How to Schedule a Meeting
GoToMeeting gives you the convenience of scheduling and managing your meetings from lots of different places. Learn more about your options below!
Learn about meeting types
GoToMeeting provides a few different types of sessions, which allows you to pick whichever one best suits your needs.
- One-time meetings
These meetings have a set date and time, as well as a unique meeting ID and audio information. While you can launch the same meeting multiple times (which is particularly useful for practicing your meetings), the meeting ID will expire 30 days after the scheduled end time. To create this type of session, you can select "Occurs once" while scheduling your meeting.
- Recurring meetings
These meetings also have a unique meeting ID and audio information, but they do not have a set date or time. This means that they never expire and can be used over and over! These "anytime" meetings are great for recurring sessions, such as weekly sync ups or team meetings. To create this type of session, you can select "Occurs multiple times" while scheduling your meeting.
- Instant meetings ("Meet now")
You can use our "meet now" sessions to start a meeting on the fly. These sessions are not scheduled ahead of time – they are just launched instantly with the click of a button! If you need to set up a quick meeting, you can start a "meet now" session and simply send others the Join URL once it has launched. Unlike scheduled one-time meetings (which can actually be launched multiple times), "meet now" sessions can only be run once and then the meeting ID expires. Learn more.
- Personal meeting page (GoToMeet.Me)
You can create your own personalized meeting page featuring your name, photo, location and more! Personal meeting rooms are powered by a recurring meeting, but rather than sending your attendees a Join URL, you can share your personal meeting URL (e.g., "www.gotomeet.me/DemoPage"). Learn more.
- Meeting spaces (beta)
With the Meeting Spaces beta, each time you create a new meeting – whether it is scheduled or recurring – a unique landing page known as a "meeting space" is created for that session. You can then use that page to prepare for the session by configuring settings, uploading files, posting an agenda, and more! You can even invite your attendees to view the meeting space before, during and after the session. Learn more.
