Bots in Webex App

IMPORTANT: Cisco Webex announces discontinuation of the Notion Bot integration with Webex App. This bot will no longer be supported and no new installations will be possible beyond March 31st, 2024. If you have the bot added in a space or have a 1-1 active with the Notion bot, it should continue to work till June 30th, 2024. Post this the bot will stop working. If you would like to build a similar integration on your own, please explore our Webex bot documentation at


Examples of Cisco-developed bots in use.

Bots can help to extend the functionality of Webex App to include a third-party app. You can add bots to Webex App spaces and interact directly with the third-party app from the space. When you've added the bot to the space, you can send ahelpmessage to the bot and the response includes the commands that the bot supports.

You can add a bot to any type of space; add a bot to your project space with other people and interact directly with the third-party app from your space. Or you can create a space with just you and the bot to interact with the third-party app.

Webex App Hub contains a catalog of bots and apps developed by Cisco and third-party developers.

Cards in Webex App

Bots present information within Webex App in various ways. Bot cards make it easier for users to interact directly with the bot’s response to a command. You can select from drop-down menus, use buttons, and even use text fields to update and gather information.

See Buttons and Cards for your Webex apps.

Add the Birthday bot

You can add the Birthday bot to any new or existing space in Webex App. However, the bot works best in group spaces.


Go to Spaces , and choose a space to add the Birthday bot.


You can also create a new space with just the Birthday bot.


Select People, click Add People, then enter the birthday bot name

Once added, the bot will send a welcome message.


Click Request Birthdays, and the bot will send a direct message to everyone in the space asking for their birthday information.

In the direct message space with the Birthday bot, users can add, edit, or delete their birthday information.

Celebrate with the Birthday bot

When it’s someone's birthday, the bot will post a message and a funny GIF in the Webex App space.

In the space with the Birthday bot, you can also send a message to the bot for added functionality:

  • Enter @BirthdayBot upcoming—to check for birthdays.

  • Enter @BirthdayBot add—to add birthdays for new members.

And that's it! Make it easy for your team to join the celebration and make everyone feel special.
