If due to some reason, the instance was not automatically detected, you can add it manually. To do it, tap on the /room/media/gui/plus_orange/en.png button and enter Room Web Url (the address needed for accessing the control panel) and name. If it is necessary, enter TrueConf Room Controller and tap on the Add button.
