Up one level: Configuration

Reservationless meetings begin immediately and have the following special characteristics:

  • Anyone may join a reservationless meeting, unless a meeting password is in use.
  • Anyone can access reservationless meeting recordings and attachments.
  • The meeting ID for a reservationless meeting is the Profile number of the meeting owner.
  • A meeting instance is created on demand when someone joins a meeting with a reservationless meeting ID. The meeting is terminated immediately when the last participant leaves.
  • By default, the meeting subject is the Last name of the meeting owner.
  • The system treats each instance of a reservationless meeting as a separate entity with its own unique conference ID, displayed as ConfNum in reports and exported data.
  • Participants who join a reservationless meeting before the owner does are placed in a waiting room (where they cannot communicate with each other) until the meeting owner arrives, unless the following statements are true:

  • E-mail notifications are not sent for reservationless meetings.
  • Reservationless meetings cannot be lecture-style meetings.
