Room Types Compared
In Whereby Business there are two different types of rooms: Personal and Team rooms. Personal rooms are your private space to host small meetings of up to 4 people. Personal rooms can't be accessed by other users in your organization when the room is Locked.
Conversely, Team rooms can hold up to 50 people and are accessible by other users in your organization at any time (even when Locked). You can use the Lock feature to stop users outside of your organization from joining!
Personal rooms are Created as part of our registration process, and every user will create a Personal room immediately after registering for their account. Personal Rooms do not include Recording.
Team rooms can be created by Admin and User accounts, and the maximum number of Team Rooms you can create is based on package size you have. You can Create new rooms by following the steps below. Team Rooms all include the Recording feature.
Setting up Rooms
Use the instructions below to set up new Team Rooms. Personal Rooms are created as part of the registration process, and there isn't currently a way to have more than one Personal Room

With the Business plan, you can choose to have consistent branding across all of the rooms in your organization, or you can customize individual rooms to give them your own personal flair! Depending on your user role in the account, you'll have one of the following permissions:
- Admins are able to set company-wide branding via the Branding tab in the account, and are also able to set individual branding for their Personal Room and Team Rooms
- Users are able to set individual branding on their Personal Rooms and Team Rooms they have created.
Start on the Dashboard and click on Branding in the sidebar. Select from the dropdown menu if you want to customize all rooms or a single room.
From there you can see the current customizations that are in place, and make changes as necessary.
- Click on the Choose button to upload images for each option, or click reset to go back to the default Whereby settings. These changes will be applied immediately.
