How do I start a scheduled meeting? (Classic)

    After you schedule a meeting, you can start it at its scheduled time or before, which makes it easy to practice ahead of time.

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