Modifying User Group Default Settings for Cisco WebEx

The default user group setting for web conferencing provider is Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. The default user group setting for Hide Web Conference Provider is Yes. In this procedure, you use the MeetingTime application to modify the default user group settings.


Cisco recommends that you put all users who need Cisco WebEx scheduling capability into one group.


There are two user profile and group profile settings that need to be configured to enable Cisco WebEx integration for users. These are:

  • Hide Web Conference Provider-Determines whether the end user can choose a web conferencing provider on the scheduling page. It is set to yes by default for all profiles.
  • Default Web Conference Provider-Determines the default web conferencing provider that will be used for all meetings scheduled by this user. By default, this is set to 0, which represents the standard Cisco Unified MeetingPlace web conferencing interface. A value of 1 represents Cisco WebEx.
