Note: This option will be disabled by default on the site. This fix requires XMLAPI 7.4.0 EP1, which may impact backward compatibility.

You can only edit meetings scheduled from the Microsoft Outlook, and Webex App from the respective platform. The edit icon doesn't appear for these meetings.


Webex Meetings Only

The recurring meeting series functionality has been enhanced. Users can now create exceptions to a recurring meeting series.

  • Users can now navigate through each instance of a recurring meeting. (Meeting instances are listed separately in list/calendar views)
  • Users can create exceptions to series meetings.
  • When editing/deleting a particular instance, users will have the option to edit/delete that particular occurrence or the entire series.

To edit a single occurrence of a recurring meeting:

  1. Log in to your Webex Web site. (Example:
  2. Click on Calendar in the left navigation bar.

Additional Information:

  • Two instances of a series cannot occur on the same day.
  • An exception meeting cannot be moved beyond the next (or previous) instance in the series.
  • Editing the recurrence pattern of (or canceling) the entire series will delete any existing exception meetings.
  • Series meeting instances share a common join link/meeting number.
  • The link/meeting number will always take the user to the current meeting instance. (I.e., the next upcoming meeting, including exceptions.)
  • Users who are invited to a particular exception only will have a different join link/meeting number which will link directly to that particular exception.
