  4. Click Devices in the left sidebar and verify that each user has an assigned device. If you need to add a device to a user, click Add Device.
  5. Click Users in the left sidebar again and verify that each remote user has a green flower as their product. If the green flower does not appear, it might be because the user already has GoToMeeting. Only one Meetings experience can be setup per email address.

4Promotion FAQs

Here are some common questions about our 90-day “Meetings Free” promotion.

Show All | Hide All

An admin or super admin would need to disable Allow Web Login. Please note that this would remove the user's ability to log in to GoTo Connect entirely. We do not currently have a way to remove their access to just the meeting portion of the product.
Please contact Customer Support and ask for the product to be turned off.
As long as you set them up correctly (see step 2 above), they will also receive free meetings during the 90-day window.
If this is the case, no additional licenses will be added for those users because you can only assign one license per user/email address.
Your contract will transition to a month-to-month contract, and you will continue to receive free meetings for the full 90-day window.

As part of this unique offering, we are upgrading low-usage seats to regular seats to give them full access to GoTo Connect during the 90-day window for K-12 customers only.
Reach out to your respective Sales Representative for assistance with this.
