Part of the process in scheduling a GoToMeeting from the web is to invite people. When you schedule a meeting, the invite details include a unique link to join the meeting, the date and time, and audio information. The My Meetings page on your GoToMeeting account includes a function to invite people any time before your meeting starts. Learn how easy it is to invite people from your GoToMeeting account in this online video.

- [Corena] After scheduling a meeting, the next important step, of course, is to invite people so that they have the meeting information, and the link to join. In this video, let's look at the most common way to do this, which is adding the meeting information to a calendar invite. In the previous video, I showed you how to schedule a meeting. I added the meeting title, set it to recur, and reviewed my audio choices. So now I'll click save, and the invite people window will come up.
And you can see that the meeting information is included here. There's the unique meeting link to join, the audio information, and if this is your first time using GoToMeeting, you can actually run a test by clicking this link. So, you can test your audio, you can test your internet connection. And what I'm gonna do now is click copy, and it will copy this information to my clipboard. Then I'll go to my calendar invite, which I've already set up here. And I happen to be using Outlook, and I've included the participant, added a subject, and set the date and time.
And then I'll paste that meeting information right here in my calendar invite. So this is ready to go, and I'll click send. And send it out to that person. Now let's take a look at how to invite people after you've already scheduled a meeting. I'll locate my meeting, and then go to the invite icon. And that'll open up this invite people page. I can copy the information, and then paste that into a calendar invite.
So that's it. Really, you can copy and paste the meeting info into any online messaging system, but using a calendar tool is the most common way, and now you know how to do it.
