Stride: how can I turn off camera by default in Start Meeting box?

hi, every time you go to start a meeting / call, the Camera is on by default. Even if you've turned it off beforehand for a specific contact. It's really annoying - I don't want a video call by default so should be able to set the Camera option to off by default. Any advice much appreciated!

Heya Ian, it's not currently possible to change the default meeting settings. We do have a feature request to remember the meeting settings so it doesn't need to be changed manually everytime : STRIDE-793

I'd also encourage you to visit the suggestion page linked above and click the Vote and Watch links near the top right to show support for the feature. By doing this, it will ensure you're proactively informed of progress and updates going forward. Also we would appreciate your feedback on the feature, you can do this by leaving a comment on the ticket, this helps us prioritize & understand the use case of the feature request.

Let me know if you have any questions! :) 

So is it possible to have a feature request to be able to set the default call video settings? This is an important right to privacy issue and you're sub-standard right now. Even worse is that incoming meeting calls have my camera turned on by default. That's ridiculous! I should not have to go scrambling for the mouse to click the off button every time. Not good enough. I like you're suite of software and sites very much but this aspect is really putting me off. Please, get moving on this annoyance.

I would seriously recommend that Atlassian move this "Suggestion" to a "Bug" and prioritize it as a serious issue.  

In comparison to other communications tools, a decision maker will opt to use something else (e.g. Slack/Zoom) rather then having to deal with all their users being impacted by this behavior - no matter what incremental value Stride (eventually) delivers over its competitors.

Fix should:

  • Set default setting out-of-the-box to Camera=Off
  • Allow system admin level setting of the default, and
  • Have system remember each users settings if they decide to change their own settings.

Totally agree. School boy mistake!! Upsets people every time I have a meeting!!!

Excellent suggestion. Camera on by default is an absolute no-go.
