There are just a few details required to schedule a meeting. Optionally, you can adjust a number of settings in the Advanced Scheduler to customize the experience for meeting hosts and participants.
Note: Starting January 1, 2018, UMN students will no longer be able to host meetings using WebEx. This change does not affect students’ ability to join WebEx meetings hosted by faculty, instructors or staff at webex.umn.edu.
Click the Log In button located in the upper right corner
If prompted, enter your UMN Internet ID and password and click the Sign In button.
Click the Meeting Center tab in the top navigation bar.
From the left navigation bar, click Host a Meeting to expand the menu.
Select Schedule a Meeting.
On the Schedule a Meeting page:
enter a meeting topic (title)
enter a password (if desired)
specify the meeting date, time, and duration
enter the email addresses for everyone you want to invite to the meeting
If you require teleconferencing (participants receiving audio through a telephone) you can click Change audio option:
Use VoIP only is the default option, and should be left selected for most meetings. This supplies audio via the computers or mobile apps of your participants and is the simplest way to host audio.
WebEx Audio is a service intended for groups of 25 or fewer participants who wish to use telephones to supply the audio portion of the meeting. This should only be selected if you have members with a specific need for teleconferencing; e.g, when meeting with participants on slower dial-up connections.
Click Schedule Meeting or Start. The Start button is displayed if you schedule a meeting within 15 minutes of the meeting's start time.
