Webex isn't as popular over here in Germany as it is in other countries, esp. the USA. Thus, I haven't had to familiarize myself with that software until now. Now a new client wants me to do trainings in Webex Meeting, and I have tested a bit with the free version that they offer. During the tests I have come across the following issues for which I haven't been able to find an answer for:
1. Is there any chance that the participants can use a Webex whiteboard in the breakout rooms? If yes, how can they find it? There's none listed when using the share function in a Webex breakout room.
2. How can I make Webex recognize the PPT slide show window as an application for screen sharing? In my tests Webex offers only one option to choose PPT as an application and opens the screen share to the presenter view as default. To show the actual PPT slide show there only seems to be the alternative to share my second monitor. That however glues the menu bar with all the Webex functions to the top of that second monitor.
3. Is there any chance to move that menu bar from that second monitor to my other one during screen share? I always place chat and participant windows on my first monitor because it's the bigger one, and I would love to have all the Webex options on that monitor and just the PPT slide show on the other one.
4. I often ask my participants to annotate on my slides or a whiteboard. In Webex, I only seem to be able to activate annotation for the participants by individually clicking on their names in the participant list and set the appropriate check mark. Is there any other way to this, like a general setting in the room options, that I could use? Especially since participants are no longer able to annotate after coming back from breakout rooms?
So, if you're a Webex expert, do you know how to solve these issues? I'd very much appreciate any help I can get.
