How do I schedule a meeting? (Classic)

    GoTo Meeting gives you the convenience of scheduling and managing meetings from multiple places. You can schedule a meeting from your account on the web, desktop app, iOS app, Android app, or email calendar.

    Attention: We have a new GoTo app! This article covers the classic GoTo Meeting experience. View How do I create a meeting? for the new GoTo.

    Learn about meeting types

    GoToMeeting provides a few different types of sessions, which allows you to pick whichever one best suits your needs.
    • One-time meetings – These meetings have a set date and time, as well as a unique meeting ID and audio information. While you can launch the same meeting multiple times (which is particularly useful for practicing your meetings), the meeting ID will expire 30 days after the scheduled end time. To create this type of session, you can select "Occurs once" while scheduling your meeting.
    • Recurring or online meeting room meetings – These meetings also have a unique meeting ID and audio information, but they do not have a set date or time. This means that they never expire and can be used over and over! These "anytime" meetings are great for recurring sessions, such as weekly sync ups or team meetings. To create this type of session, you can select "Occurs multiple times" while scheduling your meeting.
    • Instant meetings ("Meet now") – You can use our "meet now" sessions to start a meeting on the fly. These sessions are not scheduled ahead of time – they are just launched instantly with the click of a button! If you need to set up a quick meeting, you can start a "meet now" session and simply send others the Join URL once it has launched. Unlike scheduled one-time meetings (which can actually be launched multiple times), "meet now" sessions can only be run once and then the meeting ID expires. Learn more.
    • Personal meeting page (GoToMeet.Me) – You can create your own personalized meeting page featuring your name, photo, location and more! Personal meeting rooms are powered by a recurring meeting, but rather than sending your attendees a Join URL, you can share your personal meeting URL (e.g., ""). Learn more.
