Using Conferences for Office Hours

I'm an adjunct and it's difficult for me to come to campus for office hours, so I'm interested in using Conferences in Canvas for office hours. I'm not sure how to use it, however, and the user guides didn't clarify this for me.


When I "start a conference" do I need to invite all students each time? I don't want to have to notify them each time I'm online for conference hours, I'd rather them just know I'll be there and come online if they need help. The "chat" feature seems to be group chatroom instead of a one-on-one chat.


I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions or has used Canvas for office hours and wants to pass along some tips! Thanks!
