🎯 Once a meeting is accepted, a virtual attendee will only get virtual meeting details. 

  1. Details of meeting. Meeting status, time, and date.
  2. Other actions. "Reschedule" and "Cancel meeting."
  3. A door to the virtual room- the video icon 🎥. Once clicked, a video call will start without alerting the other person that the call has begun. When it's time to meet, both attendees can write before joining the virtual room.
