How do I create a meeting?

Organizers can schedule meetings at any time. You can schedule a one-time meeting or create a personal meeting room if you plan on reusing the session link.

Notice: This article addresses the new GoTo app experience. View How do I schedule meetings from the desktop app? (Classic), Schedule and Start Meetings via Android, or How do I schedule and edit a meeting from the iOS app? for the classic experience.
If needed, you can schedule overlapping sessions. However, only one session can be hosted by an organizer at a time. If you're already in a session and need to leave without ending it for everyone, you can promote any attendee in that session to the organizer role so the session can continue on without you while you switch to the next one. If your meeting runs over the scheduled time, it will continue running without disruption until you actually end or leave it. Keep in mind though that if you are using a personalized meeting page or a recurring room and have back-to-back meetings scheduled, the attendees from your next meeting might start joining your current meeting if you run over. The current time limit for running a successful meeting is 8 hours, this cannot be changed. If you're on a GoTo Connect Free account, your meeting is limited to 40 minutes. A timer will be displayed during your session.

Desktop app or web

  1. Sign in to the GoTo web or desktop app.
  2. Select + Create meeting.
  3. From the Create a meeting window, add a title and determine the type of session you want to create:
    • One-time meeting – Best for hosting a single meeting on a certain day and time.
    • Reusable meeting room – Best for recurring meetings that benefit from a consistent meeting ID and customizable link.
    Note: The timezone will default to your computer's timezone, change as needed and be sure to check that the invitation reflects the correct one before sending it out to attendees.
  4. Customize your session with the additional fields as desired. You can add co-organizers (if your admin has enabled it), enable breakout rooms, edit audio options, add passwords or encryption, and more.
  5. Select Save when finished.
Results: The new meeting will immediately be available in your Upcoming or Rooms tab.
What to do next: Customize your session as desired and then invite others to join. If needed, you can cancel a session ahead of time by opening the session details and then selecting Delete > Delete the meeting to confirm. Be sure to contact any previously invited attendees and notify them of the change.
