Integrating with Cisco Unified Personal Communicator


When Cisco Unified MeetingPlace is integrated with both Cisco Unified Personal Communicator and Cisco WebEx, users who are in a Cisco Unified Personal Communicator conversation can quickly share data through a Cisco WebEx web meeting. The audio portion of the meeting is provided by Cisco Unified Personal Communicator.

Web Meetings that are Initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator

This information applies to web meetings that are initiated from a Cisco Unified Personal Communicator conversation:

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

Meeting passwords and email notifications are not supported.

The web meeting can be accessed only in these 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 meeting.

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

Users cannot access these web meetings by any other means, such as through the Find Meetings feature in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web user portal 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 Username in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile of the meeting initiator.

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

The person who initiates the meeting is the meeting host and must pass the ball to a participant who wants to share.

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

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile settings do not affect the behavior of these web 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 can be set to No in the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user profile of the meeting initiator.

Even if the user profile Can host WebEx meetings field is set to No, the user can still share data in web meetings that are initiated from Cisco Unified Personal Communicator.
