Meeting Configuration

Meeting configuration settings define the type of conferences (also called "meetings") that users can create, and control how (or whether) anonymous users and dial-in conferencing users can join these conferences. These settings only apply to scheduled meetings. They do not apply to ad-hoc meetings created by clicking the Meet Now option in the client.

Meeting configurations apply on the global, site, or pool level:

  • Global meeting configuration: The global meeting configuration is created by default. You can edit the global meeting configuration, but you cannot delete it. If you try to remove the global meeting configuration, all the settings are reset to the default values.

  • Site meeting configuration (optional): You can create one or more site meeting configurations, each of which applies to a specific site. Site configurations override the global configuration.

  • Pool meeting configuration (optional): You can create one or more pool meeting configurations, each of which applies to a specific pool. Pool configurations override the global configuration and site configurations.

The Meeting Configuration page displays a list of all the meeting configurations that are defined for your organization.
