Invite your team

From your Dashboard, select Invite teammates and enter an email address to send them instructions for getting started. To send out multiple invites, click Invite people to Webex at the bottom of the same page.

If they haven't signed up after two days, they'll automatically get a reminder email. You can manually resend the invitation at any time.

Create a team

Teams help you keep everything organized by categorizing multiple spaces under a common theme. For example, you may have a team for a large project that includes cross-department members all working together on specific pieces of the project. When you're creating a team, you can also select an emoji and add it to the name.

To create a team, go to Teams and click Create a team.

Create a team space

After you've created or joined a team on Webex App, you're automatically added to the team's General space. As the work on the team grows, you might need to add more specialized spaces. You and any other team member can create new team spaces.

To create a team space, go to Teams, choose the team you want to add a space to, and click Create a space.

Connect to audio and video

Before you start or join your meeting, you'll see a preview window where you can choose how you'd like to connect to audio and video. The easiest way is to connect using your computer audio.

You can also turn off your video before you join.

Webex remembers your preference for your next meeting.

Host your first meeting

To quickly start a meeting, you can use your Personal Room. Think of your Personal Room as your very own virtual conference room. It has an easy-to-remember URL that you can share with other Webex users. The URL never changes, so people always know where to meet you.

To start a meeting now, on the home page of your Webex site, click Start a meeting.

Lock your Personal Room to keep uninvited people from joining your meetings.

Invite others to your meeting

To invite others to a current meeting, click More options > Invite and remind, or copy the meeting link and share it in an email or instant message.

Attendees can also be invited when scheduling a meeting, or from the Calendar in your Meetings site.

Your attendees won't need to download anything. The email invitation has all the details they need to join.

Share a quick start guide attendees to help them get started.

See who joined the meeting

To make sure everyone you invited made it to your meeting, open the Participants panel and check the list.
