Feature Sets: Control how folks use join.me

In a BUSINESS account, Feature Sets define "who can do what, and how" in join.me.

Create a Feature Set

We start you out with a default Feature Set, but you can always create your own – as many as you'd like.

  1. On the join.me website, log in to your BUSINESS account and click Users. The Admin console is displayed.
  2. In the Admin console on the Admin settings tab, click New Feature Set.
  3. Define features and settings as described at the bottom of this article under About the settings.
  4. Save your changes.

Assign a Feature Set

After creating Feature Sets, you must assign them to users.

  • When you have only one Feature Set, all users are assigned to the Default Feature Set.
  • When you have multiple Feature Sets, you can choose which set to apply during the process of creating new users (individually or bulk): Add users.

Change the Feature Set assigned to users

  1. On the Users page, select any number of users. The Change Feature Set option is shown in the top menu.
  2. Click Change Feature Set. The Change Feature Set dialog box is displayed.
  3. Choose a new Feature Set and click Change Feature Set.

Users must log out of join.me for the new Feature Set to be applied.
