About Delegates

Users can use Microsoft Outlook to schedule Cisco Unified MeetingPlace or Cisco WebEx meetings on behalf of another user if they are a delegate of that user. They can also schedule the use of resources, such as conference rooms.

To enable the scheduling of resources, you must define an email account for each resource. Users can then invite the resource to a meeting by entering the email account.


Note the following:

  • Cisco Unified MeetingPlace for Microsoft Outlook delegate users need to have attendant-level privileges or higher to schedule either Cisco Unified MeetingPlace or Cisco WebEx meetings on behalf of someone else.
    • If the delegate has attendant-level privileges or higher, the meeting will appear to be scheduled by the calendar owner, not delegate, when viewed from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing or MeetingTime.
    • If the delegate does not have attendant-level privileges or higher, the meeting will appear to be scheduled by the delegate when viewed from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing or MeetingTime.


Make sure that you share the following information with your users:

  • If you are a delegate for another user, the username used in both the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace account and email account of the person you are scheduling for must match. If you have a Microsoft Exchange mailbox alias, the alias name must match the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace username.
  • If you are a delegate for a resource, the username used in both the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace account and email account assigned to the resource must match. If you have a Microsoft Exchange mailbox alias, the alias name must match the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace username.
  • The user on whose behalf you schedule meetings must have the Microsoft Outlook plug-in installed.
  • The first time you schedule a meeting on behalf of a user, the system prompts you to enter your user name and password.
  • If you change your password after scheduling a meeting on behalf of a user, the following limitations apply:
    • The user cannot reschedule the meeting without entering your new password. If the user does not enter the new password, the user can still attend the meeting.
    • The user cannot delete the meeting without entering your new password.
    • The user cannot reschedule the meeting in the calendar by dragging and dropping the meeting.
  • If your password has expired but has not yet been changed after scheduling a meeting on behalf of a user, the following limitations apply:
    • You cannot reschedule the meeting in the calendar by dragging and dropping the meeting.
    • If the first meeting you open after your password expires is a meeting you scheduled on behalf of a user, you will be prompted to enter a new password, but the password you enter will not be retained. You must open a meeting on your calendar and change the password to prevent this issue.
    • The user cannot reschedule the meeting. The user can still attend the meeting.
    • The user cannot delete the meeting.
  • Reservationless meetings that you schedule on behalf of the delegator use your reservationless ID—not the ID of the delegator. This means that only you can bring the meeting to order.
  • Meetings that you set up will appear in the calendar in the language that you are configured to use.

System Manager Agents

System Manager Agents are system-wide parameters that you configure in MeetingTime 2001 and later. When these parameters are configured, users receive e-mail notifications about any:

  • No-show recurring meeting
  • Recurring meeting ending


For more information on System Manager Agents, see the documentation for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Audio Server.


If the two recurring meeting triggers overlap, the no-show recurring meeting trigger overrides the recurring meeting ending trigger. The scheduler receives only the no-show notification.


No-Show Recurring Meeting

If a recurring meeting has no attendance for more than a specified number of periods, an e-mail notification is sent to the meeting organizer suggesting that they cancel the remainder of the recurring meeting series.


If the meeting was scheduled from Outlook, the notification includes a text message suggesting that the user cancel the meeting series from their Outlook calendar.


If the meeting was scheduled from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing or MeetingTime, the notification includes a Click Here to Cancel Meetings link that leads the user to a cancellation page on Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing.


Recurring Meeting Ending

If a recurring meeting series is within a specified number of periods before expiration, an e-mail notification is sent to the meeting organizer. The notification informs the meeting organizer that the series is set to expire and reminds them to schedule another recurring meeting if the series is to continue.


If the meeting was scheduled from Outlook, the notification suggests scheduling another recurring series by using Outlook.


If the meeting was scheduled from Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing or MeetingTime, the notification includes a Click Here to Schedule Another Series link that leads the user to the scheduling page where they can renew the meeting.


No other notifications are sent as the recurring meeting continues toward its expiration.
