How to Schedule a Webex for Others


These instructions require you to switch to Classic View and create meetings in classic view whenever scheduling a meeting with delegate permissions. See: How do I switch Webex to Classic View.

Alternatively, you can set up a meeting for another person as yourself and designate the other person as the host.

This process allows one WebEx user to become a delegate for another WebEx user for the purposes of scheduling meetings on one’s behalf.

This is a two step process that involves some action from both users.

  • The person being scheduled on behalf of needs to add the scheduler as a delegate
  • The person scheduling the meeting can then choose to schedule on behalf of him/her
