WebEx Delegation

I learned that there are two kinds of delegation in WebEx, and they work independently.

You can delegate someone to SCHEDULE your meetings.  It’s a setting on your own profile and applies to all your meetings from then on.   Then when they scheduling from the WebEx interface, they will be prompted to ask if they are doing it for themselves or for you.  This is perfect for any assistant.

You can also schedule someone to START and RUN your meetings.  You do this when you schedule the meeting, and it’s specific to that meeting.  Then, when they log into their WebEx account, they will have the option to Start, rather than Join, that meeting.

The best part about learning this is that I went to figure this out after hearing that someone else had “delegated” a WebEx meeting and I later learned that I had misunderstood and she didn’t know about this feature either!
