Video Call and Screen Share

maaiiconnect lets you have more personal interactions with visitors, customers, and fellow staff members through 1-on-1 video calls and screen sharing. With these features, you and your called party can see one another while having more interactive discussions and making sure you're both on the same page.

Starting a Video Call

You can start a video call with a customer, visitor, or staff member by clicking on the video call icon on the top right corner of the chatroom panel.

Start a Video Call

If the called party is a fellow staff member, their Workspace will display an incoming video call screen. The call screen also gives them the option to decline the call or pick it up as an audio call only.

Incoming Video Call

Switching from Voice Call to Video Call

While in a voice call with a visitor or a fellow staff member, you can switch to video call by clicking on the video call icon on your call screen.

  • Make sure that your browser has permission to access your camera. Check if your browser displays a pop-up dialog message that requires your action.

On Safari web browsers:

  • A pop-up dialog message will display the following: [your maaiiconnect service account ] wants to: Use your camera
  • Click Allow to proceed.

The video call will start as soon as your camera has been enabled.

You can also resize the video call window, or minimize it to the size of a widget.

To stop the video call, click on the video call icon again.

To end the video call, click on the end call icon.

Using the Screen Share Feature

While in a video call with a visitor or a fellow staff member, you or your called party can initiate screen sharing by clicking on the screen share icon on your video call screen.

  • Make sure that your browser has permission to access the contents of your screen. Check if your browser displays a pop-up dialog message that requires your action.

It then provides several options, such as your entire screen, an application window, and other open browsers.

  • Select which screen from the available options you would like share.
  • Click Share.

B. On Safari browsers:

A pop-up dialog message will display the following: Allow [your maaiiconnect service account] to observe your screen? You can change this setting Safari Websites preferences.
