What is Supporting Information?

In the Supporting Information configuration options, you can add the following optional items:

  • A support blurb for your client or patient.
  • A link to your Privacy Policy if you have one.
  • A link to your own Terms documents if you have one.
  • A link to a Help page if you have created one.

These links or information snippets will appear at specific points on the screen when your client or patient is joining you in a call.

The information can be useful for your client or patient to seek advice if they are having trouble joining you in a call or want information about your Privacy Policy.

How do I access the Supporting Information menu?

  1. Sign into Coviu as you normally would.
  2. Select the Clinic you want to add the information to.
  3. Click the Configure menu on the left side menu of the Dashboard (if you cannot see the Configure menu, then you are not the Administrator for your clinic).
  4. Click the Waiting Area tab.
  5. Click the dropdown arrow next to Supporting information for callers to reveal the fields you can configure.

What are the fields you can configure?

There are four fields you can update. See the below screen capture for an example:

  1. A Support Message e.g. If you need help joining your call or would like to change your appointment time, please call us on xx xxxx xxxx or visit our website at
  2. Add your Privacy Policy; If your organisation has a Privacy Policy available on your website, add the URL to the relevant field.
  3. Add your Terms of Service; If your organisation has a Terms of Service document outlining how or what services you provide by telehealth, add the URL to the relevant field.
  4. A Help URL; if your organisation has added a page to your website outlining information about Telehealth and perhaps any supporting information e.g. the best way to get the most out of your Telehealth consultation, add the URL to the relevant field.

Where do these links show up?

  1. Your support message is added to the second call join screen:
  2. Your Privacy Policy and Terms of Service Links show up on the following Informed Consent screen:
  3. Your Help URL shows up on the first screen when joining a call.
    1. Note: This URL only renders for calls being joined in the Waiting Area and not User Rooms or Scheduled Sessions.
