Cisco Webex Meetings recently introduced (via WBS33.3 release, GA Aug2018) a new desktop app and new user experience to deliver simpler, more modern video meetings.
Let's have a look in 4 most important enhancements in my view:
1) New Webex Meetings Desktop app
In the past we had two apps: Productivity Tools app (used for scheduling via outlook and other tasks) and Desktop App (launched when you joined a webex meeting from browser).
Now one single App (Webex Meetings Desktop App) with a new video-centric UX covers all functions (including one-click to start or join a meeting, scheduling and new in-meeting functions).
2) New Video layouts
In the past, Webex Meetings offered active speaker layout only but today it provides rich set of layouts for users to choose. Highlight is the 5x5 grid layout that you can see 25 video participants! Also lock focus function (see more here) has been added.
3) New Webex site design for hosts
Hosts use webex site (usually companyA.webex.com) to login and schedule meetings or finetune their webex services (Personal Room, etc.).
Webex site has been redesigned to provide simplified layout and navigation and modernized look and feel. We still have classic view available for users to choose (at the moment modern view has a subset of classic view but we are working on feature parity).
4) Extended Proximity
Webex automatically (using proximity function (ultrasounds)) detects nearby Video endpoints and asks you whether you want to use them for your meeting. Or you can even use this to share your screen locally without being in a meeting.
** Note: today this works only for on-premises registered Video endpoints. Does not work for cloud-registered endpoints (expecting support in upcoming months).

When agents make manual outbound calls , the skill group is displayed as CUCM_PG_1.Cisco_Voice.defa in Livedata.Is there a way to change / mask the skill group to some other name so that supervisors can view in CUIC as manual outbound.
