Chat and Polls on video devices

It would be incredibly useful to have meeting chats and polls be able to appear on video system displays. Particularly personal devices like DeskPro and DX units. even better to make them interactive.

They could be unobtrusive, and just have a small icon sit on the side of the screen, like the mute icon, that when tapped will pop-out a small overlay.

    Viewing the chat on DeskPro is great, but typing is also necessary. This missing feature obstructed multiple training calls where I could not participate like other users.

    I think everyone understands it's a must have, we should be even talking about this.

    Just crazy that this wasn't automatically considered a mandatory capability - we need the Cisco HW & SW to operate seamlessly - more rather than less functionality when using them together.

    We really need to add this feature.

    Really need this feature. Makes no sense that a messaging platform does not support chat feature

    Just got my Desk Pro and it is pretty disappointing that this high level endpoint cannot send chat messages within the meeting, nor in the Webex App window on the Desktop when using the endpoint for a meeting. The in-meeting messages pop up for a second but if you missed them, they are gone and you can't view the history either.

    The only thing missing is ability to see in-meeting Chats. I can only see the chats when I join from my Outlook calendar.

    I love my DeskPro, and the app integrations. Chat would be a great addition.

    ...shocking! hope the feature makes it before DeskPro goes EoX

    It's incomprehensible to me that Deskpro -- which is otherwise such a lovely platform -- doesn't have this. Indeed a no-brainer.

    Really need to add chat to DeskPro! Difficult in communicating during meeting.

    I cannot believe chat is not supported on deskpro! Gross oversight in my opinion!

    This feature would really help on scenarios , where you connect Deskpros as extended monitor and use webex in the deskpro to join the meetings.


    Infact it is not possible to chat in this set up

    Running meetings without chat is a real problem. I can't believe this has not yet been addressed.

    Regarding the deskpro as a monitor, this feature seems like a no-brainer.

    Is this on the roadmap?

    absolutly agree, a must have!

    This is essential for us. We use ours as teaching stations at a community college. Students are always asking questions through the chat and the teachers can't see them.

    They could even show up on Room devices as a pop-up and on the Touch 10. On the Touch 10 even participating in the chat would be possible.
