As all tools vary in terms of their user descriptions, we've decided to provide you with an overview.
When you buy a licence to eyeson, you become a Licence Holder and can possess an eyeson licence alone or share it with other teammates.
Teammates get free accounts from the Licence Holder, who purchased a package with more than one host. All people with active eyeson accounts are Hosts.
Hosts can create new rooms, start calls or share an existing room with other hosts. Essentially, every host has their own access to the eyeson platform and can use the same features except that of the Licence Holder, who can manage their licenses.
Attention! A Licence Holder won't see rooms of other hosts that they create (except those they are sharing), as they would have their own eyeson account as long as the Licence Holder has them in their licence list.
It's important to know, from the room perspective, we distinguish between two different roles of hosts. Let's give you an example.
Imagine you bought a licence with more than one host and assigned other people to your licence list. Now you want to create a room, here is how you can distinguish different peoples' roles:
Host (Owner) of the Room
Is a person who created a room. He/she can start calls on their own and invite other people to share this room together (members). The owner can change the room's settings (decide if live streaming, recording, layout settings and video reactions are activated or not in the room) or delete the room altogether.
Host (Member) of the Room
This is a user with an active eyeson account, who was invited by the owner to the room to share it. A member can also be removed from the room by the owner. He/she can also start calls on their own without owner participation.
Now imagine a host or room member started a video meeting, here is how the roles will look:
Video Call Roles
Host / Members of the Call
All people with an active eyeson account can start video calls on their own, create as many rooms as they want and share those rooms with others. Moreover, they can always access the history of their calls, where they can find shareable snapshots and recordings.
Guest of the Call
A guest can be invited to a video meeting by any host. Guests do not need an eyeson account, and no downloads or installs are required. They can only enter a video call they are invited to if a host or member is already present, as they do not have access to rooms without a licence holder.
