Inviting Others to a Meeting

If you have permissions to present, you can invite others to a meeting after the meeting has started. You can invite others to an breakout session or to a scheduled meeting. You cannot invite someone whose availability status is Do Not Disturb.

Note You can invite someone to a meeting that has been restricted to specific participants. If you invite someone to a restricted meeting and that person was not specified as a participant during meeting creation, the invitee must click Join on the meeting invitation dialog box to join the meeting. The invitee cannot attend the meeting from the Meeting Center. If you are unsure if the meeting is restricted, check with the chair before inviting others.

To invite others to a meeting:

  1. During the meeting, click the Invite icon at the top of the participants list Invite. (If you are inviting others to a chat meeting, you can click Actions - "Invite to Meeting..." or the Invite icon.) An invitation dialog box appears.
  2. (Optional) Edit the text in the Topic box if necessary. Be default, the meeting name appears.
  3. In the "User name" box,
    • Enter one or more letters of the name of the person you want to invite. Names that match what you typed appear. Click a name.
    • Click "Find Name in Directory", and type the name and click Search. When you find the name you want, click the name and then click Add.
  4. Click Send. The invitation is sent to the appropriate people. They can respond to the invitation by sending you a private message, joining the meeting, or closing the invitation dialog box. (If the person you are inviting closes the invitation dialog box, you are not notified.)

Note You cannot invite external users to the meeting.
