This lets you set sound to off (currently only used when an attendee is granted voice by the organiser)

Smart minimize

You can minimize the Timeqube anytime with the smart minimize function. Your Timeqube will come back to your last dragged screen position when the organiser starts the meeting.

Exit room

You can always exit the room you are in and connect to another one including your own.

Organiser or Attendee?

In Timeqube online you will want to do one of two things:

  • Use your Timeqube to join a meeting someone else organised
  • Timebox your own meeting/event as an organiser
  • Understanding Rooms

    Rooms are essential in understanding how Timeqube Online works. Every organiser has one room with the unique Room ID. Anyone’s colorful Timeqube can be connected to any room if they have the ID. Once in a room, room organisers gets to control time for all connected Timequbes.

    Attendees

    Joining someone else’s meeting room

    If you’re just connecting your Timeqube to another organiser’s room, you need your email (the one you signed up with) and the Room ID from the organiser.

    If you come from an invite, you will see organiser's room ID in the invitation email you received as well as on the downloads page.

    Organisers

    Organising meetings with Timeqube Desktop Controller

    Click TIMEQUBE logo on the qube (or open controller with the tray icon) to open desktop controller. You need to log in there only once. This is your own Timeqube room you will use to invite attendees / speakers to your meetings / events or just use the Timeqube yourself as a productivity / rehearsal tool.

    Inviting attendees

    Using the invite button in the Desktop Controller you can invite as many attendees as you want. Just type their E-mail addresses separated by comma. Everyone will receive beautiful invitation email with the vital information on how to connect to your room.

    Giving open-microphone time to attendees

    Using the microphone icon in the controller you can give timeboxed open-mic to an attendee. All the connected Timequbes will show attendee's name, remaining time and the profile image if uploaded by the attendee. Customising open-mic time and uploading profile images can be done using the Desktop Controller Settings.

    Buzzing attendees

    You can buzz any attendee using the red alarm icon next to attendee name in the controller. Their Timeqube will buzz. The sound itself is crafted to be clearly audible yet not annoying.
