Slack Workspace Owners and Administrators

Your Webex site administrator must enable the Slack integration, and your Slack workspace owner or administrator must install the Cisco Webex Meetings app for Slack so that workspace members can use the Webex Meetings app in Slack.

If you don't have the latest version of the app, your Slack workspace owner or administrator must use these same installation instructions to upgrade the app so you can use the latest features.


You can use the /webexhelp version command to check the app version.

Click Install and follow the instructions.

Team owners and administrators can customize their team’s Slack call settings so that team members always use their Webex Personal Room when starting instant meetings.

1

Go to your Team Settings page

2

Next to Calls, click Expand.

3

Make sure that Enable calling in Slack is checked.

Check the Enable calling in Slack check box
4

Click Cisco Webex Meetings.

5

Click Save.

Only Slack workspace administrators and owners can set and reset the Webex site for the workspace.

If your Slack email address is different from your Webex email address you must manually set your Personal Room with the /webexconfig set_Personal_Room [Personal Room ID] command.

Example: /webexconfig set_Personal_Room acassidy.

1

The Webex site that your team will use for meetings may be set already. To check if the site has been set, in any Slack channel, type /webexconfig.

2

If the Webex site hasn't been set or if you want to set a different Webex site, type /webexconfig site [your Webex site URL] to set the Cisco Webex site URL for your team.

That’s it. Your team members can now type /webex in their messages to share a Join meeting button for their Webex Personal Room meeting with other users in the channel. If your Webex administrator has linked users' Webex accounts to their Slack accounts, team members can schedule Webex meetings.

Webex Site Administrators

Webex site administrators must link users' Webex accounts to their Slack accounts before users with a Slack account can schedule and view their upcoming Webex meetings in Slack. Also, users will be able to join Webex meetings from Slack without having to enter their Webex username and password.


The email addresses for the Webex and Slack accounts should match.

Users


This feature requires Cisco Webex Meetings app version 1.0.1.0 or later, you can use the /webexhelp version command to check your app version. If your app version is not current enough, contact your Slack workspace administrator to uninstall and reinstall the Cisco Webex Meetings app for Slack.

We support the following languages: English (UK), English (US), French, German, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), Spanish (Latin America), and Spanish (Spain).

You can change your language preference to one of several languages in the Slack app. If your preferred language differs from the default language of your workspace, messages visible only to you now appear in your selected language but workspace-wide messages appear in your workspace’s default language.

If another member’s preferred language differs from the default language of the workspace or from your preferred language, messages visible only to that member appear in that member's preferred language.
