The event ended unexpectedly:

There is a No Items message in the widget

Most likely the Widget Bot user does not have access to the presentation. The Qumu Cloud Security Admin should add a corresponding group to the Widget Bot user.

Some items are displayed, but not all the expected items:

The presentation may not match the query used to create the widget. Check the query rules in the Qumu Cloud content portal.

The missing presentation may have a restriction that prevents it from displaying. An IP or group restriction would cause this behavior.

Items not displayed in Qumu Cloud Viewer Portal:

If the viewer is not logged in, login. If the missing items are then displayed, the presentation may have a restriction requiring login, or the Viewer Portal site requires login.



What link do I share with the viewers of the event?

  1. You may share a link with the viewers in advance once the meeting is scheduled in Zoom. To copy the link, follow the instructions in the CAPTURE A SHARABLE LINK IN QUMU section.
  2. Once the event has started, copy the link from the Zoom meeting UI. Instructions are available in the CAPTURE A SHARABLE LINK IN ZOOM section.
