    You cannot change the customer name and administrator email after you create the trial. You can modify the other terms of the trial as needed.

    Make sure that the email you provide is not already associated with a Cisco Webex Control Hub account.

Access the Care Card in Cisco Webex Control Hub

Once your partner enables a Care service for your organization and you have set up Care, the Overview Page displays a Care card.

The card displays the status of Care service for your organization, displaying the:

  • Total number of activities for this month

  • Trial status of Care.

    The status icon indicates if Care Services are available or if there is a service outage. For more information about Care Service status, see the Cisco Webex Teams Status page.
