If you don't need all the default buttons, there is a set of configurations that you can use to remove them. Custom In-Room Control panels can be exposed still. Removing default buttons, while adding custom buttons, makes it possible fully to customize the user interface.

For example, you can remove the Call and Share buttons if nobody is going to share content or call from this device. Instead, add custom buttons (In-Room Controls) for the tasks that are going to be performed.


Use the following configurations to remove default buttons from the user interface. The configurations are available both from the web interface of the device, and in the API. Read the Advanced Settings article for information how to access the web interface and use the API. The web interface is also referred to as the Advanced Settings of the device.

  • UserInterface > Features > Call > Start (xConfiguration UserInterface Features Call Start): Removes the default Call button (including the directory, favorites, and recent calls lists). Also removes the Add participant button while in a call.

  • UserInterface > Features > Call > End (xConfiguration UserInterface Features Call End): Removes the End Call button.

  • UserInterface > Features > Call > MidCallControls (xConfiguration UserInterface Features Call MidCallControls): Removes the Hold, Resume, and Transfer in-call buttons.

  • UserInterface > Features > Call > VideoMute (xConfiguration UserInterface Features Call VideoMute): Removes the Video On or Off button.

  • UserInterface > Features > Call > JoinWebex (xConfiguration UserInterface Features Call JoinWebex): Removes the Join Webex button.

  • UserInterface > Features > Share > Start (xConfiguration UserInterface Features Share Start): Removes the default user interface for sharing and previewing content, both in call and out of call.

  • UserInterface > Features > HideAll (xConfiguration UserInterface Features HideAll): Removes all the default buttons. In-Room Control panels are not removed.

The configurations remove only the buttons, not the functionality as such. You can still share content using the Cisco Webex Teams app, even if you have removed the Share button from the user interface.
