How to host an audio-only Webex meeting

This article details how to use the Join by phone information in a Personal Room to host a phone conference without the need for the web interface.

If you are using audio-only conferencing, creating a personal conferencing number will be extremely helpful for scheduling and/or delegating hosted meetings.You can create and store up to three Personal Conference number accounts. When scheduling a Personal Conference meeting, select one of your Personal Conference number accounts to use for the audio portion of the Personal Conference meeting. You can also use your Personal Conference number account to start an instant audio conference from any phone without scheduling it first. For each account, you can generate host and attendee access codes.

Your Personal Conference number account also specifies the host access code that you want to use to start the audio portion of the Personal Conference meeting, and the attendee access codes that attendees can use to join the audio portion of the meeting.
