How much does GoToConference cost?

The on-boarding kit with your audio, webcam Chromebox and keyboard devices costs $999. After that the subscription fee is $99/mo.

What is the return policy for GoToConference?

We stand behind our products and services. Therefore, if GoToConference is not performing as it should, we will do our due diligence to rectify the situation.

  • Shipping issues: If your system is damaged during shipping or parts are missing, please contact Customer Support within 30 days of receiving it so that we can replace the missing or damaged parts.

What is the attendee limit for GoToConference?

If you are hosting a meeting using GoToConference, then your attendee limit will be the same as it is with your other meetings (i.e., it depends what subscription plan you are on). See What is the maximum number of people who can attend my session? for more info.

Can I share my screen using GoToConference?

No, you cannot share content directly from GoToConference. Instead, you can bring your computer or mobile device with you to the conference room and join the session as an attendee. Then use the toolbar to make that device the presenter and share your content from there.

Why don't I see the GoToMeeting Home screen?

If you aren't seeing the GoToMeeting Home screen, check the following:

  • Is the display powered on?
  • Is the Chromebox powered off? If so, press the power button on the front-left corner of the box to turn it on so that the button lights up.
  • Is the right input source selected on your display? Double-check which input (e.g., "HDMI 1") the Chromebox is plugged into on the display, and then make sure that same input is selected as the source. Try using the Source button on your remote control to see and change input settings.

How can I schedule a meeting?

It is not possible to schedule a meeting from the GoToConference system. Instead, you must schedule a meeting from your computer or mobile device.

If you've already scheduled a meeting, you can find the meeting ID as follows:

1. Log in at https://global.gotomeeting.com.

2. Click the Edit icon next to the desired meeting, then take note of the 9-digit meeting ID.

3. In the GoToConference room, enter the 9-digit meeting ID and press Enter.

4. Click start the meeting, then enter your organizer credentials.

How can I start a meeting?

You can start a meeting easily by entering the 9-digit meeting ID or GoToMeet.Me page name, then clicking start the meeting on the following screen. Note that the meeting must already be scheduled. Learn more.

What's my meeting ID?

The 9-digit meeting ID assigned to each session is only known by the organizer. The best way to get the information you need is to contact the organizer of your meeting directly (we can’t give this info out for security reasons). Learn more.

What's my username and password?

In order to start your meeting, you'll need your email address and password. If you are just joining a meeting, then you do not need any login information.

Also see: 

Why am I stuck on "Waiting for organizer to start the meeting"?

This means that you successfully joined the meeting but you arrived before the organizer, so you are waiting for them to start the meeting. Learn more.

If you are the organizer, click start the meeting to launch it for everyone.

Why can't anyone see my webcam feed?

Can't see yourself? Check the following:

  • Is the Webcam icon in your toolbar glowing green? If it is gray, click it so that it glows green.
  • If that doesn't work, try opening the Webcam setting in the toolbar by clicking the Settings icon and selecting the Webcam tab.
    • If you can see your own webcam feed of the conference room in the Preview pane, try turning webcam sharing off and then on again.
    • If you can't see your own webcam feed in the Preview pane, double-check that the webcam's USB cable is properly plugged into the Chromebox.

Why can't I hear anyone?

Can't hear anyone? Check the following:

  • Is the volume turned up?
  • Is the Revolabs device powered on?
  • Is the USB cable connecting the Revolabs device and the Chromebox properly plugged in on both ends?

Why can't anyone hear me?

Having trouble being heard by others? Check the following:

  • Are you muted in the Web App toolbar? If the Mic icon is glowing red, click it and it will unmute you and glow green.
  • Is the Revolabs device powered on?
  • Is the Revolabs device muted? If the light strip on the box flows red, press the mute button on the top (between the volume buttons) so that the lights glow green.
  • Is the USB cable connecting the Revolabs device and the Chromebox properly plugged in on both ends?

Why does my audio sound far away or distorted?

If others report that your audio sounds distant or "underwater", it's possible that your audio is being picked by your webcam instead of the Revolabs device. This can happen if the Chromebox doesn't recognize the Revolabs device as your default for audio.

To fix this, you can do a fresh setup. This will clear any "preferred" default audio devices and select the correct ones the next time around.

1. Turn off the Chromebox.

2. Unplug all audio and video devices from the Chromebox's USB ports.

3. Turn the Chromebox back on.

4. Follow these set-up instructions to plug in each device back in, ensuring that you plug in the Revolabs audio device last to force the Google Chrome OS to register the last connected device as default.

3. Join or start a meeting and verify that audio correctly streams from the Revolabs device.
