    Hi! I
    Is there is anyway to display the recorded meeting for each meeting in the units. I have found a short-code [bigbluebutton_recordings] for recordings, but it display all recorded meetings together.
    It will be great, if it can be added automatically in the same location “Unit” for each meeting after being finished.

    I have few questions:
    1. How do we set privacy only for course students from ‘add meeting’ popup? I’ve added the privacy, but can’t see the meeting in the list at all. Do I need to add each student in that course? When I set the privacy “LoggedIn users”, I can see the “Join now” button
    2. I can’t see the “Join now” button when the meeting is on going. What could be the possible problem?
