Attendees can also join by phone (unless you change the audio conference setting to VOIP-only when you schedule the meeting, for WebEx, "VOIP Only" means computer audio). To schedule an online meeting, do the following:

  1. Under Host a Meeting, click Schedule a Meeting.
  2. On the Schedule a Meeting page, fill in the required fields and click Schedule Meeting. Attendees will receive an email with a link to the meeting as well as a phone number and attendee code (if you selected VOIP-only [meaning just computer audio], only the link will be provided)
