Notice both accounts. If a user has multiple accounts, be sure to invite the correct account to the Hangout. One way to assure this is to create circles with accounts that you have verified as being work appropriate accounts. INVITING PEOPLE TO A VIDEO CALL 15. When you start a video call, you might notice that the video call is restricted to people in your organization. You can still add people outside your organization if you explicitly invite them, or if they are part of a circle that you invite. People within your organization can join the video call if they are invited or have the URL. When you invite people outside your organization, youll see a warning and will need to verify that you want to do this. Then during the video call, participants will see a notice that external people have been invited and can join. This serves as a reminder to be careful about what you discuss. Before your meeting make sure you have an agenda outlining what you can discuss with people outside your organization. If uninvited people outside your organization get the URL to a restricted video call, they wont be able to join. In addition, people outside your organization wont be able to extend invitations to other participants (but other people in your organization can do so). If you select Public when you invite people to the video call, the video call will no longer be restricted to your organization and people you explicitly invite. For a Public Hangout, anyone who has the URL will be able to join, as long as the video call isnt already full. INVITING NON MAGNET 360 EMPLOYEES TO A VIDEO CALL 16.
