HOA app developer wishlist....

Too often there are difficulties getting my guests to add +Moritz Tolxdorff 's Lower Third (via toolbox)  when they join. 

I'd love it if there was an app that allowed me, the host, to label my guests as a fall back.

HOA Questions & Help  - 
 
I have a webinar for a number of clients happening this Thursday PM. I normally use GoToMeeting. Works well. I've really wanted to force myself to learn and use HOA because I used Google Apps all the time. In fact my webinar is about using Google Drive. 

Here is my dilemma. 

I created an HOA event and invited a number of clients. 

1. Yet when I done a few practice rounds (test) it seems confusing for the end user. 

2. I had an employee try it out. I clicked to start the Broadcast and waited for him to join. He could not join until I started recording. 

3. Also it wanted me to invite people to join, when I already did this in my initial invitation. These seemed confusing. 

4. When my employee final did see me (once I went "on air) he said there was a real delay when viewing my screen. I had just tested GoToMeeting a few minutes before this and the screen share was perfect. Most of the time I've tried HOA, there is a delay for sharing a screen. 

So I guess my question is...1) how can I make sure it is easy for people to join my meeting on Thursday when it is time and 2) How can I make sure there is no delay in showing my screen. 3) How do folks joining the call show their faces (video). 4) When creating the time, for a 45 minute webinar, it creates a 4 hour and 45 minute duration. I've tried a dozen times to make the webinar 45 minutes.

+David Chism I would strongly suggest you check out the user2user-Live community. There are folks there who will engage with you directly to show you the ropes. It sounds like you are missing some steps. Once you have set up the HOA and you have not yet hit the start button your users should be able to join you in the "green room." you should include the intended participants in your circles and they, in turn, should include you in theirs. That should improve your chances of successfully bringing them in.

Tips for HOAs  - 
 
Hangouts on Air and Your G+ Community...
Used properly, Community Centered HOAs can add great value to your community.

Read more below and watch the linked free broadcast to see what we're talking about utilizing a valuable/unique implementation of HOAs in a Public Community setting.
Ronnie Bincer originally shared:
 
Do you use Hangouts on Air as part of your Community Strategy?
Why would you want to use Community Centered HOAs?

Is your Google+ Public Community growing like you'd want it to be, or as engaged as you'd like? If not, utilizing Community Centered HOAs (CCHOAs) can make a big difference towards those goals.

When you utilize Community Centered Hangouts on Air you can:
► Increase the Size of your community
► Add value to your Brand
► Improve your community's Engagement
► Increase the Value of your community
► Help Focus the community
► Fully realize the Relationship Opportunities communities offer

Hangouts on Air (HOA) can add great value to the relationships we are fostering within Google Plus Communities. That value can be helpful to existing and new members of the community.

Live Discussion on Why CCHOAs are so Powerful
We'll be having a live video broadcast (HOA) discussing the use of CCHOAs within a community and why they seem to add so much momentum to a community on Tuesday April 28, 2015 @ 4pm EDT. Here's the link to sign up to view the free broadcast (either live or the recorded version) http://goo.gl/I8V3UA

Hope you can make it live and will add questions/comments for us to feature as part of the broadcast, but if you must miss the live event, you can always watch the free video replay on that same HOA Event page: http://goo.gl/I8V3UA

Add the Community Centered HOA concept to your Community!
Turn your Google+ Community into the thriving place it was meant to be by employing the techniques and concepts we'll be highlighting in this Scheduled HOA Event: http://goo.gl/I8V3UA RSVP there.

Quick question:  If I want to schedule a Hangout on Air for a later date, where is the link I use to mail to my email list subscribers?  And they don't need any sort of special driver to watch, right? Thanks.

I need some serious help. I'm attempting to do the Hangouts on Air. I had scheduled one for tonight, and it was to be me and about three of my friends. I was unable to connect them. I was the only one allowed in the hangout. I have NO idea what I'm doing. I'm the greenest noob you'll ever meet. 

HELP!

+Marcus Moore if you use the "Invite People" dialog box within the HOA interface and have invited the right 'version' of your filmstrip guests there (many many people have too many accounts), then you did what needs to be done. Then the issue is on them not finding the place to see the invite. Try telling them to go to your profile or page (whichever account is hosting the HOA) and refresh the page after you've issued the invitation. They should see the "Join Hangout" button there. Much more on how to do all this with my Intro to Hangouts course at www.AllAboutHangouts.com

I have a recurring problem with HOA that has happened 3 - 5 times in the last 8 weeks. The HOA doesn't have the "Start" button to begin the meeting and the recording.

{screencast below}

I can open the HOA, invite guests into the HOA, we can all see and hear each other. Everything seems as it should be,. Then I notice that the usual "Start" button that would normally begin the "live" portion of the meeting (and the recording) is gone. It's simply not there.

I tried exiting the HOA and returning. I tried refreshing the window. Nothing else. I can't figure out the pattern; sometimes it works as it should ("Start" button is visible) and sometimes it isn't.

n00b question - what is the best way to invite people INSIDE the HOA ahead of time? It's easy to invite viewers, but I don't see a way to invite participants until after the hangout has started.

And as +Carl Kidd said getting newbies into a practice HOA before your broadcast is really essential to a smooth event.

Yes, the confirm is missing. When doing a HOA from my gmail account, it's there. And I'll until two weeks ago it was there for my GoogleForWork account too. I've been doing hoa weekly since they first were released. And this behavior is the on 3 different computers.

About this community

Hi, I'm Billy Wilson the creator of this group, I hope you find it to be of value to you. My HOA is That Show with Billy Wilson (TSBW). Please keep on topic, spam isn't tolerated. In your posts to the community please try to indicate that it is related to Hangouts On Air or else it'll have a higher chance of being removed. Also, don't post more than once a day.

I HAVE HIT A BRICK WALL...
I wish to start a hangout on air from my G+ business page so it links to my business YouTube channel. I'd like to create a circle from my business page and add non gmail email accounts but I can't seem to add non gmail emails. 

I know it's possible to add non gmail emails to a circle from my G+ personal page.

Can anyone please help me out?

THANKS! Sandy

Hi there! 
Could any of you help with this problem: 
I have used HAO several times with 4-6 participants, and until recently the person who spoke appeared "full screen" on my computer and on the video afterwards. And the video showed all participants in small windows at the bottom of the screen: 
Last time I recorded with 2, the speaker got full screen, but the participants at the bottom disappeared: 
 And today when I recorded a HAO, the video only shows me and not the other participant at all: 

I have not changed any settings, and I cannot see, where I possibly should be able to change these things!
It's very important, so any help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks!

Community Centered Hangouts on Air - why you'll want to use them
This public HOA training session will take a close look at proven techniques to build an engaged community utilizing the power of Hangouts on Air (HOA).

We'll be joined by +Pat Richley-Erickson &+Russ Worthington who have taken this technique to a fine art and increased engagement and numbers of members in their DearMYRTLE's Genealogy Community using the power of Community Centered Hangouts on Air.

Also in the filmstrip will be +Heather Kraafter &+Michael Daniels, both of whom are part of the team that developed the methods this Public Community started out with before they fully refined it for their own purposes.

All those listed above are part of the Hangout Mastery private membership community where wonderful things like this are developed and tested. To join us in the private membership visit www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery

By the time this HOA goes live we will have completed our private training on the why and how to make this work inside the Hangout Mastery areas and the video of that session will be archived for all existing and future members to watch as often as they like.
