If you frequently enter URIs with the same domain (e.g. email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org), you can save time by pre-configuring the domain (e.g. example.com) so that you only need enter the name portion of the URI (e.g. alice and bob).

The Participants on stage area shows the participants who can be seen or heard by other participants. The Participants area is a roster of all participants.
