Features

Designed For

Your personal meeting room should only be used when you are meeting on-the-fly with someone. Do not use your personal meeting room to host classes or public events; instead, use scheduled meetings.

Think of it as something like your phone number, but with video. In fact, you can edit the URL for your personal meeting to use any 10-digit number you prefer; your Ohio state phone number is a good suggestion. You can also create a URL that includes your name.

For your personal meeting room, we recommend turning off Allow Join Before Host; this is your room, to be used only when you are there.

Using your personal meeting room at a time when you have scheduled another Zoom meeting through the Zoom app, the web portal, or the CarmenCanvas integration may cause problems.
