    Your personal Webex room

    Think of your own personal Webex room as your own conference room. You will be assigned an individual link which will always remain the same and which you can easily remember. You can hold a meeting immediately or copy the URL of your personal room into a calendar invitation. Back-to-back meetings are easy to manage using your own personal rooms, and you can use the lobby to keep track of your guests.
