Can't see "create room" button on HipChat

I want to create a new room with existing HipChat accounts and I can't find the create room button. I don't know if it has something to do with my account being basic.

The "Create New Room ..." entry is in the "..." menu at the top right of the web app

Or you can use the "Create a room" link in the left sidebar below the list of the rooms.

You didn't say whether you're a HipChat admin. If you're not, it's possible that your HipChat admin is only allowing admins to create rooms. If that's the case, you won't see the Create a room link below the rooms and the Create New Room menu item under the ... menu will be grayed out.

Can you tell us what client you're currently using?

Client? You mean if I'm using the app? I'm on the web app. I don't have HipChat installed.

Yeah I when I got the screenshot and saw that the option is graded out I figured that I need to ask permission to create a room. It's all clear now! Thank you for all your help!

I just installed HipChat on my phone and am on the web client now. I see no option to create a room. There is no sidebar nor a "..." menu. Can you explain in more detail, please, how to create a room? Thanks!

EDIT: I now found a link to the WebApp under "Home". So this is where I'd need to go? Oh yes, after a couple of attempts, the app actually opened and I was able to create a room.
