When scheduling a meeting you will have an option to use a “Generated ID” or your “Personal Meeting ID”. Your Personal Meeting ID is assigned to you automatically as a permanent virtual meeting room. You can start it at any time or schedule it for future use. We recommend keeping your Personal Meeting ID private and only use it with trusted individuals since it doesn’t ever change.
