Description

Subject

A short description that distinguishes your meeting in Search results and meeting confirmation pages for users. If no subject is specified, the last name of the meeting scheduler is used to populate this field.

Meeting ID

A number that allows the system to uniquely identify a meeting that is occurring at any particular time. The system can automatically assign meeting IDs, or you can assign a custom ID.

Note If you are scheduling two consecutive meetings with the same meeting ID, note that the second occurrence of the meeting (Meeting2) must be scheduled as follows: Meeting2StartTime greater then or equal to EndTimeMeeting1 + EndGuardTime + StartGuardTime

For information about guard times, see .

Start Time

The time you want your meeting to start. This is based on your time zone setting.

Duration

The duration of your meeting in minutes. The default maximum meeting length is 24 hours for voice meetings and 12 hours for web meetings. The minimum meeting length is 2 minutes.

On behalf of user

The user ID of the person for whom you are scheduling a meeting.

Note This field is available only to users who have Attendant or System Manager privileges.

Public

When checked, this meeting will appear in the list of results when users use the Find Meeting feature on the end-user web interface.

Type

Your meeting type.

Personal—A meeting associated with your profile number that you can start right away. In Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, this is also referred to as a reservationless meeting.

Regular—The default meeting type set by your system administrator.

Lecture-style—A meeting in which there is one or more Speakers. The majority of participants are Listeners and are only granted speaking privileges by the meeting moderator. This meeting type is usually meant for one-to-many meetings.

Reserve all ports—A meeting that reserves all ports so that a system administrator can schedule a maintenance window.

Note (Cisco WebEx integration only) If you select Cisco WebEx as the Web conference provider, then you can only schedule Personal and Regular meetings.

Category

An optional parameter that allows you to set your meeting within a specified category of meetings (for example, all Sales meetings or Crisis meetings).

Note This field is available only if your system administrator configured meeting categories.

Password

An optional password that you are setting for your meeting.

If you choose to protect a meeting with a password, all invitees must enter this password to access your meeting. If you do not require password protection, leave this field blank.

Billing code

If your company uses bill-backs, this field contains the number that is used to identify the group or department that should be billed for this meeting.

Audio ports

The number of audio ports to reserve for the meeting.

When checked, video is enabled for the meeting.

When checked, video ports (the same number as you specified in the Audio ports field) are reserved for the meeting.

Choose between Cisco WebEx and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing.

Field Reference: Advanced Options

Field
Description

Who can attend

Choose an option from the list to indicate who can attend the meeting:

Anyone—The meeting is unrestricted. Both profiled users and guest users can attend.

MeetingPlace Profile Users—All components of the meeting (audio, web, and video) are restricted to profile users who sign in by using their Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user ID and password.

Invited Profile Users—All components of the meeting (audio, web, and video) are restricted to profile users who were invited to attend. All invited users must sign in by using their Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user ID and password.

Outdial on first join

Select to have the system dial out to all invitees after the first person joins the meeting. The system dials out to eight invitees at a time until all invitees are joined into the meeting.

Note This feature is only available for system administrators who schedule continuous meetings.

Meeting entry mode

Choose what users will hear when they try to join the audio portion of your meetings.

Echo meeting ID—The system repeats the meeting ID so that users can confirm their choice. When users first enter the meeting ID, their ID is repeated for confirmation. After users confirm the meeting ID, they are asked to record their names then placed in the meeting.

Skip echo—The system skips the repeat of the meeting ID. When users first enter the meeting, users are asked to record their names then are placed in the meeting.

Skip echo and name—The system skips the repeat of the meeting ID and recording. When users first enter the meeting ID, they are placed directly in the meeting without recording their names.

Entry announcement

Choose what users will hear when a new participant joins the meeting.

Beep Only—A short beep is emitted during the meeting to indicate that someone has entered the meeting.

Beep + Name—After a short beep, the recorded name of the participant is announced.

Exit announcement

Choose what users will hear when a participant leaves the meeting.

Beep Only—A short beep is emitted during the meeting to indicate that someone has departed the meeting.

Beep+ Name—After a short beep, the recorded name of the participant is announced.

If you do not hear the name of a participant upon departure, the participant probably did not record a name before entering the meeting.

None—There is no indication that someone has departed the meeting.

Auto record
