Hi Jitsi community, sorry if I’m going about this wrong- I’m new here
I put this out on LinkedIn a few days back. I’ve had some great response including someone who recommended jitsi. (see below for the LinkedIn post and a link to it)
Jitsi is brill, and I think it solves many of the challeneges we have in helping people who are critically ill in hospital (at perhaps even at home) communicate. (we are just testing if we can side load the app into android tablets- as the webonly stuff only seems to work on a pc)
The challenge we can’t yet overcome is:
How can we send a jitsi link to the family member on a shared tablet without installing an additional email client or sms gateway on the tablet in advance.
The tablets are just generic devices (most of them Samsung SM-T530 ( Galaxy Tab 4 10.1) and when used by one patient, we want to be able to pass to the next.
If someone could build for us a meet.jit.si style web page that has the ability to send an sms (I’m happy to pay for the sending of the SMS messages to the Loved ones) or email to the family members with an embedded link back to the unique meet.jit.si page - then we can quickly help more scared and vulnerable people stay in touch with their families.
search the guardian for ‘britons-saying-final-goodbyes-to-dying-relatives-by-videolink-covid-19’ - as I can only put in 1 link as a new user
If there is anyone at jitsi that could help us with this project. Then my contact detail are firstname.lastname@example.org or my mobile is 07976988548
or maybe my idea above is the wrong way to go about this- and there is an easier way??
