•
Use the TeamViewer meeting function, e.g. for training sessions.
•
Use the meeting apps for Android and iOS to participate in a meeting while being on the

About the manual
This manual describes the use of TeamViewer for meetings.
If you are looking for help about the TeamViewer remote control functions, please read the
TeamViewer 7 Remote Control Manual available separately on our website.

Instructions are given on the assumption that the TeamViewer full version is already installed on
your computer. If you need help installing the program, read section 6, page 44 first.
The Mac OS and Linux version are mostly identical to the Windows version, although some of the
functions are not yet available. Feel free to use our free trial versions to get an idea of the various
functions and contact our support team if you need further assistance.

2.1
How TeamViewer works
With TeamViewer, you can easily and quickly start meetings or join them. With the use of a Meeting
ID (which is automatically generated by TeamViewer and forwarded by the initiator), participants
can connect to a meeting. The minimum requirement for connecting is the TeamViewer full version
or a corresponding module and the Meeting ID.
All TeamViewer connections are highly encrypted and are thus protected from being accessed by
third parties. For detailed technical information regarding connections, security and data privacy in
TeamViewer, see the security statement on our website
at: http://www.teamviewer.com/en/products/security.aspx.

Joining a meeting
If you want to join a meeting, you have several options:
Use either
•
the link for joining meetings which you received from the initiator,
TeamViewer 7 Manual Meeting
Page 12 of 60
Meeting
•
the TeamViewer QuickJoin module,
•
the TeamViewer full version, or
•
your web browser.
The easiest and quickest way to join a meeting is to use the link from an invitation message. No
additional data has to be entered and you are connected directly to the meeting.
3.3.1
Joining a meeting via a link/web browser
You received an invitation message with a link for participating in a meeting.
If you received an invitation message for a meeting, it contains a link in the form
https://go.teamviewer.com/mXXXXXXXX (each "X" corresponds to a number between 1-9). By
following the link, the web browser will open and you are connected to the meeting without the
need to enter additional data.
In this process, the TeamViewer QuickJoin module is temporarily executed on your computer. It
already contains the Meeting ID and, if necessary, the meeting password and connects automatically
to the meeting. For more information about the TeamViewer QuickJoin module, see section 5.2,
page 41.
You received a Meeting ID and want to connect to the meeting via web browser.
To join a meeting via a web browser, follow these steps:
1. Open the following URL in your web browser: https://go.teamviewer.com.
2. Enter the Meeting ID in the Meeting-ID text field.
3. Click the Join meeting button.
4. If the initiator specified a meeting password, enter the meeting password in the subsequent
dialog. Confirm your entry by clicking on the Log On button.
→ The Meeting window will open.
5. You see the screen of the presenter and can interact with the participants via the
TeamViewer Panel (see section 3.7, page 21).
Note: If you cannot execute any other application on your computer, click the browser version link
before executing step 3. The Meeting window then opens in the browser. This method requires the
installation of Flash version 10 or higher and is limited in its scope of functions compared to the
application-based methods.
3.3.2
Joining a meeting with the TeamViewer QuickJoin module
With the TeamViewer QuickJoin module, you can easily and quickly join meetings.
To join a meeting with the TeamViewer QuickJoin module, follow these steps:
1. Start the QuickJoin module.
2. Enter the Meeting ID in the Meeting ID text field.
3. Underneath it, enter your name in the Your name text field.
4. Click the Join button.

be shown.
6. You can see the screen of the presenter and can interact with the participants using the
TeamViewer Panel.
3.3.3
Joining a meeting with the TeamViewer full version
Another option of joining meetings is to use the TeamViewer full version. As a meeting participant,
it does not offer any additional functions compared to the QuickJoin module.
To join a meeting with the TeamViewer full version, follow these steps:
1. Start TeamViewer.
2. Click the Meeting tab.
3. In the Join Meeting area, enter the Meeting ID in the Meeting ID text field.
4. Underneath it, enter your name in the Your name text field.
5. Click the Join meeting button.
6. If the initiator specified a meeting password, enter it in the subsequent dialog. Confirm your
entry by clicking on the Log On button.
→ The Meeting Room window will open.
→ If the initiator starts the meeting or it is already under way, the screen of the presenter
will be shown.
7. You can see the screen of the presenter and can interact with the participants using the
TeamViewer Panel.
3.4

Managing scheduled meetings
You can easily manage your scheduled meetings from

meetings are linked to a TeamViewer account and are
not stored locally on a computer. This means that all
your scheduled meetings are available as soon as you
log in to any TeamViewer using your account.
Centrally managing all scheduled meetings.
Example: You are scheduling a meeting on your desktop
computer. However, you want to use your laptop to
host it since it features a webcam. For this reason, log in
to TeamViewer with your TeamViewer account on your
laptop and the meeting scheduled on your desktop
computer will be available.
That is, you can start a meeting from any computer,
regardless of the computer on which it was scheduled.
To manage your scheduled meetings, follow these steps:
1. Start TeamViewer.
2. Click the Meeting tab.
TeamViewer 7 Manual Meeting

