Each Advisor sets their fees based on what they feel their time is worth and the overall value of the expertise they are providing. Advisors with highly skilled or specialized knowledge will typically charge a little more than those offering more basic, or beginner type training.
All adendo training sessions are done via an online video conferencing platform. That means you and your Advisor will be able to see and hear each other, as well as share your screens through the platform.
In order to do this, you will need an internet connection and a computer, tablet or mobile device equipped with a camera and a microphone. If your computer does not have a microphone you will have the option of using a call-in number. Once you’re connected, you will click on JOIN BY PHONE in the upper left of your screen to access a call-in number and password. If your computer does not have a camera you will still be able to join the session, but the Advisor will not be able to see you.
At the time of your scheduled session, you will log into your adendo account and click on DASHBOARD, then UPCOMING SESSIONS, where you will see the JOIN button. When you click JOIN it will say WAIT TILL ADVISOR STARTS THE SESSION. Once the Advisor starts the session the button will turn blue and say, JOIN ROOM. Click the button and you will be connected. The time does not start until both of you have joined.
Once the session starts you will see the clock in the upper left of the screen along with the END SESSION button. When either the Client or the Advisor clicks the END SESSION button, the session is finished, and you will be billed for the exact number of minutes used.
