I do not want people to see messages coming up while presenting
When you're sharing screens in an important meeting, I think you should turn off unnecessary software as much as possible so you can focus more on the meeting. You can disable the Webex popover, but it's possible that other programs will also have popovers.
There is a way to do this in WebEx Meeting. It's just kind of clunky. It's under the Participant Menu as "assign privileges" and another option under the Meeting Menu as Options. You can just remove the option of Chat. The Host can restore it after the Presenter is finished if needed. Like I said, it's clunky. A quick "do not disturb" button would be better. The Presenter, Host and Cohosts should be able to do this on the fly.
Please expedite this feature request
CANNOT BELIEVE DND IS NOT A DEFAULT WHEN PRESENTING!
Is this feature not already available by sharing the application instead of the screen?
For me this should be simple: If they change the "presenting" mode on Webex Teams to act the same way as the Do Not Disturb mode, all the issue would be solved. Having to change manually to Do Not Disturb every time that you are sharing your screen, doesn't make any sense.
I'll agree, however, that messages within the tool (e.g. Teams) can/should be allows to be restricted if presenting in Teams though. That's a no brainer.
I don't see this as a Webex issue. All modern OS's have the feature to disable messages, popup or notices. Learning to use the built-in features is a lot better than adding another feature to a tool to control things like that.
blows my mind that this isnt a default
Some ideas on this site simply fix minor annoyances.Other ideas, like this one, are the difference between building successful relationships with your coworkers, or embarassing yourself and causing lots of problems with your coworkers.
Consider this feature "essential". It's one of those things that will either make people be happy they're using your product, or motivate them to explain to all their friends how your product single-handedly caused a lot of problems for everyone. The difference between a high level executive saying "I'm glad Webex respected my privacy during that big presentation!" and "We're dropping support for Webex because it leaked private company information." is pretty big. The marketing value alone should be worth the small amount of developer time to make sure this feature is implemented correctly.
Dominic my screen does not automatically flip to do not disturb and does not prevent messages from showing up. If there is a setting to that it'd be AMAZING!
maybe I'm missing something here.. but when I am joining a meeting through my teams client and sharing my screen, my teams status changes to red and suppresses the notification on my laptop.
Huge! Users are currently logging off Webex Teams when presenting so that messages are not showing on their screen
I wish I could vote for this 10 times. Nearly every one of my meetings have webex messages popping up while the presenter is sharing their screen.
DND should just be the default to mistake proof this.
This is very disruptive and can be embarrassing as well.... @April: Thanks for the tip will remembers to go on DND before meetings.... Given that this is a smaller feature I would hope that the web ex prioritizes this...
Nothing makes your heart skip an extra beat when you are sharing your screen with a client and see a WebEx Team notification pop up because you forgot to go on Do Not Disturb.
This is problematic any would be a great improvement. You have to log out of WebEx before presenting to avoid the pop ups and I don't always remember. It is disruptive.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
