ITCS Notification – SabaMeeting Issue with Android Devices

Posted: May 18
If you do not use an Android device to join or watch recordings of SabaMeeting events, please disregard this message.

As of the recent SabaMeeting upgrade, we have discovered an issue with the SabaMeeting Android app that prevents users from seeing any of their sessions or recordings. As a workaround, Android users can click on the attend link in the e-mail that they receive when they are enrolled in a SabaMeeting event. Doing so will redirect the user to that event within the SabaMeeting app. Recordings can be viewed by clicking on a playback link which can be provided by the instructor in this same manner.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. Saba is aware of the issue and is actively working on a fix which they say will be in place by the end of June.
