Common Issues you may run into when running a Telehealth session and how to solve them.

Message: This Session has Ended
Each session link is a 'one time use' link.
If you try to start or re-join a session and receive a message that the session has ended, this means that the session link has already been used.
You will need to create a new appointment so that a new link is generated.
OR, if you have to leave the session temporarily or want to switch devices, you must use the Leave Call button, otherwise you will not be able to rejoin the session.
Message: You Already Have an Active Telehealth Session
This means that you have not fully ended an earlier session.
Look for indicators that you're still in a session at the top and bottom of your browser window.
|Browser Tab:||Browser Footer:|
If you don't see these indicators you can simply re-start your previous Telehealth session from the Calendar or Agenda, click End Session (rather than Leave Call), and you should be able to start the new session.

From the provider's perspective, in full screen you may see this:
But by readjusting your browser window dimensions to resemble more of a tall rectangle, you will see more of your client's face.
