Thank you all for your continuous support of our live Community Events. In recent months, we have been hosting one event a month, primarily focused on highlighting customer's adoption stories and how they transformed their organizations. Due to feedback and asks from community members, we are starting a new event series starting in the new year called Walkthrough Wednesdays, which are 30-minute sessions that focus on technical walkthroughs of Webex's latest and greatest features/updates.
Led by our Technical Marketing Engineer team, Walkthrough Wednesdays are intended for our IT admins and adoption champions but welcomes our end users as well! These half-hour events will be hosted on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month, so make sure to join us! Below is our first Walkthrough Wednesday event, which will focus on the new Webex App!
In January, our event schedule will be the following:
January 6th – Walkthrough Wednesday: The new Webex App
January 13th – Adoption Spotlight – Horacio Benedicto: Webex and Returning to the Office
January 20th – Walkthrough Wednesday: Webex Events 2.0
The recording of the event will be posted here following the event. If you have any questions or feedback about the event, feel free to respond to this post.
@ssteffensen1 Great call out. That is a difference between the new PMR for Webex app and Webex Meetings. You can chat in Webex Meetings. As things progress, yes, the chat panel will be added to the new Webex.
The join meeting experience from the Webex app is like joining a Webex meeting from a Video Endpoint - and therefore there are restrictions on what you can or can not do. Currently in EFT is the ability to launch the Webex meetings experience from within the app when joining meetings.
Control of a Unified Communications Manager (Unified CM) registered deskphone is supported with the Webex application today assuming the Webex application is configured for Unified CM calling.
For more information on deskphone control with Webex, please refer to the Webex | Make Calls with Your Desk Phone article available at https://help.webex.com/en-us/5mgmmb/Webex-Make-Calls-with-Your-Desk-Phone.
And for more information on Webex application with Unified CM calling, please refer to the Deployment Guide for Calling in Webex (Unified CM) available at https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/cloudCollaboration/wbxt/ucmcalling/unified-cm-wbx-teams-deployment-guide.html.
Hope that helps.
Yes this is correct. I've been told by my rep that this option is in Beta version and to be soon released but it's been 2 months. I also saw this mentioned on Cisco's website but no release date?
We are a premium customer of Webex and would love to share these events internally. I applaud the efforts here, however upon a review the recording of the 01/06 event, much work is needed to smooth out the delivery of information.
I have shared the link for 01/20 so hoping that Event is more polished and informative.
Again, thanks for your efforts and looking forward to see great things from your team!
Hi @Gregory Lane ,
Thanks for joining us for our first WW event. Yes, I agree with you, we do have plenty of room to grow to ensure a smooth and meaningful event. This is the first technically-driven event we have done, so we will be continuing to improve our process and session structure.
Thank you for the feedback, it really does help us create a more powerful experience. The next event will be turned up a notch, and dive deeper on the IT admin side.
Thanks for being patient with us. See you on Jan 20!
