Online Conferencing Information

Joining a Meeting Online

  1. Butte County employs the Skype system for conferences hosted by the county. There are two methods for joining a Conference hosted by Butte County. The preferred method is to join the conference online. The equipment needed would be a computer with internet access and a working headset and microphone. Open the email invitation for the conference and look for the Join Skype Meeting option.
  2. If your organization uses Lync/Skype the conference will open in your local client. Otherwise a new web page will open prompting you to join the conference.
  3. Type your name in the empty field and click to join the meeting. If you have not attended a Lync/Skype conference before there will be a checkbox to install the Skype Web App plug-in. Microsoft recommends installing the Skype Web App plug-in for the best experience. If you have questions regarding installing the plug-in please talk to your Computer Support team.
