Creating a Moderated Meeting

Meeting organizers with Pro permission use the Meeting scheduling assistant on the Windows, macOS, or web app or one of the Amazon Chime Add-ins for Outlook to schedule their meetings.

Using the Chime desktop clients or web app

Moderated meeting IDs are created when the Generate a new ID and require moderator to start option is selected. The organizer is then prompted to set the 4-8 digit moderator passcode. If the passcode is less than 4 digits or contains non-numeric characters, an error will be displayed. If the moderator passcode meets the requirements, a message will indicate that you are Ready to proceed and choose Next.

The images below show the two dialog boxes presented when a Pro user chooses Schedule a Meeting from the More menu from the Chime desktop client or when choosing Schedule a meeting from the Meetings and Calls menu when using the web app.

The second part of the Meeting scheduling assistant provides the standard list of attendees to invite and meeting invitation instructions as well as an option when require moderator is selected to Copy moderator info which copies the meeting ID, join URL and passcode to the clipboard.

Meeting ID: 6058181...
Join URL: https://chime.aws/6058181...
Moderator passcode: 47387281

Follow the same steps you take when scheduling Chime meetings by double-clicking on you calendar to create a new Appointment or update an existing Appointment and choose Schedule Amazon Chime Meeting.

Choose the option to Generate a new ID and require moderator to start and provide a moderator passcode that is 4-8 digits, then choose Schedule.

If the passcode doesn't meet the 4-8 digit requirements the Must be 4-8 digits message is be displayed. Update the passcode to meet the 4-8 digit requirement.

When you select Schedule, the add-in will populate the meeting invitation with the appropriate invitees and meeting instructions.

About the Moderator Passcode

Be sure to make a note of the passcode. To keep the moderator passcode private, it is not part of the information included in the meeting instructions. The host or their scheduling delegate should take steps to distribute the moderator passcode to the appropriate meeting attendees – consider a separate email thread or a secured shared document.

For security reasons, the moderator passcode is not displayed anywhere in the Chime application or console. If you forget the moderator passcode for a meeting ID, please generate a new ID and moderator passcode.

Once a meeting ID is set to require moderator to start, i.e. is a moderated meeting, it is always a moderated meeting and when used for future meetings, including recurring meetings or adhoc meetings, the moderator passcode can be used to start the meeting or to receive host meeting controls.
