# Personal area
Personal area is a server-hosted web page designed for scheduling conferences or editing personal data or the address book.
Unlike the control panel which is accessible only to the administrator, this web page is available to every user.
# How to sign in
On the server guest page, click the Sign in button in the upper right corner. Enter your username and password.
You can request the administrator to provide access credentials for the guest page.
The account lockout policy can be configured on the side of TrueConf Server for the cases when invalid login is entered.
Authentication in the client application and in the personal area can be blocked after multiple failed attempts to enter the password. The maximum number of failed attempts and the lockout period will be determined by the administrator. If you want your user account to be unlocked manually before the lockout period expires, please contact the server administrator.
# Main page
Once you have signed in, you will see a list of conferences scheduled for today and virtual rooms (up to 5) below on the main page.
In the personal area, you can see only the conferences in which you are involved as a participant/owner.
This list does not include the meetings created ad hoc in TrueConf client applications, for example, in the Сonferences → Meet now section of TrueConf for Windows.
# License information
Participation in conferences hosted on your server is determined by separate PRO licenses. If you do not have such a license, you will not be able to join an event as a participant, owner or moderator.
Information about your PRO license will be displayed on the main page of the personal area right below your name (and in the notification at the bottom of the page):
If you have a permanent PRO license, in addition to the title, you will also see the help button with additional information.
If you have a temporary PRO license, you will see its expiry period and the help button with additional information.
2. Renew a temporary license manually for 24 hours.
If the license is not given, the corresponding text hint will be displayed below your name:
The administrator of your TrueConf Server can disable the display of information about the PRO license and make it impossible for users to renew such licenses manually. This means that the administrator fully controls the distribution of licenses and if you are unable to participate in a conference due to some reason, contact the administrator.
