A Personal Meeting ID (PMI) or Personal Vanity URL (PVU) is a way for you to have an easy-to-remember unique meeting ID. Think of it as your own virtual office where you can tell people to meet you online.

What would I use it for?

Much like you use your office number to let people know how to get to your physical office, you can provide your PMI or PVU to others in your collaboration so they know how to get to your “virtual office.” If someone goes to your PVU (via web) or accesses your PMI (via the Zoom tool or phone), you will be emailed that someone is waiting in your virtual meeting room. Unlike standard Zoom meetings where the Meeting ID is a random number,your PMI is consistent. Someone using your PMI/PVU to access a meeting will always know that that meeting room is assigned to you.
