What if I Need to Leave My Virtual Booth During the Event?

You may need to leave your virtual booth during your event. If you need to take a break you have two options:

Put up an Away Message. There are a variety of ways you can put up an away message, from a handwritten note placed in front of the screen to sharing a video with a countdown timer of when you'll be back. Our recommendation is to create something digitally and share your screen with your away message.
See below for an example of what a digital away message might look like.
For more information on how to share your screen from your video chat, please click here.
Don't forget to mute yourself!

Tip: Include the time you will return in your Away Message. Don't forget to mention your time zone, as you may have guests from across the country.
Leave the video chat. If you need a longer break, it's best to click the Leave Video Chat button and exit the video portion of your booth.
BoothCentral also works on a cellphone, so, if you need to be mobile and aren't available for video chat, you are able to respond to chat messages from your phone. Make sure you are logged into BoothCentral from the browser of your phone, leave the video chat, but keep you eye on the text chat.
