Manual Pairing

If your device doesn't automatically pair to the Cisco Spark Board, you can add the Cisco Spark Board to your list of devices and select it manually. When you pair manually, you can't open a space on Cisco Spark Board. You can only share your screen on the Cisco Spark Board or use the Cisco Spark Board to make a call.



Manual pairing only works on Windows or Mac.
