Hiding specific rooms

By default, every room in ohyay is visible in the rooms list on the left-hand side (provided that room navigation is enabled in the space).

To hide your room from the rooms list:

  1. Click on Room in the menu bar and select Settings.
  2. Search for Navigation in the Room Settings or scroll down until you see the Navigation section.
  3. Uncheck the box next to Show in Room Navigator.

Making Lobbies & Maps

Creating a virtual lobby is a great way to give your guests a bunch of rooms to pick from. With a lobby experience, you replace the rooms list on the left-hand side.

To create a virtual lobby:

  2. Click on an image of a room in your space that you'd like guests to navigate to.
  3. Click on ** in the Toolbar to add a text element and type in the name of the room. Drag it towards the bottom of the image.
  4. Click on the image to pull up its settings in the Toolbar.
  5. Click on the link icon in the Toolbar to open the dropdown.
  6. Click on the arrow next to the Room/URL and select the room to which the image should link.
  7. Repeat the steps above until you have as many rooms in your lobby as you'd like.
  8. Click on Room > Settings in the menu. Check Hide Room Navigator, since this room will now serve as your guests' navigation.
