Help

On Windows and Mac, you'll see Help at the bottom of your spaces list. By default, that link brings you to our Webex Teams page on our Collaboration Help site, but your administrator might customize that link to direct you to another site instead.

Spaces

Your group work takes place in spaces, either in groups or in direct messages with another person. They display prominently so you can get to them whenever you need to. Your most recently active spaces are at the top. If anyone has added you to a new team or space, you'll see it here too. When someone's posted a new message in the space, you'll see the bolded space name.

You'll sometimes see icons letting you know what's happening in your spaces. These notifications give you information about new messages you've received and spaces you've been added to.

Navigation Menu

Switch easily among your message, team, call, and meeting views. Messages appear by default, but your teams, calls, and meetings are just a click away. When you have unread messages in your spaces or teams, you'll see counters next to Spaces and Teams .

Profile and Preferences

In the app header click your profile to update your picture or name, access your settings and preferences, and set your availability. If you have some important work to finish or are on a call, let people know that you don't want to be disturbed: whether that's for a few minutes or an entire day is up to you.

Status

In the app header click Set a status, select a status from the list or create and share any status you want, so your colleagues know what you're up to.

Search

In the app header, just click Search, meet, and call to search through the history of your conversations to find people you're talking to, spaces you're in, messages you received, and files you need.

Filters

Start a Conversation, Make a Call, or Add a Contact

In the app header, click , and select Send a direct message to create a direct message space between you and just one other person, or select Create a Space to start a group conversation. You can also select Make a call, or select Add a contact.

Devices

In the app header on Windows and Mac, you can connect automatically with Webex devices from the Connect to a Device menu. When connected, you can share your screen, start a call, or open a space (on Webex Board). You can also connect to your desk phone from the menu to make calls and join meetings. If you have a lot of devices close by, you can set certain devices to not automatically connect.
