SummaryScheduling or updating a RingCentral Meeting is typically done by the Host of the meeting. It can be done using the RingCentral Meeting for Desktop or Mobile. A Meeting ID is generated once you have scheduled a meeting and invites are sent to participants by email, as a private message or through text messaging. When you invite via default calendar or Gmail calendar, the invitation instructions are automatically pasted to the invite. You can also choose to copy the invitation URL.

IMPORTANT: Scheduling a Meeting using RingCentral Meetings for Desktop prompts you to create and save the Meeting event in your Calendar app, such as Outlook or Google Calendar.

When setting up a RingCentral Meeting from a Global Office, a Conference bridge and Meeting ID will be generated. You can use the conference bridge to join the meeting or select the specific US International Dial-In number or UK International Dial-In number for the country you are located in.

• Non-recurring meeting ID will expire 30 days after the meeting is started. You can re-start the same meeting ID within the 30days.  

You can re-use the meeting ID for future occurrence. That means, if you need to re-schedule a meeting, simply update your schedule on your calendar. It is not necessary to update the meeting on the RingCentral Meetings scheduler. You can do so if you want by clicking on Meetings > Edit. However, this is not necessary. 

• We also do not need an Outlook plugin as we do not need to sync your calendar and the RingCentral Meetings scheduler. The Meeting ID provided is robust enough for you to make changes to your calendar without having to sync calendars and RingCentral Meetings scheduler.
