There may be times when you wish to have someone host a meeting in your Personal Meeting Room without you being present. These steps will allow you to set an alternate host for your Personal Meeting Room.
Begin by logging in to your Webex Meeting site by navigating to https://rensselaer.webex.com/ and clicking Sign In in the upper right.
Depending on which view you use, please follow the instructions for Modern or Classic view. To identify which view you are using, please see the images below.
