Once scheduled, public meetings and webinars will be accessible on your calendar for that period of time.

The following requirements must be met in order to enable the public event list:

  • Whether it is a business account, an enterprise account, or an educational account
  • ┬áthe vanity URL must be approved
  • For the option to appear in the web portal, it must be enabled by support. Upon contacting support, the feature will be enabled within a maximum of 3 business days after the request has been made.
