Shortening 10 digit meeting ID to 4 digits

Meeting IDs are too long and too hard for my meeting participants to remember. Can I just change my 10 digit ID and trim it down to 4?

Hi Stephen,

Nine is the minimum number for the meeting ID, for security reasons. Users that want something easier to remember publish their "username" URL instead. For instance, mine is bluejeans.com/mikek.  Clicking that URL takes you right into my meeting. The minimum number of letters for the username is five. If you want to change your username, send in that request to support@bluejeans.com and we'll take care of it.

Mike thanks. Does the username alternative work in the app? It appears that the app wants the meeting ID.

Hi Stephen, If you are starting from the app, you need to enter the meeting ID. The app's "enter meeting ID" field will not take the URL name. To use the Name-URL method, you would need to add the URL in your invites ... participant would click it and the app would open, taking them into the meeting.
