Using Personal Meeting Room

Your Personal Meeting Room is a virtual meeting room permanently reserved for you that you can access with your Personal Meeting ID (PMI) or personal link, if applicable. You can start instant meetings with your PMI, or you can schedule a meeting that uses your PMI. Your Personal Meeting Room is ideal for use with people you meet with regularly. However, because it is always accessible with the same Meeting ID and personal link, it should not be used for back-to-back meetings or people you do not meet with regularly.

Customizing Personal Meeting ID

PMI can be customized to a user preferred number which may be easy to remember like mobile number whatever you like but subject to the availability and Zoom provided set of rules. To change the PMI login to the zoom web site and go to the profile menu.

Using PMI for Instant Meetings

Using PMI for instant meetings with people you meet with regularly is more practical than using normal meeting id which is randomly generated.

Instant meeting can be started by login into Zoom desktop or Mobile app client. Once you logged in you can click on the New Meeting to start an instant meeting.

Method 1: Login to the Zoom desktop client and click on the New Meeting drop down.
