Using your Personal Meeting ID in the RingCentral app
desktop and web | RingCentral app

Every meeting via RingCentral Video and RingCentral Meetings in the RingCentral app uses a meeting ID. A random ID is created whenever you start an instant meeting or schedule a meeting.
 
If you’d like to have a specific meeting ID, you can create your own Personal Meeting ID (PMI). This can help the participants associate the meeting to your name. It is also ideal to use when you meet with people regularly. To learn more, visit Configuring RingCentral Video settings on RingCentral app desktop and web.
 
Note: For RingCentral Video, a PMI consists of nine digits for RingCentral MVP accounts or 12 digits for RingCentral Video Pro and Pro+ users. A PMI for RingCentral Meetings has 10 digits.
