Every meeting via Video in the app uses a meeting ID. A random ID is created whenever you start an instant meeting or schedule a meeting.
 
If you’d like to have a specific meeting ID, you can create your own Personal Meeting ID (PMI). This can help the participants associate the meeting with your name. It is also ideal to use when you meet with people regularly. To learn more, visit Configuring Video settings in the app desktop and web.

How to find your Personal Meeting ID

In the app, you can find your Personal Meeting ID by navigating to the Video menu via the left-hand navigation bar. The Personal Meeting ID is at the top.
