Add Alternate Hosts for Your Personal Room Meetings (Not recommended)

 

If you make someone who is already waiting in your Personal Room lobby an alternate host, one of the following scenarios occurs:

  • If the alternate host is signed in, the meeting starts automatically in your Personal Room, if you do not have a Personal Room meeting already in progress
  • If the alternate host is not signed in, they receive a prompt to sign in before starting the meeting. 
  1. Sign in to your Webex account, and go to  Meeting Center (Classic View)
  2. Select My WebEx > Preferences > My Personal Room
  3. Check the Let others host my Personal Room Meetings without me check box. 

  1. Select one of the following options:
  • Allow anyone with an account on this site to be an alternate host for my Personal Room meetings
  • Let me choose alternate hosts for my Personal Room meetings

These settings apply for all of your Personal Room meetings (instant and scheduled meetings).

  1. Select Save.
