Including participants in a GoToMeeting session is a simple procedure that enables you to efficiently collaborate and communicate with your team or clients. In this article, I will walk you through the steps of adding attendees to a GoToMeeting session, while also sharing my own helpful insights and strategies.

Step 1: Schedule a GoToMeeting Session

To add attendees to your GoToMeeting session, you first need to schedule a meeting. Log in to your GoToMeeting account and navigate to the “Meetings” tab. Click on the “Schedule Meeting” button to start scheduling a new meeting.

Here, you can provide a title and description for your meeting, set the date and time, and choose the duration. You can also configure additional settings such as audio options, recording preferences, and password protection for added security.

Step 2: Invite Attendees

Once you have scheduled your GoToMeeting session, it’s time to invite your attendees. In the email invitation, include all the necessary details such as the meeting date, time, and access link. You can personalize the invitation by adding a warm message or any additional instructions.

Alternatively, you can copy the meeting URL and share it with your attendees through other communication channels like instant messaging or project management tools. This provides flexibility for your attendees to join the meeting through their preferred method.

Step 3: Allow Joining In Different Ways

GoToMeeting offers various options for attendees to join the meeting. You can allow attendees to join via the GoToMeeting desktop app, web browser, or by dialing in using their phone. Make sure to clearly communicate these options in your invitation so that attendees can choose the most convenient method for them.

Step 4: Managing Attendees during the Meeting

During the GoToMeeting session, you have control over managing the attendees. As the host, you can mute or unmute attendees, restrict screen sharing capabilities, and remove participants if needed. These features ensure smooth and productive collaboration during your meeting.


Adding attendees to a GoToMeeting session is a simple process that allows you to connect and engage with your team or clients effectively. By following the steps outlined in this article, you can easily schedule your meetings, invite attendees, and manage participants during the session.
