Webex offers a variety of collaboration options to personalize your experience.

Personal Room Meeting

A Personal Room Meeting uses the traditional dial-in bridge conference that you can schedule and invite via Outlook. Personal Room Meetings are ideal for back-to-back meetings. With Personal Room Meetings, the meeting host can remain in one meeting room for several meetings and have attendees join at different times.

  • ○ Hosting: Anyone in the space can start the meeting by clicking the Meet button.
  • ○ Scheduling: Click the Meetings tab to create a calendar invite and have the email addresses of everyone in the space added automatically.
  • ○ Joining: Anyone invited to a space meeting may immediately join the meeting.

Space Meeting

You can schedule a meeting with everyone in your space directly from the space. A space meeting is an easy way to meet either when you decide to have an ad-hoc meeting or regular team meetings.  Only other Webex space users can join a space meeting.

  • ○ Hosting: Anyone in the space can start the meeting by clicking the Meet button.
  • ○ Scheduling: Click the Meetings tab to create a calendar invite and have the email addresses of everyone in the space added automatically.
  • ○ Joining: Anyone invited to a space meeting may immediately join the meeting.

Scheduled Meeting

A standard scheduled meeting is a traditional Webex meeting that has a unique URL issued for each new meeting. 

  • ○ Hosting: Host or alternate host(s) can start the meeting.
  • ○ Scheduling: Unique URLs are issued for each new meeting to share in meeting invites.
  • ○ Joining: Attendees can join up to 15 minutes before the meeting starts via your dedicated meeting link.
