What is a Personal Meeting ID?
Each time you launch or schedule a new meeting in the Zoom app, a new meeting with a new meeting ID number is created. As such, it is essential that all attendees have the correct meeting ID in addition to the date and time of the meeting. Just like in a face-to-face meeting, the "when" is useless without the "where," and vice versa.
A remedy to the complexity of a new meeting ID number being creating each time you host a meeting, is the permanent ID number associated with your individual Zoom account. Using your Personal Zoom Meeting ID, you can have your own virtual meeting space where you are always assigned the role of Host.
Although it is strongly recommended that your Personal Meeting ID not be used for large meetings or classes; your Personal Meeting ID can be used to recreate meetings for one-on-one consultations/meetings, or for your virtual office hours. Avoiding the use of your Personal Meeting ID for larger meetings or class sessions can help reduce the risk of unwanted disturbances or zoom "crashers" as this ID does not change and can therefore be more vulnerable to those interruptions.
Individuals with Licensed Zoom accounts can also change their Personal Meeting ID in the web application, if needed.
