May 2021 focuses on these convenient new options:

  • Customizable stage view
  • Recording availability
  • Mac users and Outlook scheduling

Webex Meeting Experience

The new customizable stage gives you control of who and what you see during a Webex meeting. Choose side-by-side or stack, then drag and drop participants from the film strip to the stage.

This is a great way to

  • get a closer look at a participant or shared content
  • place an active speaker next to shared content
  • keep non-verbal attendees in view (a sign-language interpreter, for example).

As a host, you can even sync your customized view to all participants. A convenient tool tip helps walk you through the process.

Recording Availability Indicator Icon

Users can now check how long it will take for a recording to generate after a meeting by logging in to their Webex site and checking the My Recorded Meetings page.

Outlook Webex Scheduling

To schedule Webex meetings in Microsoft Outlook, Mac users need to install the Cisco Webex Meetings Scheduler for Microsoft Office 365 add-on.

For now, Windows users will still see Productivity Tools in Outlook on the Downloads page of their Webex site.
