The Personal Room that Webex users have access to, can be used for meetings if they have a Webex account. It is possible for you to set it up yourself if it has not been set up for you already. Depending on how many Personal Rooms you have, you can select which one you would like to use from the list.
Windows and Mac
In the Webex App, you may already have your Personal Room set up. If there is a link to your personal room at the top of your screen, you can check it by going to Meetings and clicking on it. I am pretty sure if it’s the case, you don’t need to do anything and you’re good to go.
Follow these steps if, instead of the Set Up My Personal Room option, you see Set Up My Personal Room instead.
- Set up your own personal meeting room by going to Meetings and clicking on Set Up My Meeting Room.
- You will then need to enter your host PIN in order to open the Personal Room link. This can be found under the following URLs: https://company.webex.com/meet/username or company.webex.com/meet/username.
The Webex App allows you to choose which Personal Room you would like to associate with your Webex account, even if you belong to multiple Webex sites and, therefore, have multiple Personal Rooms.
The Personal Room link and the host PIN can be found on your Webex site, which you can access if you are unsure of what they are. There is a standard format for the URL of your Webex site, which is company.webex.com. Once you have signed in, you will be able to see them by going to Preferences > My Personal Room. You are not allowed to create a Personal Room on your website if you don’t see a link to it and a PIN to access it. Please contact the site administrator if you have any questions.
- Then click the Save button.

There must be a host or alternative host who can start a Personal Room on behalf of the host or the host’s delegation.

It will take until then before others can join us.
