While the rest of the world is concerned about a pandemic, the members of our community seem more concerned about the fact that our meetings are spread out among two different platforms, Ring Central and Zoom. Well this certainly isn’t a reason to worry at all. It’s a great thing! I mean the fact that we’re on multiple platforms, not the pandemic. That’s a horrible thing, and I hope you’re all social distancing and wearing masks.
Speaking of the pandemic, Covid-19 has made video meetings a regular thing for millions of people making us pioneers in this industry. As a result, many of those who provide meetings platforms are seemingly no longer stuck to the concept that if you’re not having a business meeting then they don’t want you around. As a matter of fact, some of them are even asking us for our business now. I think it’s fantastic that our community is bigger than just one platform!
On top of that, we get closer and closer to our goal of having meetings created for us, by us every day.
You never know, we may soon be stretched across three or four different platforms. I think it’s a wonderful thing, and you should too! I’ll see you around maybe on Zoom, maybe on Ring Central or maybe even elsewhere. You never can tell in these unprecedented times!
This is taken from a support ticket submitted on Swirl+Social. President Slip replied and wanted to share the response with you as others might be having a similar problem.
I have access to the same two meetings for months I join this site to get access to more meetings but not happening. Help!

Hi Ithurtstolook NYC, I am sorry you are having problems getting access to the rooms. If it is that you can’t find a room or meeting, then we do many ways to help find out what those numbers and links are. First, we offer a chat directory/ room listings group. You can join by clicking room listings at the top of the page. Also at the the top of every page within Swirl+ there is a link to the Groups section. A lot of the zoom/ring central meetings also have groups there where they will post room numbers. Finally, go to the members section (a link is at the top of each page) and add friends. This is the best way to keep up with everything in our community. By adding friends, everything they post on Swirl+ will start to show up on your activity feed connecting you to more people and exposing you to more places to get information on where to find the meetings online. These meetings are run on the zoom or ring central platforms, but they are often shut down abruptly and have to change. We hope these resources we have made available help out!
