If you have the Webex Assistant for Meetings, the Captions & Highlights panel replaces the Closed Captions panel.

There are some things to keep in mind before you start managing and taking notes:

  • If all participants are allowed to take notes, they cannot publish their notes to others during the meeting, but they can save them.

  • A single note taker can publish notes at any time during the meeting or webinar, or they can send a meeting transcript to all participants.

  • A closed captionist can publish captions in real time during the meeting or webinar, and they can also send a transcript containing the captions to all participants.

  • The notes feature is not available on the Mac.
