scheduling a meeting

If you don't have a calendar service set up, when you schedule, modify or cancel a meeting, Webex automatically sends everyone a new email so they stay up to date. When you modify or cancel the meeting, Webex automatically sends everyone a new email with the updated details. When the time comes, Webex sends reminder emails.

If you have Hybrid Calendar Service, when you schedule a meeting, Webex no longer sends emails, but creates a new event in the calendar. Invitees receive an invitation. When you modify the meeting, invitees receive an updated invitation. When you cancel the meeting, your calendar removes the meeting. In addition, hosts and invitees receive a pop-up reminder message before the meeting.
