

Open settings during a conference

During a conference, you have further setting options that affect your camera and microphone. For example, you can switch off the sound during a conference if you are only interested in the image content or if you are already verbally connected to the other party. The same applies to the image content, of course, if you only need to discuss something with the other party but do not want any visual image transmission. To do this, simply click on the settings icon in the upper left corner of the screen and adjust the sound and image according to your wishes.

Add more participants to the conference

If you want to invite additional participants during a conference, simply click on the corresponding icon in the upper right corner of the screen. Then a small window opens with a list of all members of this case. Select the people you want to add to the conference and click on „add“.

End video conference

To leave a conference and return to the case, click the red phone icon in the upper right corner of the screen. When you leave the conference, the connection remains for the other participants. Each participant must therefore leave the conference independently if you want to end it completely.

Filter documents

If you want to access a specific document, you can simply use the filter to hide certain media, such as audio recordings or videos. You can change the view between list view and tile view in the document overview as you like.
