Join by Dialing the Video Address

Dial the video address from the calendar invite or from the meeting information page.

1

Open the virtual keyboard or get the remote control for your video system.

For example, tap Call and then tap the keyboard button on the keypad.

2

Dial the video address in one of the following formats:

  • <meeting_number>@webex.com for a scheduled Webex meeting
  • <Personal_Room_ID>.<site_name>@webex.com for an instant or scheduled Webex Personal Room meeting
  • IP address for an instant or scheduled Webex Personal Room meeting or a scheduled Webex meeting. Enter the meeting number when prompted.

     
    IP dialing is not available for FedRAMP-authorized Webex offerings.
3

Enter the numeric meeting password, if prompted.

The numeric meeting password is only needed for scheduled Webex meetings, not Webex Personal Room meetings.

4

When prompted, do the following:

  • If you are the host, enter the host key or host PIN, as appropriate, followed by the pound sign # to start the meeting.
  • If you are not the host, enter the pound sign # to join the meeting.

Join by Dialing the Meeting Number and a Shortcut (cloud-registered Webex video devices only)

Dial the meeting number from the calendar invite.

1

Open the virtual keyboard or get the remote control for your cloud-registered Webex room or desk device.

For example, tap Call and then tap the keyboard button on the keypad.

2

Dial the meeting number plus a prefix, suffix, or both. If your laptop or mobile device is already connected to a video device, that device will also join the meeting.

Your administrator has the option to enable this feature and define which characters are needed for the prefix, suffix, or both so you can dial the meeting number instead of the video address, as shown in the following examples:

  • If the meeting number is 987654321 and your administrator has set a prefix of *77*, you can join the meeting by dialing *77*987654321.

    Figure 1. Call
  • If the meeting number is 987654321 and your administrator has specified a suffix of #, you can join the meeting by dialing 987654321#.

Join by Tapping the Join Button

If your Webex site and account support joining meetings from Cisco TelePresence systems or Cisco Webex video devices, you can use One Button to Push (OBTP).

To enable OBTP, your site must have the Cisco TelePresence Management Suite and TelePresence Management Suite Extension.

When your TelePresence room is added as a room resource, tap Join Meeting directly on the device.

If the host has not yet joined, you may be asked to enter the host PIN and press # to join the meeting. If a numeric password is required on joining, even if the host has already joined, you must always enter this password followed by # to join.

Join Using the Join Webex Button on a Video Device

If the meeting host is running late or can't make it, you can join and host the meeting from a video device on WBS39.5 and later sites. For more information, see Join Using the Join Webex Button on a Video Device.
