For information about the features available in the full web meeting room and the lite web meeting room, see the User Guide for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express Release 2.x.


This field applies to both scheduled and reservationless meetings.


Restriction: Changes to this field are applied to each user only when the user logs in to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express after the change has been made. Therefore, if a user is logged in when this field is modified, the previous setting applies until the user logs out and logs back in.


Recommendation: If your system has fewer web ports than voice ports available for scheduled and reservationless meetings, set this field to Participant list only (no licenses required) for most users. This configuration helps to keep web ports available for the users who need the full web meeting room to share files or applications. If you want all or most users to be able to schedule full web meetings, make sure that an equal number of web ports and voice parts are available on your system for scheduled and reservationless meetings. See the System Capacity Planning.
