Using “Create a room”
Easily create Whereby rooms using a straightforward 4-step UI flow without the need to generate an API key.
The fastest way to get started with creating Whereby Embedded rooms is through the “Create a room” flow, which can be launched from the “Get started” and “Rooms” sections in your Whereby Embedded account's Dashboard.
First screen of the "Create Room" flow, allowing customers to create a room with no code.
The wizard consists of 4 self-explanatory steps:
- 1.Pick your preferred room size: small or large;
- 2.Set up recording;
- 3.Set up streaming;
- 4.Set an optional room prefix and an expiration date;
And that's all there is to it!
If you want to review these room details again at a later point in time, you can find an overview of all rooms you've created (incl. demo rooms and rooms generated through the API) in the new “Rooms” section that's linked from the sidebar.
While the “Create a room” flow is perfect for getting started, and is probably sufficient if you only need to create a handful of meeting rooms, we recommend looking into the REST API documentation to generate rooms on-the-fly, and unlock the full power of Whereby Embedded.
Creating rooms via the API, produces a room with a unique URL and a limited lifespan. There's no need to worry about meetings conflicting or rooms being used for other purposes after the intended session.
endDateproperty is used to indicate the time at which the room will be marked for deactivation. It does not indicate when a meeting will end and remove participants.
