If you have a host licence, you can easily schedule, start and invite others to your Cisco WebEx from your device.
As a host, you can easily schedule, start and invite others to your Cisco WebEx from your device. From the My Meetings page, press the 'Schedule' button on the app bar. Enter your meeting topic, date and time, meeting password (optional) and your invitees' email addresses. After you schedule the meeting, you will be returned to the My Meetings page. If you want to start an instant meeting, press 'meet now' in the app bar or swipe to the Meet Now page. Enter your meeting topic, meeting password (optional) and your invitees' email addresses. Press 'Start' and you will join the meeting automatically.
Once you enter your meeting, an audio prompt will appear. To receive a call back, select the Call Me option. You will need to enter a call back number in the Call Me screen. Select the option to 'Auto Call Me' if you would like Cisco WebEx to automatically dial this number every time you join a meeting. You will receive a call to join the meeting, so please answer the call and then manually return to the Cisco WebEx for Windows Phone 8 app. This feature is not available in all regions. If the call back feature is disabled, you will be prompted to call into the audio portion of the meeting instead.
To call into a meeting, press 'meeting information' in the app bar to access the call-in numbers. You will then be able to call into the available audio bridge call-in numbers by pressing any number.
If you wish to join the meeting using Internet voice conferencing (VoIP), select the 'Connect Using Internet' option in the audio prompt. Select this option and be instantly connected to the audio using the Internet.
With the app's host capabilities, you can invite people to your meeting by pressing 'Invite' in the app bar. You can use the contacts integration to easily invite your phone's contacts or manually enter in email addresses.
If you are using a CDMA network, such as Sprint or Verizon, network limitations prevent you from having a voice call and using data services at the same time. In this case, joining the audio portion of the meeting through a voice call means you won't be able to view updates to the participant list or shared presentations. If you have access to Wi-Fi or 4G networks, you may be able to use voice and data services simultaneously. Alternatively, consider using VoIP (if available on your device) to connect to your meeting audio.
If you answer a phone call while in a meeting and then tap the meeting notification to return to the meeting, your phone call is put on hold. Press the Back button on the device instead of tapping the notification to avoid placing the call on hold.
From the participant list, choose one individual or all participants to initiate chat. For individual chat, select the participant you want to chat with, enter your message in the dialogue box and hit the 'Send' icon. Tap the 'Chat with All' button at the bottom of the screen to chat with all attendees, then enter your message and hit 'Send' icon. To return to the Participants page, tap the device hard key Back button.
This feature is not supported with this release. You can, however, view content shared from someone else’s computer. In addition, if you are the meeting host, you can pass presenter control to another user on a device with sharing capability.
Check back for future releases that may have this feature implemented.
If the site you are trying to join the meeting on is your company site, contact your Cisco WebEx IT administrator to determine whether mobile access can be enabled. In the meantime, please join the meeting from a computer.