TeamViewer 7 Manual Meeting
Page 17 of 60
Meeting
In the My Meetings dialog, you can schedule and manage meetings.
3.4.3
Recurring meetings
A useful function for the scheduling of a meeting is the
Save meeting for later reuse option in the Schedule a
Meeting dialog.
If this option is activated for a meeting, the meeting is
permanently retained in My Meetings. Hence, the
settings you performed and the Meeting ID are being
saved.
Scheduling recurring meetings.
This offers the following advantages:
•
Participants have to be invited only once.
•
The Meeting ID does not have to be communicated repeatedly.
•
Regular meetings can be started faster.
If the option is not activated, the meeting cannot be used again and is removed from My Meetings
after a certain period of time.
Example:
To discuss the tasks for the week and exchange information, you want to host an online meeting in
your department at the beginning of every week. Hence, you are scheduling a meeting for next
Monday and activate the Save meeting for later reuse check box. At the end, you send an invitation
to your department. In the future, all the participants can connect to your meeting at any time using
the same link and Meeting ID in each case.
3.5
The role distribution in a meeting
There are different roles in a meeting. TeamViewer differentiates between Organizer, Presenter and
Participant.
3.5.1
The organizers
The organizer takes over the control in a meeting. The initiator of a meeting is always an organizer.
The organizer can assign most of the rights that provides him/her with the opportunity to ensure
TeamViewer 7 Manual Meeting
Page 18 of 60
Meeting
that the meeting runs smoothly. The organizer role cannot be dropped (i.e. participants who have
been named as organizers remain organizers until the end of the meeting).Within a meeting it is also
possible to name several organizers.
3.5.2
The presenter
The presenter transfers his or her screen in a meeting. At the beginning of a meeting, it is always the
initiator. The presenter role can be passed on to any meeting participant by the organizer or
presenter. Each meeting always has only one presenter since only one participant can transfer his or
her screen at a time.
3.5.3
The participants
A participant in a meeting is anyone who connects to a meeting.
Each participant can be assigned another role as well as certain rights by the presenter and
organizers.
3.5.4
The rights of meeting participants
During a meeting, the presenter and the organizers have the option of assigning rights to individual
participants. Using the Participants widget allows restricting the actions of participants or assigning
additional rights to them.
Click the display name of the participants and enable or disable the desired option.
The organizer, presenter or a participant has the following rights and possibilities:
Description
Leave meeting
Leave the ongoing meeting (the meeting does
not end).
Send chat
message...
Send participants a chat message.

Adding computers/contacts
You can add computers or contacts either by TeamViewer ID
(computers) or TeamViewer account (contacts).
Contacts may include multiple computers. This is the case
when a contact is logged into multiple TeamViewer modules.
Another advantage of creating a contact is that it allows you
to connect with the same person regardless of what
computer he/she is using.
TeamViewer IDs, on the other hand, are associated with only
one computer. You can connect with a computer, but you do
not know who is operating it.
Connecting with a TeamViewer ID might be a good idea if:
− The other side is not logged in to a TeamViewer
account.
− The computer is unattended (such as a server).
− You are connecting to your own computer.
You can add both TeamViewer accounts
as well as TeamViewer IDs to Computers &
Contacts.
To create a new computer/contact, follow these steps:
1. Select the group to which you wish to add a new computer/contact.
2. Click the
Add computer or
Add contact button.

modules are available on our website, but not relevant for meetings.
To download a module, or for a quick overview of what is available,
visit http://teamviewer.com/en/download.
5.1
The TeamViewer full version
You can use this module to start meetings,
schedule meetings or join meetings.
This module is described in detail
in section 2.2, page 6.
The main window of the TeamViewer full version.

5.2
The TeamViewer QuickJoin module
TeamViewer QuickJoin is an application in the form of a single
executable file that was developed specifically for participating
in meetings or presentations.
The participants start TeamViewer QuickJoin and enter the
connection data of the meeting (Meeting ID and password, if
necessary), which they receive from the initiator, to connect to
the meeting. In addition, you can type your name in the Your
name text field, which every participant can see during a
meeting.
Participants connect to meetings via
TeamViewer QuickJoin.
Note: For connections via TeamViewer QuickJoin, all of the usual meeting functions available in
the TeamViewer full version are available as well, such as VoIP, Video transfer, Whiteboard and
Chat.
On our website, you can create your individual TeamViewer QuickJoin that can be designed with
your welcome text and your logo as well as additional useful functions (see section 5.5, page 42).
5.3
TeamViewer Portable
TeamViewer Portable generally comprises all of the functions of the TeamViewer full version but is
not installed and can therefore be started from any data carrier (such as an USB stick or a CD).
Additional configuration information is available in the download package. TeamViewer Portable is
included with the TeamViewer Premium and the TeamViewer Corporate license.
5.4
TeamViewer on mobile devices (Android, iOS)
TeamViewer is also available for mobile devices.
With iOS or Android devices, you have the capability of joining meetings. In the process, you can
view screen contents that are being presented. Additional features such as chat and for iOS also VoIP
are available. However, you can only join meetings, not host a meeting.
The “TeamViewer for Meetings“ app required for this purpose can be downloaded for Android via
the Android Market and for iOS via the AppStore of Apple.
Further information about these applications is available in the apps themselves or on our website
under http://teamviewer.com/en/download/mobile.aspx.
