In order to maintain control of a room name or customize a room (Pro feature) you must first Create it on your account. When you create a room you're assuming ownership of the virtual space, and you'll have the ability to:
- Lock the room
- Kick any unwanted visitors
- Customize the background, logo, and knock page (Pro features)
- Use the room name for all future meetings
The first thing that you'll need to do to Create a room is Sign up for an appear.in account. To sign up, simply go to our Sign up page and enter your email address! We'll ask you a few questions about how you're using appear.in, and also to confirm your email address.
After confirming your email, you'll be taken to the Dashboard. The Dashboard is where you can Create new rooms, and also lists any rooms that you Own, or that you're a Member of.
To Create a new room, click the Create a room button. This opens a box where you can type in your desired room name, and Create it under your account!
Free users can only create one room on their account. If you want to create more than one room, you'll need to subscribe to our Pro service.
If you are no longer in need of a certain room and room name, you can delete the room from your rooms list. Make sure you are signed into your owner profile and navigate to your rooms list at https://appear.in. From here you can click on the three dots next to the room name then select "Delete" to delete it.
You'll be asked to confirm that you want to delete the room before it's completely removed. When this action is complete all room customization will be removed as well.
To change your room name you will first need to delete the unwanted room. After you delete the unwanted room you can Create the room name that you want by following the steps above.
Transferring a room from one account to another is a two-step process, which involves Deleting the room from one account, and then Creating it with the desired account. It's usually easiest to do this sitting next to each other, or while you're in an unrelated appear.in room.
For the account that's Deleting the room:
Log in to the account and go to
- Click the three dots next to the room that you want to Delete In the "Your rooms" list then select the "Delete"
- Confirm that you want to Delete the room to complete the process
For the account that's re-creating the room:
- Log in to the account, and wait for the first account to Delete the room
- Go to www.appear.in and use the Create a room button to re-create the room on the new account
This will make the new account the owner of the room. At this point, they'll have full access to the room Settings, and the ability to upgrade it to a Pro Plan if they so wish!
