Webex Personal Meeting Room

This document will explain the difference between Personal Room Meetings and Scheduled Meeting rooms. You will also see how to start/join your Personal Room.


Personal Room Meeting

  • Your Webex Personal Room is your own virtual conference space that you can use for meetings anytime.

  • Typical use cases when deciding to use your Personal Room include:
    • Coffee chats
    • Need to meet briefly with a colleague
    • Ad-hoc meetings
    • Office hours

Scheduled Meeting Room

  • A scheduled Meeting Room always has a unique URL
  • Typical use cases for Scheduled Meetings
    • Meeting with people outside your organization
    • Larger sized meetings
    • Non ad-hoc meetings
    • All staffs

How to Start your Personal Room

  • You can join the meeting from the email invitation link when you created the Personal Room Meeting
  • The web portal by going to uwmadison.webex.com and selecting Start a Meeting on the main home page
  • Webex Meetings Desktop App and click on the green Start a Meeting button
    • You can also choose from your calendar list if you scheduled a Personal Room Meeting
