Step 4 Fill in the meeting information, such as the date, time and length of the meeting. You can also enter a meeting ID and subject.

Note If you do not select a profile from the address book, the user will be invited as a guest.
Step 6 After entering the name, click Add to add the user to the Invitees table.
Step 7 In the Invitees table, enter an e-mail address for the invitee if none has been entered, and change the invitee's meeting permissions from the default values if desired. Each user must have an e-mail address, and at least one user must have Moderator permissions for the meeting. (Moderators can also change an attendee's meeting permissions from the meeting console while the meeting is in session.)
