Configure Daily Prebuilt's UI for a custom experience
Enabling and disabling Daily Prebuilt meeting features
Domain, room, and meeting token properties
Many parts of the in-call experience can be customized by changing domain, room or meeting token properties.
Properties that can be set at both the domain and room level
If a property is set for the domain and also set at the room level, the room setting takes precedence.

UI flows when a user joins a meeting: managing room access and pre-meeting experiences
If you’re using Daily Prebuilt, setting
true at either the room or domain level turns on a lobby experience for call participants. They can check their camera and microphone before joining a call, and also wait to be admitted by the host if the room is private and they are joining without a token.
You can also take advantage of a suite of Daily methods and events geared towards implementing a custom lobby if you're building on top of the Daily call object and using WebSocket signaling (signaling_impl = 'ws' in your room config). With these methods and events you can:
- Determine the local participant's access level, even before attempting to join a meeting:
- Request elevated access to a meeting:
- Manage pending access requests (if you're a meeting owner):
These methods and events are also all available when using Daily Prebuilt if you'd like to build similar waiting room experiences around the call embed.
UI flows when a user leaves a meeting
Two properties control what happens when a user leaves a meeting from a standalone browser tab:
close_tab_on_exit is set to
true, the browser tab closes when the user clicks the leave meeting button in the in-call menu bar.
redirect_on_meeting_exit property is set, the property value will be interpreted as a URL that the browser should redirect to when the user clicks the leave meeting button. A query string that includes the parameter
recent-call=<domain>/<room> is appended to the URL.
Daily branding in call UI
By default, Daily branding is shown in the call UI for accounts that do not have a credit card on file.
There is no associated cost to remove Daily branding from the call UI; however, you will need to add your credit card information to your account to have access to the hide Daily branding option via the
hide_daily_branding domain property. Refer to our pricing page for more information.
