Personal meeting ID (PMI) and personal link in Zoom App

  1. Your personal meeting room can be accessed both by using your personal meeting ID and by using your personal link. Whenever you need to schedule a meeting, you can do so in your own private room that is always available. A meeting can be started at any time or set up for a future date. There is also the option of scheduling or starting an instant meeting with your PMI.

    Additionally, owner and admins of accounts can disable PMI if they wish to require that meeting ID’s be generated by their users constantly. To update the meeting ID for previously scheduled meetings that used the PMI, users will have to edit any previously scheduled meetings that used it in order to disable the setting and lock the setting. As soon as the meeting ID has been changed, the meeting invitees will need to be re-invited after the meeting ID has been updated.

    Prerequisites

    What is your Personal meeting ID (PMI)?

    You will automatically be assigned a PMI room as a permanent personal meeting room when you sign up for it. It is available for use at any time and can be scheduled for a future meeting. As long as you open your PMI at least once every 365 days, the PMI will remain the same as long as it is used at least once every 365 days, otherwise, it will become invalid and you will have to create a new PMI whenever you access your Profile page.
