We'll show you how to create an amazing workshop room in less than 5 minutes.

Here is how to build out the room above.

One you have created your new room, follow these instructions to customize the template to match the customer room above.

Your new room already comes with a Zoom, Updates, Files & Links, and Action items tiles. We just need to:

Upload room and header images

  1. Hover over the rounded room icon in the top left and click the camera.

  2. Upload your image and crop it to your desired dimensions

  3. Click "Set Cropped Image" and your new image will appear in the room.

  4. Repeat the steps above for the room header image

Have any issues, check out the following article.

Create and configure Zoom tiles

  1. Click the ellipsis in the top right of the "Zoom Meeting" tile and select "Edit Tile." Change the name to "Main Zoom" and click "Save."

  2. Click the ellipsis at the right of the room header and select "Add a Tile"

  3. Select "Zoom."

  4. Name the tile "Team 1" and click "Save"

  5. Repeat steps 1-3 for a second tile, naming this one "Team 2"

  6. Click the ellipsis at the right of the room header and select "Add a Tile" and select "Section Header."

  7. Name the section header "Breakouts."

  8. Click the ellipsis at the right of the room header and select "Edit Tile Order" and drag each of the tiles to the right position on the page. Close the Edit Tile Order window.

Create a whiteboard tile

  1. Click the ellipsis at the right of the room header and select "Add a Tile"

  2. Select "Custom Embed" (For this whiteboard, we are going to use Miro. Many whiteboard products embed very well including Mural, FigJam, and others!)

  3. Name the tile "Whiteboard" and paste in your embed link (for instructions on how to get this embed link from Miro, see this article)

  4. Click "Add Tile" at the bottom of the screen.

Reorder Tiles

  1. Click the ellipsis at the right of the room header and select "Edit Tile Order."

  2. Drag each of the tiles to the right position on the page. Close the Edit Tile Order window.

Insert our content

Now comes the fun part! We can add in our content.

  1. Post an update! In the room header, click "Post an update." Type out your message for the update. Be sure and select "Room Updates" in the delivery options and click "Post Update" at the bottom. You should see the room updates tile display the message you just sent.

  2. Upload your links and files! On the Files & Links tile, click "Add" to add your links to online documents and resources or upload the files you want to share with the room. Note: You can also drag and drop files directly over the tile! Want to know more about Files & Links? See this article.

  3. Remove action items: We don't need action items for this workshop so you can delete that tile by clicking on the ellipsis in the top right of the tile, selection Edit Tile, and the clicking "Delete."

Share your room

Now it's time to share your room with others.

  1. Add room members! Room members can see everything in the room, post messages, join meetings, and collaborate fully. To add room members click the Share icon in the header. Type in the email addresses of your desired members in the "Add people" box and click "Done."

  2. Create a public room link (optional)! Public room links allow you to use your Filo room Zoom meeting in calendar invites, without worry about whether or not your attendees are members or are logged in. Anyone with the link can quickly join any active Zoom meeting. To create the public room, click the share icon in the header and turn on "Public Access." Click the "Copy Link" button and add that link to your meeting invites. Voila!
