Know how to automatically leave or close web meeting programs such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, and more once it’s over.
Covid-19 has led to more remote work and also has led to more online meetings. A user may have the meeting window open, then Excel, and a tool for notes.
In the end, the user seems to be the last one in the meeting because he or she forgot to close the window.
However, with a program like AutoLeaveMeeting, you can automatically leave or close web meeting programs such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, and more once the meeting gets over.
AutoLeaveMeeting basically does nothing else than monitor the sound output on the computer and then close a pre-selected program window when there is no sound for a while.
In usual meetings there are rarely pauses in the conversation that lasts longer than 5 – 10 seconds: someone always says something.
In AutoLeaveMeeting settings, users can set a silence time between 5 and 600 seconds, after which a certain process will be closed automatically.
As soon as no sound is monitored, the countdown starts. This will be interrupted when there is a signal at the sound output again.
When the meeting is over, everyone has said “goodbye” and it is quiet, the tool would close the meeting window. The user might be the last one to quit, but would not be the one hanging alone in the chat forever.
How To Use AutoLeaveMeeting
It is very easy to use AutoLeaveMeeting to close web meeting programs automatically.
- Open the meeting program and look at its “title”.
- Then start AutoLeaveMeeting.
- In the list of processes, select the one that clearly belongs to the meeting window (like “Skype”) – Select it.
- At the top, enter how long the window must be silent to close. The default is 10 seconds, and from experience, that’s a good amount of time.
- Finally hit the “Start” button at the bottom. The Windows sound is monitored and when the system is quiet for the set time, the meeting window closes.
All in all, AutoLeaveMeeting is a safety application that protects user’s privacy by signing out of any online meeting, no matter the platform, even if they forget to do it.
Use the time interval to ensure everybody had finished talking, and after the silence settles, the countdown starts. Also, the app is intuitive and very easy to use, which is a good plus for casual or non-technical users.
