Your Webex Personal Room is like your virtual office where people can drop in to visit you. 

  • You're always the host of the meeting. 
  • You can send meeting invitations and reminders. 
  • It's available at a consistent URL based on your WFU username. 
  • You can lock your personal room to control who joins the meeting.
  • Start the meeting on the fly without having to use the scheduler.
  • Personal Rooms can be configured to allow one or more alternate hosts who can start meetings on your behalf.
