Security: Please set a password for each meeting to ensure that the event can only be accessed by the people you want there.
Alternative host: If more than one responsible party from Kempten UAS is attending a meeting, you should designate an “alternative host”, who is granted the same rights and can easily start and run the meeting in your pace, e.g. if you fall ill or need a stand-in. (All accounts based on our site licence can use this function!)
