Step-by-Step Installation Instructions for Mac OSX Users
Step 1: Setup a Free Account:
Before you can install GoToMeeting on your Mac you need to create an account. If you don’t already have an account, GoToMeeting offers a free 30 day trial. The free trial doesn’t require a commitment. You can cancel at any time.
Step 2: Install the Software:
Once you’ve created your GoToMeeting account, you need to install the software. You’ll be prompted to install the software when you complete the sign up process. If you need to re-download the software, you can do it by following this link (you must have an account). When prompted, make sure you click the “Always run on this site” button, otherwise, the installation will fail.
Step 3: Meet Now or Schedule a Meeting
Once you’ve installed the software you’ll be prompted to “Meet Now” or “Schedule a Meeting”. If you’re not ready to host your first meeting, just close the window. GoToMeeting saves a quick-start icon to your desktop, so you can instantly start a meeting in the future. You can move this shortcut to your dock, or any other location.
