If you're in the process of transitioning your Demodesk seat type from "Business" to "Scheduling", we recommend reading this article as it outlines the steps that should be followed for a seamless transition.
In general, company admins have the ability to adjust the seat type of your team members based on your subscription plan. There are three distinct subscriptions: Business, Scheduling, and Collaborator (as depicted in the image below). It's important to note that each seat type variant offers unique attributes and features.
With a Business seat type, you gain the ability to host, schedule, and shadow meetings.
Opting for a Scheduling seat type limits you to the scheduling feature set exclusively.
The Collaborator seat type is a special license for admins and leadership personnel which can be part of your contract. It allows you to shadow meetings.
Learn more about the feature sets per seat type here.
Note that admin access is not determined by seat type, but by user permissions.

Moving from Business to Scheduling
If you are transitioning from "Business" to "Scheduling", please proceed with the following steps to edit your meeting types:
Step 1: Edit meeting location
Initiate the process by modifying the meeting location in your meeting types (e.g., switching from a Demodesk meeting to Google Meet, as illustrated in the image below).
Step 2: Edit content
Upon selecting an alternative meeting location, you might encounter a prompt asking whether you wish to retain your customized content, such as the email invite description, or agree to overwrite it. This is due to the fact that certain information or specific tokens might no longer be applicable when changing the location.
This modal will not show if you have not modified the default meeting type content.
If you choose to keep the content customization, please review all notifications. This includes: Meeting description, email invite, email reminder, follow-up reminder, and email invite for the booking confirmation.
Note: The "Overwrite" option will discard all customized content and apply Demodesk's default content (including valid tokens) for the respective meeting location. More information about tokens can be found here.
Important notes: Team member assignment & other video conferencing tools
Please always ensure that members assigned to the specific meeting type possess the appropriate licenses and have the necessary video conferencing tool enabled. It's important to note that a meeting type (incl. its booking link) could become invalid if all members lack the required access to Demodesk or the desired meeting platform (see below).
Users must connect their video conferencing tools individually. Here are instructions on how to do it for the different tools:
For instance, when transitioning to Microsoft Teams, it's essential to notify your team members to connect their Teams accounts individually, before making any changes to the meeting type configuration. By navigating to Profile > Teammates > Integrations, you can readily view the integrations enabled for each team member, as depicted below:
