Today was first time using it. My provider kept saying he was putting things in the chat. But there wasn't a chat window. After awhile I noticed a red circle with the number changed from 1 to 2 to 3 and recognized the number changed everytime he told me he was putting something in the chat. So I tapped the number and a skinny side window opened with words all scrunched up making them illegible.
Then when the meeting ended, nothing. Just a blank window. No way to get to the information he had typed. It disappeared.
The connection was fine, the audio and video worked well. It would be so very helpful if there was a tuturial explaining what the icons mean and how to get the typed chat links and info over to where I can store them outside of the meeting so I can use them.

This is the first time using this app. Now before we start, I have the latest iPhone and M1 Mac. Internet speed of 1000 Mbps. I used the link to get into the meeting and it joined the meeting with no video or mic and i could not hear anyone. I opted then to download the app and then amazingly it worked intermittently frustrating connection issues from their side. The facilitator who began the presentation could not be heard from the start, and no one was being heard. They logged in, then out, then back in a number of times until they managed to maintain somewhat of a connection. He was also within the VA Hospital, I can see the office. I, on the other hand, could not hear anything the facilitator was saying. Nor can I understand anything; the presentation video was relaying so choppy and 80% with no sound. This is very frustrating; if we as Veterans are to use this venue for appointments, how can we use this efficiently if the VA has poor connection issues due to being routed through bottleneck network access. I think that the IT department needs to be evaluated and the app in general. Both need to be at par with the demands of Veterans and their experiences with the app. We need quality not quantity from apps.
I think the VA has done an excellent job with this app. I use it on my iPad with WiFi and have had absolutely no problems at all. I did have an issue where the Doctor could not hear me so she left video on and called on the phone. After my appointment was over I realized that my volume on my iPad was all the way down. That was operator error, not a problem with the app. It is a safe and secure way to have a face to face with any doctor at the va. Is positioning of a camera that serious? I think that with everything that is going on in the world today that it is amazing how we as a “people” have adapted. At least I can see the people I am talking to. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this app. Absolute Kudos to the developers and again, thank you for sour service and or support.
