Add Live Collaboration To Your Website
You can now easily add support for live collaboration (screen sharing, video conferencing, audio conferencing, chat, and more) to your website in minutes using our new integration feature. Our integration feature allows your users to start live-collaboration sessions directly from your website without needing to install any additional software on their computers. Other users on your website will be able to join your live-collaboration sessions from any device with a web browser without needing to install any additional software. Best of all, your users will not need to manually click on any share links or enter any share codes to join your live-collaboration sessions: they will be automatically connected when your sessions start.
The requirements for integrating our live-collaboration platform with your website are:
- You must be able to modify your website to add a small snippet of code (see the Integration section below for a sample snippet).
- Your website must be secure (the URL of the page you are integrating with must use
- Your users must be using a modern browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari). Viewing from mobile and tablet devices is supported, but sharing is not currently supported.
Integrating Screenleap's live-collaboration platform with your website is easy: all you need to do is
- 1) specify the URL of your website in the integration page,
- 2) customize what features you want to use from the integration settings page, and
- 3) add a snippet of code to your website.
An example code snippet:
Please note that the code snippets for presenters and viewers are slightly different. You need to make sure that you include the correct code snippet depending on whether your users will be joining as a presenter or a viewer. Please see the integration page for the specific code snippets to use.
Once you have added the integration code snippets to your website, you can configure your integration to suit your needs from the user integration settings .
Please note that if you are using the company integration, some integrations settings will be specified at the company level while other integration settings will be customizable on a per-user basis for each user in your company. User-specific integration settings will be applied after a user signs in to from the presenter integration page on your website.
Please see the integration settings documentation for more information about specific configuration settings.
Connecting Your Presenters and Viewers Automatically
The Screenleap integration feature supports automatically connecting your viewers to an active share session. The easiest way to automatically connect your presenters and viewers on your website is to use the same website URL for your presenter and viewer integration page. A website URL is considered identical if the hostname and path are the same. The query parameters can be different, so you can pass in different query parameters depending on whether you want the presenter or viewer integration page to be loaded.
If you would prefer to use a different website URL for your presenter and viewer integrations, please take a look at our advanced integration guide for instructions on how to do so.
To make it easier for you to try out the integration feature, we have made the integration feature available on all account types—including free accounts. Integrations for free accounts are limited to the functionality available on the free accounts and subject to the daily time limit for free accounts (currently 40 minutes per day).
Free account integrations will show Screenleap's branding to your users. Your users will also be redirected a promo page at the end of the share session. Upgrading to a paid account will remove the redirection to the promo page at the end of the share session. If you would like to white-label the integration feature to show your own company's name, logo, and branding, you can do so by upgrading to a Premium or Max account.
