WebEx: How Do I - Set Up my Personal Conference Meeting Number and PIN (audio conference calls only)

WebEx allows you to host audio only conference calls through the use of Personal Conference Meetings. Set up your own Personal Conference Number, which can be used anytime, without the need to schedule a meeting through WebEx.

If this is the first time you are setting up your Personal Conference Number (PCN), you will first need to create a PIN number in your WebEx account.

To create a required PIN number in your WebEx account:
 

  1. Open a web browser and go to https://webex.umuc.edu.
  2. Click the My WebEx tab.
  3. You may see the University of Maryland University College Single Sign-on page before you gain access to your WebEx account. Type your UMUC username and password, then click on the LOGIN button.
  4. Select the Preferences link on the left-hand side of the page.
  5. Select the My Personal Room dropdown link, and next to Host PIN enter 4 digits that you will use as your PIN. Important: single-number values and simple sequences (1111,1234) will be excluded

  6. Scroll to the end of the page and click the Save button to save the PIN to your account.

  7. Continue with Step 3 in the instructions below to set up your Personal Conference Meeting Number (PNC).
