Web-Only Meetings that are Initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator

The following information applies to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web-only meetings that are initiated from a Cisco Unified Personal Communicator conversation:

The person who initiates the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web-only meeting must have an active user profile in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace database.

Meeting passwords and e-mail notifications are not supported for web-only meetings.

The web-only meeting can only be accessed in the following ways:

(For users who are currently using Cisco Unified Personal Communicator) Cisco Unified Personal Communicator automatically opens a browser for all conversation participants when anyone initiates a web-only meeting.

(For users who are not using Cisco Unified Personal Communicator) The person who initiates the web-only meeting must provide the URL to anyone who is not currently using Cisco Unified Personal Communicator.

These web-only meetings cannot be accessed by any other means, such as through the Find or Attend pages in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace end-user web interface or through a Cisco Unified IP Phone screen when subscribed to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace PhoneView.

The meeting subject that appears in reports is userid_WEBONLY_MEETING, where userid is the User ID in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile of the meeting initiator.

Participant Privileges in Web-Only Meetings that are Initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator

All participants are treated as guest users with presenter privileges in the web meeting room. Therefore, all participants can share data, and only the meeting initiator must have a Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile.

Only one pod, the share pod, is available in the web meeting room. The participant list, chat, and note pods that appear in other types of Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web meeting rooms are not available for web-only meetings.

Except for the ability to share data, meeting participants do not have in-session controls, such as the ability to lock, record, or end the meeting from within the web meeting room.

User profile settings do not affect the behavior of these web-only meetings. For example:

Even if the Meeting password required field in the user profile is set to Yes, no passwords are required to attend web meetings that are initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator.

Even though Cisco Unified MeetingPlace treats the meetings that are initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator as private reservationless web meetings, the Use reservationless field may be set to No in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile of the meeting initiator.

Even if the user profile Host web meetings with field is set to Participant list only, the user may still share data in web meetings that are initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator.
