Configuring Personal meeting settings

Personal meeting settings allow you to manage your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) and related settings. A Personal Meeting ID is a specific meeting ID you can use for all your meetings. Using this ID helps participants associate the meeting to your name, which can be helpful when you meet with the same people frequently.
