Webex Productivity Tools has two separate packages for WBS39.10 and later versions. Productivity Tools supports integrations with other applications, such as Microsoft Office Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. To make joining and creating Webex meetings easier, you can install Webex Productivity Tools on your Mac. You can then configure your Webex Productivity Tools to your personal preferences.
End of Support for Mac Productivity Tools
The final release for Productivity Tools for Mac will be 41.5 as Microsoft plans to block injection-based plugins on Mac Outlook beginning in mid-May. Mac based Outlook customers who wish to use Webex should move to the Cisco Webex Scheduler.
Webex Productivity Tools is a separate package from the Webex Meetings desktop app from 39.10. Productivity Tools no longer supports integrations with IBM Lotus Notes, IBM Sametime, Microsoft Lync, Internet Explorer, and Skype for Business from 41.2.
