Getting Started with WebEx

 

To get started with WebEx, you need

  • A host account on your WebEx site.

     

  • The WebEx URL for your WebEx site.

     

  • Your WebEx username and password.

     

The welcome email that you receive from your Administrator contains your WebEx URL. Visit the URL to sign in to your WebEx site. From there, you can easily meet online, over the phone or your computer, with anyone anywhere in the world.

  

Note


The welcome email that you receive may also include a link for you to create a password for your account. To create a password for your account, select    Create Password.

If your WebEx site uses Single-Sign-On (SSO), use those credentials to sign in to WebEx.


Log in to Your WebEx Site

The welcome email that you receive contains the site URL, your username, and a link to set up your password. If your site uses SSO, you use those credentials to sign in to your WebEx site.

      
1    Visit your WebEx URL.
2    Select Log In.
3    At the prompt, enter your username and your password, then select Sign In.

Set up Your Center

Depending on your organization, you can have one or more of the following centers; Meeting Center, Event Center, Training Center, and Support Center.

All centers are automatically set up when you host or join a meeting or session. You can save time by setting them up, on Windows or Mac, before the meeting or session.

       
1    Visit your WebEx URL and sign in to your WebEx site.
2    Choose the corresponding tab for the center that you want to set up.

For example, to set up Meeting Center, select the Meeting Center tab.

3    In the navigation tree, expand Set Up and then select the center.

For example, to set up Meeting Center, select Set Up > Meeting Center.

4    Select Set Up and then select OK.

Install Productivity Tools

Cisco Productivity Tools provides shortcuts that enable you to start, schedule, or join a meeting without having to sign in to your Cisco WebEx site.

Your site administrator can set WebEx up to automatically download the Productivity Tools the first time that you sign in. If not, we highly recommend that you download it from your WebEx site.

           
1    Visit the URL for your WebEx site, and sign in to your account.
2    Select the Meeting Center tab.
3    On the Meeting Center: Downloads page, select your operating system (Windows or Mac).
4    Select Download.
5    Select Save File.
6    Navigate to the folder to which you want to save the installation file, and then select Save.
7    Open the folder to which you saved the installation file, and then double-click the installation file.
8    Follow the on-screen prompts to install Cisco Productivity Tools.
