To make an appointment click the blue button on the “My Event” page of the virtual attendee hub.
Click Create Appointment at the Top Left Corner
Under Appointment Type Click Event Appointment
To Add Attendees you can scroll through the list or type in the search bar. Once you have clicked the attendees that you would like to invite to the meeting make sure to click the blue button at the button left of the screen
Then pick your time, add in a subject and description of the meeting and Send the appointment invitation by clicking the blue button at the bottom left corner of the screen.
**TIP** Make sure “Attendees can join this appointment virtually” is clicked. This is how the zoom link will generate in the invite
Once you’ve sent the meeting request, the recipient will receive an email like this. To accept or deny the meeting the recipient will be brought back to the virtual attendee hub solidify their decision.
After the appointment has been approved a zoom link will generate and you can add the meeting to your calendar. Zoom phone numbers are not provided as the system will not generate them, so you will need to use an alternate route in this situation.
I would still schedule the appointment and in the description of the meeting inform all attendees that you will be calling them or using an alternative approach.
June 25, 2020 – Update
The impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt by individuals and communities around the country. We hope our industry partners are faring well. In accordance with state and local requirements, Advantage has taken steps to protect the safety of its employees.
Currently no more than 40% of staff is working in our offices at one time, with the rest working remotely. Additionally, if outside visits are necessary, they will be scheduled by appointment only.
General employee business travel has been suspended, but limited essential travel is permitted for our Member Sales team.
There continues to be no disruption to daily business activity, and communication to traders and support staff remains seamless. We will continue to post updates as this situation continues to evolve.
Advantage’s primary revenue source is derived from charging the member a percentage of the gross invoice amount based on the categories below. This service charge will appear on the transmittal unless the program is either deferred or non-adder.
