What is the issue?

It has come to our attention that some valued customers and their call participants may experience an unexpected error with Scheduled Sessions due to the session duration value being communicated to all participants incorrectly for an extended time, which does not meet the true duration value as intended by the Coviu user. 

See an example of the issue in the screenshots below: 

Session duration for a session within Coivu - 30 minutes.

Email - Invitation for the same session - 90 minutes. 

Who is impacted by the issue?

Call participants may be impacted by this issue when accessing or reviewing invitation confirmations for scheduled sessions received either via email (including the associated email inbox calendar event) or sms, and they may find that the suggested session duration for call participants can be longer than the true duration value that is meant for their session.

What is the workaround?

As a temporary workaround, customers impacted by this issue can utilize their User Room workflow to manage their online consultations. You can also learn about the User Room workflow here.
