💡This guide assumes that you already have an online appointment booked in with your provider. You will want to reach out to your clinic directly if you are unsure!
Let’s get you connected for that upcoming video call!
We recommend using the latest version of Chrome on your desktop or laptop computer.
To join your session on an iPhone or iPad, hop over to the following guide: iPhone/iPad Instructions.
There are two ways you can begin your Online Appointment.
1. Join via Email Appointment Reminder
You will receive an Appointment Reminder email sent to you by your provider 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.
Click the button at the bottom of the email to begin:
2. Join via My Account
Alternatively, you can access this same button by logging into your account by visiting your clinic’s Jane site, using the Sign In/Sign Up button in the top right-hand corner.
The URL to the clinic’s Jane site will look something like clinicnamehere.janeapp.com — often, clinics will include a direct link to their Jane online booking site on their website, but you can always ask if you are unsure!
Once you have logged into your account, you will want to navigate to the Upcoming Appointments tab on the lefthand side, then click the blue Begin button next to today’s appointment.
💡For your security and privacy, Jane’s Online Appointment is not designed to record or store audio or video and all electronic audio and video communication will be encrypted in transit.
On the next page, you will see a quick reminder to use the right browser and a fast internet connection for the video call. Jane and the clinic will need your consent before your video call begins. To provide it, click the I Consent button.
We recommend you use the latest stable version of Chrome as well as a fast internet connection. If you’re having trouble with your Online Appointment, refer to this troubleshooting guide.
This will start the call in a separate window, and you will enter into a private waiting area. If your practitioner has already joined the call, they’ll admit you as soon as they’re ready. If they haven’t joined yet, you’ll hear a chime 🔔 once they’ve started your call.
Practitioners and clients using an iOS device (iPhone or iPad): Please ensure the Jane Online Appointments App is up to date for an improved start of call experience. You can visit the App Store Here to update the App.
Once you have joined the call, you will be able to:
- Mute or unmute your audio.
- Enable or disable the video camera.

After the Online Appointment
Once you leave the call, you’ll have an opportunity to share your feedback about the video call with the Jane team as we look to continue refining the experience.
💡It’s important NOT to provide any private health information in this feedback since it will be reviewed by the Jane team.
If you would like to go back into the call, you can click the Re-Join Online Appointment button to reopen the call window.
That’s it! If you run into any issues with connecting to the call or seeing blurry images, check out our troubleshooting guide to help resolve those issues.
