This article applies to Webex Meetings. It describes the options available when you schedule a meeting or webinar from your Webex site. When you schedule a meeting from Webex App and choose a one-time meeting link, you see a subset of these options.

You can access these advanced options when you're scheduling your meeting.


How to use


Let me choose cohosts for this meeting.


The first person to join the meeting with a host account on this site becomes a cohost.


All attendees who have host accounts on this site become cohosts when they join the meeting


Video Systems

Allow authenticated video systems in your organization to start and join the meeting.


Automatic recording

Ever forgotten to record a meeting? Just select this option when you're scheduling a meeting, so you don't have to worry about that. Your meeting will be automatically recorded as soon as it starts.



Have more inclusive meetings by creating different language channels and assigning interpreters so attendees can understand in their preferred language.


Enabling interpretation disables breakout sessions.


Breakout sessions

Allow participants to break out into smaller groups during your meeting to collaborate and share ideas. You can pre-assign the number of sessions and choose whether to automatically or manually create breakout sessions.

Check out this article for more information about breakout sessions.


Anonymous meeting

Choose whether to show anonymous display names for attendees instead of their original names.



Choose whether attendees must register before they can join your meeting.


Registration cannot be used with recurring meetings or if the Join before host option is selected. If these options are selected, registration is disabled for the meeting, and any previous attendee registrations are permanently deleted. To recover these attendee registrations, please contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center.

You can set a registration cap, automatically accept all registrations, and customize your registration form.


If you have 1000, 3000, or 5000-user plan, you can accept a maximum of 10,000 registrations. If you have a 10,000, 25,000, 50,000, or 100,000-user plan, you can accept 20% more registrations than your plan allows. For example, if you have a 10,000-user plan, you can accept 12,000 registrations.

Although you can accept more registrations than your plan allows, only the number of attendees allowed by your plan can join your meeting. For example, if you have a 10,000-user plan, only 10,000 users can join. If you have 1000, 3000, or 5000-user plan, only 1000, 3000, or 5000 users can join, respectively.

Customizations include creating your questions to be included in the registration for this event and your future events. You can also preview your custom registration form before you save it.

Email reminder

We all get busy doing other things and can easily lose track of time. Send yourself a reminder before the meeting starts, so you don't miss it.


The reminder is only sent to the meeting host.


Meeting options

You can specify what you want attendees to be able to do during a meeting. You can allow attendees to use meeting features such as posting a message to the chat window for all to see and taking notes.


Attendee privileges

You can give attendees some specific privileges, such as being able to share content. We've made some common selections, but you can make any adjustments.
