  1. From the upper left, select Profile. From here you can:  
    • [optional]  Add your profile picture 

    • [optional]  Edit your Personal Meeting ID and Personal Link.

      Your personal meeting room is a virtual meeting space that is permanently reserved for you. Many faculty use it for office hours.
      Some people will edit the Meeting ID to be their office phone number and password to something easier to remember.  However, best practice would be to periodically change the password, at least once a semester. You can also create a Personal Link which is an alias for your Personal Meeting Link.
