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:

- Reservationless meeting IDs are permanently reserved and cannot be used for scheduled meetings.
- E-mail notifications are not sent for reservationless meetings.
- Reservationless meetings cannot be lecture-style meetings.
