Allow the meeting owner to manage a presentation clock/timer to keep meetings on schedule

Meetings often go off topic and you always have certain people who beat dead horses, over-analyze, filibuster, and otherwise spend too much time speaking. The introduction of a presentation timer keeps agenda items on time and the participants are treated more fair. There's no "let Steve continue because he's the boss." Everyone gets the allotted time for their agenda item. It has the additional benefit of training people to better prepare for their allotted time so that even in meetings without timers, they are better at managing their meeting time. Also - the meeting owner should be able to choose between an audible buzzer or silent. The buzzer should have a few options - from polite to down-right rude/obnoxious for the more whimsical folks.

    This seems so simple... other meeting tools have this. Why has Cisco not implemented something that would be very beneficial?

    It should be nice to show a timer when someone is talking.

    it should be possible to restart the timer for individual presentations along the meeting agenda

    I can't believe that Cisco still hasn't added this feature!!! Of course you can do this in Zoom with an app. Just another reason to dump WebEx!!!!

    Agree, when meetings have multiple presentations that have a limited time to present, it would be great to have an onscreen timer to keep everyone on track.

    An absolutely good idea! not only for guests who present, but for actual teachers who use webex for online lessons and go beyond the time allotted for their lesson!
