How to add a video link to your settings

How to add a video link for teams or zoom to your settings.

In today's pandemic of COVID-19 remote counselling by video conferencing is becoming not only popular, but imperative to the smooth running of any counselling or client well-being service.

Uniti has solved this issue by allowing your staff to enter into Uniti, their own personal teams or zoom link.  This link will then be sent to both your client and your staff member's calendar manager to allow a seamless connection for their next online meeting.

How does it work?

Both links contain a reference to the meeting.  In each of these links there is a password or unique code for that meeting.  This code is automatically changed to make sure that you and your client can only connect together with this unique code, ensuring privacy for both.  If you are the practitioner, then please make sure you are logged into your zoom or teams account before starting your meeting session to ensure that you are in control and recognised as the organiser of the meeting.

Uniti will recognise either a zoom link or an MS Teams link and will update this with a unique code each time a meeting in Uniti is organised.  This will ensure privacy for both you and your client.


Here's how to do it,
just follow these simple instructions.....

  • Click on the meetings tab on the left
