Upon enabling, the attribute will pull through on the front end and allow attendees to filter & connect with other participants who fall under the searched for attribute.

Meetings page

On the meetings page you will see the create button. This will give you the option to define your meeting details, add multiple recipients, and select a date and time for the meeting to take place. The recipients will receive an email notification advising that you have requested a meeting. 
To request a meet now from the meetings page, the meeting organizer simply toggles on the meet now button. Upon selecting this the date/time option will disappear and the organizer follows the steps to complete the meeting set up.
