It is not possible to use my Personal Meeting ID when using the Outlook plugin.  Would it be possible to change this?

We are looking for a static Meeting ID that stays the same. Just as Andrew mentioned, a customized meeting ID would be nice too.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled RC Mtgs outlook plugin and private meeting id.

Like the others, we love the private meeting ID available in RC Meetings.  But the bugaboo is that the Outlook Addin for RC Meetings doesn't use it, severely limiting it's value in our environment.  

I've reviewed the other cases here in the forum, and see it mentioned a few times over the last few months, but don't see any official acknowledgement or answer.

I've just removed and re-added the plugin, hoping that it had been resolved.  Nope.

Any official word on this capability?

Thank you!

I am in the same boat! I would love if the Outlook plugin could use my personal ID like RC Desktop can do. Cant stand all the random ID's when booking meeting from Outlook!

This may not help everyone here, but in the RC Meetings app you can change/customize the ID.  

Starting from the main page, click Meetings , then Edit, and Change, and you'll see an field to enter in a new ID.

Sure, just to be clear, we all love the capability you describe. This thread is saying we want to see the same capability added to the Outlook plugin for Meetings.

This is because we live inside of outlook, scheduling our meetings.  We don't want to have to jump to a different tool.  The personal meeting ID is a GREAT feature, we just want in over in the plugin as well.

Understood.  Yes,  I agree with the main request.  I just know that we occasionally get a few people that don't realize you can change that number.

Hey Everyone!

If you click the Schedule a Meeting button in Outlook, you will see the option below :)

This is very helpful. I think the issue people are having is that when you add a RingCentral meeting request to an existing calendar appointment, it uses a different add-in and you aren't able to user your personal Meeting ID
