Can I open a room 2 hours before a conference?

I’d like to open up a jitsi conference room 2 hours before the conference starts so that people unfamiliar with jitsi can practice ‘joining’ the room. Is it possible or does the jitsi URL get deleted? Thanks for your help!

As soon as someone joins, the room will be created automatically. So if they are the first to join, it will still open for them.

If you have set a password for the room, you will need to be in the room yourself for the full two hour preview period.

Thanks very much for your quick response!

Also if you want to host, you need to enter as the first person and stay in the room.
