Need to hold a meeting now? The Meet Now command is a simple way to start instant meetings.

You can start instant meetings from your WebEx site using the Meet Now command. By default, instant meetings that you start with the Meet Now command are in your Personal Room. If you don’t want to use your Personal Room for instant meetings, turn off the Use Personal Room for all my instant meetings option in the “Meet Now” Settings section of your Preferences.

If you have WebEx Productivity Tools, you can do it all directly from your desktop.
